INVITATION to a PASTORS FRATERNAL
Mush Creek Baptist church –
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).
