10:30am – 1:00pm

Location: 332 E Seminary Ave, Wheaton, IL 60187

Category: Pastors' Lunch | Coordinator: Brad Wetherell

Preaching pastors from the Chicago area are invited to our next chapter meeting on October 3, 2019. These meetings provide an opportunity to get to know like-minded pastors from our region, hear encouraging teaching, pray for the advance of the gospel in Chicago, and share a meal together.

If you’ve never doubted your calling to pastoral ministry, you must be new. For pastors to last, we need motivation more durable than sermon feedback, and more reliable than Monday morning blues. In our time together we'll consider 7 steps to persevere for a lifetime in ministry by examining the lives of pastors who endured many hardships for the sake of Jesus Christ.

Attendees will also receive a copy of Faithful Endurance: The Joy of Shepherding People for a Lifetime edited by Collin Hansen and Jeff Robinson Sr.
