Mark 8 is a wonderful chapter about not seeing; partially seeing; and really seeing. With Jesus, understanding is seeing, and faith and trust in Him leads to understanding. In this chapter all the disciples are still doubting God will supply their needs (their bread) and still not understanding who Jesus really is. Jesus then heals a blind man who sees partially at first and then fully. The blind man is an example of what they are going through. Jesus finally asks the disciples who do you think I really am? Peter has been hanging out with Jesus for years and now sees more clearly – He exclaims that, Yes, Jesus is the Messiah. How do you answer that question? And if you really believe that are you ready to live like you believe that? This Saturday Sandy Swartzberg will be leading us, as we seek a better understanding as what it means to be a disciple in God's Kingdom.
To join with other men from the North Shore of Milwaukee and beyond who choose to follow Jesus Christ in obedience to His call to serve Him, honor Him, learn of Him and share His message of grace with other men. FaithWalkers seeks to shape and hone men into men of spiritual influence.
A formal bible study is conducted each week that focuses on Biblical truth and how these truths may be applied to daily living in the market place. Men gather in large and small groups to interact around the studies that are presented by a lay member-leader.
Men from Faithwalkers volunteer to respond to specific prayer needs communicated through internet systems. A team of more than seventy men is committed to being able to receive electronic messages that seek prayer support around a specific request.
Faithwalkers is led by a board of laymen chaired by Greg Bennett. Their role is to determine the ministry goals, teaching topics and schedules, plan special events, and oversee all programs activities.
The Board is made up of the following 7 members:
- Greg Bennett
- Michael Casey
- Richard Cobb
- Chris Decker
- Stan Lind
- Sandy Swartzberg
- Stosh Tybinko
- Dennis Dern*
- Henry van Oudenaren *
