Project Re - Pastors, we have an opportunity for you to grow your ministry and yourself. It’s called PROJECT RE (Re-new; Re-vitalize; Re-start; Re-whatever). It is an 18 month program where you meet monthly with a small cohort of your peers, led by a pastor who has been through the program already. It follows a Teach-Reteach formula with qualified resource people you watch on video and then share with your local leaders. A huge benefit is the relationship of trust and love that you develop with our cohort members. If you are interested, please contact one of the following people: David Suitter, Mark Drinkwater, Peter Carter, or Bob McLaughlin.

 

Men’s Prayer Summit – for all men – clergy and lay – January 2-5, 2020 at Fair Haven Camp. Cost is $110 per person. For more information, contact Rev. Rick Gundberg at rbgundberg@live.com or 207-530-2961.
