INVITATION to a … PASTORS FRATERNAL
Mush Creek Baptist church --MAY 10,11
My dear brother servants in the ministry,
I have had a growing burden to get together for another time of 'refreshing'. We have had two Founders Fraternal meetings over the past two years, both were a blessing (both were filled with meaty doctrinal instruction... this one is planned to have a completely different flavor! Please come and fellowship with me and your fellow pastors at Mush Creek Baptist church -- MAY 10,11 (All men are more than welcome, but the emphasis is going to be on pastoral encouragement).
Bro. Ed. Lacy will be our guest speaker--setting the stage for discussion on Friday evening and Saturday morning. So, the emphasis is going to be on group 'dialogue' and I don't think I have to encourage anyone to come prepared, for I believe we seldom get an opportunity to share our hearts together before the Lord. [We will meet in the hall in circle format, so that everyone can participate]
This is an opportunity for you to invite a fellow pastor who needs encouragement. I remember how a dear brother of mine was so impacted by the first Founders Conference he went to--and the main reason was the 'genuineness of the love displayed among brothers'.
This is a 'Mens' only retreat. We will 'rough it' with some sleeping in the church Sunday school rooms if necessary (depending on response). In all probability there will be a bed for everyone (with the parsonage across the street, campers and a couple of homes near by--we can accommodate??? without anyone sleeping on the floor. If you have back problems etc. we will insure you have a good bed).
