July & August happenings and beyond...

Conversation Wednesday - july 12 @ 10:30 a.m.

topic: Ministry is Dangerous -
John Frye is our speaker & facilitator for the morning.

Discussing: How to walk carefully and carry a soft heart in pastoral ministry (even when generational gaps exist among staff).

For those of you who do not know John, he was the senior pastor at Bella Vista church in the Rockford area for more than twenty years. During that time Bella Vista was on the cutting edge of church ministry. Yet, last year John sensed a deep desire and need to leave a position where he could have 'motored on' into retirement. If you have not yet met John and his wisdom, I believe you are missing one of the most thoughtful, wise, and passionate Jesus followers in the entire area. Regardless of your age, treat yourself to 90 minutes with John Frye.
