Many of us don’t often think of the “Man of Sorrows” as also one of most joy-filled persons to ever walk the face of the earth, but He was. Hebrews 1:9 tells us that Jesus” loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy." The disciples in Psalm 126 give us understanding to this dichotomy of, “Those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy.” We learn that joy is not a requirement of Christian discipleship but it is always a consequence. Joy is something the world does not know; as C.S Lewis once said, “Joy is never in our power and pleasure is. I doubt whether anyone who has tasted joy would ever if both were in his power exchange it for all the pleasure in the world.” Sandy Swartzberg will leading us this Saturday morning as discover a truth that is only available to only someone who is disciple of Christ.
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 *
