Chapter14 is an exciting chapter filled with surprises. They are only surprises because we generally do not expect what is to happen:
- A disciple anoints Jesus with a perfume worth a fortune rather than giving it to the poor
- Jesus prepares for His own last supper and there announces his soon to be betrayer; and then proceeds to speak of the wine as His blood and broken bread as His own body
- Jesus struggles with going to the cross and then submits to one He calls Abba
- One of His closest disciples who promises never to desert him denies him three times
- His own people and nation witness against Him and yet He boldly witnesses of Himself and Deity
None of the above is a surprise to God and all of the above is part of His divine plan. He makes all things work together for good because He is able and because He is good. Do you really believe that and can you really trust Him in everything He does and says? What do think of Gods plans and Gods ways?.
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 *
