1 Peter 4 was written during a time of trials, tribulations and persecutions, yet Peter tells these and all Christians, "do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on to you to test you as though something strange were happening to you" He is a wise shepherd who knows he is setting realistic expectations. Peter explains there are different kinds of suffering and gives us instruction how to live through your suffering to the Glory of God. Phil Markworth will be leading us as we explore an aspect of discipleship that most of us want to sweep under the rug. Is your attitude Christ's attitude; do you have the desire of the flesh or the will of God ? Peter asks hard questions, which demand thoughtful answers.
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 sha
pe 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 *
