In Nehemiah 8:10 Nehemiah tells his people, “Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength." If you are tired, discouraged, depressed and I said that to you what would you think? What would you do? Yet, the Holy Spirit inspired these truthful words. There is a direct link between strength and joy. You cannot have one without the other. The Bible encourages us to find our joy in the Lord. Our joy, which will lead to our strength, is in God Himself. There really is the “fullness of joy” in His presence. The key is to get in His presence to experience that joy. There are choices that even the most melancholy of us can choose. This Saturday Randy Frank will be leading us as we explore some of those choices. You will not leave tomorrow without a smile.
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*
