The River Ministry Training Day: March 24, 2010 at The Summit Leadership Foundation

Mischele Hart and Marsha Grindstaff conducting a brainstorming session about The River.
The theme for the day was "Ministrying at The River: You are Called." After the welcome and prayer time, Pastor Louis Imsande started the morning off with "Ministers: Not Volunteers" and shared scripture from 1 Peter: 2:9 "But you are not like that, for you have been chosen by God himself- you are priests of the King, you are holy and pure, you are God's very own- all this so that you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into his womderful light." (Life Application). This was followed by "Better Understanding The Women We Serve" by River Director Stacy Larsen, "What is Your Calling?" by Annie Banaszak, River Staff and a brainstorming session "What More Can We Do?" lead by Mischele Hart and Marsha Grindstaff. We had 22 ministers in attendance and enjoyed a wonderful time of renewal, understanding, and fellowship. Thanks to The Summit Leadership Foundation for allowing us to use their facility.
