In chapter 20 of Acts we see Paul giving a sermon where a young man falls from a window while Paul is preaching. Paul immediately heals the young man and returns to his message. It seems nothing keeps Paul from his mission. He does not get derailed. He then gives a group of elders a farewell message before he embarks on his final trip to Jerusalem. His heart is filled with love and kindness and tears for those he will not see again during his lifetime on Earth. He leaves them with an exhortation to continue in the faith and the propagation of the Gospel – he calls them to action, despite the resistance and obstacles he says will come upon them. Most of us need that same to call to action as the cares of this world keep us from mission of Heaven. Bruce Brunner will be encouraging us this Saturday and calling us all to a recommitment of our faith.
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 members:
- Greg Bennett
- Michael Casey
- Richard Cobb
- Chris Decker
- Dan Fischer
- Stan Lind
- Sandy Swartzberg
- Tadd Trier
- Bruce Brunner
- Dennis Dern*
- Henry van Oudenaren *
