SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH EVENT
We had a great launch event on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at ministry partner, the Milwaukee Christian Center.
Guest speaker, Rebecca Anderson, pastor of Gilead Church and Bethany United Church of Christ, both in Chicago, opened our morning, in proper story-teller style, about her experiences as a pastor of an established church and a church planter — at the same time! She spoke about “translations” of the Gospel of Jesus Christ — not different Bible translations, but rather different understandings and expression of the gospel in the context of different communities.
