COURSE DESCRIPTION BELOW
We are so excited when churches and ministry leaders can come together for the purpose of building up Jesus’ Kingdom in our midst. Thats why we did a little jig when Pastor Joe Williquette and his church in Albany MN agreed to host our next Antioch School course…and we think the school’s best course….the “Acts Course” walking men and women through the book of Acts and rediscovering the mission of the church and power of the gospel. We will meet together every other Tue night, 6:30-8pm beginning Tue Feb 11th and ending the course Tue May 20th. You can also join us via google hangouts online!
It is an exciting time to see a regional collective of churches and ministry leaders come together. Hosting the course in Albany, MN will be a great location to see people come from all over Stearns County and central MN. Please pray for our regional collective of churches and ministry leaders, for unity in the gospel, and passion to advance His mission further into communities still in need of gospel-centered churches.
If you have any questions about this incredible opportunity in our region, call me (Jeff) at 320-760-5286.
We would love for you, or anyone else wanting this training, to join us in person or online!
