Chapter 3 in Ruth may seem a little strange to some of us today. It may even sound somewhat risky.. Yet, what is not strange is Ruth’s response to, Naomi “All that you say I will do”, because she knew Naomi and she trusted her. She believed she was looking out for her welfare and the Lord had put Naomi in her life. Some of the things Jesus tells us to do sound a little strange also. Think about turning the other cheek, loving your enemies, and blessed are the poor in spirit… The important question is, “do you trust Jesus enough to obey Him?”; even when all of the world says there is better and safer way? Do you trust that He is looking out for your welfare? Even Boaz said to Ruth, “I will do whatever you ask”. He trusted a women of righteousness because she trusted a God of righteousness. Are you ready to start trusting your Redeemer with everything?
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 *
