Director's Update - Fall 2017

This month, I'm happy to welcome Steve Miller, Associate Pastor at The Lutheran Church of St. Andrew and a member of our Wellspring Men's Conference Planning Committee to share his thoughts in this space.   In Christ, Jotham

Dear Friends,

Every year since 2004, Time Magazine releases its list of one hundred most influential people. The list includes celebrities and politicians, philanthropists and scientists. Maybe you recognize some of the names on this list—people like Barack Obama, Pope Francis, and Steve Jobs.

And the demand for this issue of Time highlights the burning question that many of us ask: What makes a person influential? What is it about the work they do, the life they lead, and the outcomes they bring that impact those around them enough to be counted among the world's most influential people?

That's the gripping question that many readers of Time Magazine ask every April, and it's the same question that we'll explore at our next Wellspring conference on Saturday, October 7, 2017. Intended for men of all ages, we're calling this event "Men of God: Faith—Power—Influence." We will explore how men of God can draw deeply from their faith to exercise positive power and lasting influence.

For this event, we are pleased to welcome well-known and respected Pastor Victor Belton from Concordia College - New York and U.S. Congressman Larry Bucshon as keynote speakers. Breakout sessions will be led by a variety of Christian men and will include the following topics:

  • Becoming the Father God Called You to Be
  • Put Me In, Coach: Godly Influence Through Sports
  • Sandwich Generation: Financing the In-Between Years
  • Managing Transitions ... Good & Bad
  • Work, Family, God - Finding Balance
  • Investing in Marriage at Every Stage
  • When Daddy Worships: Bible Study on Family Leadership
  • Connecting with Others: The Five Love Languages for Guys
  • Love to Serve: Turning Your Passion/Hobby into Ministry
  • Money Matters: Planning for Education & Retirement

It's going to be a powerful event, and we hope you choose to join us! Click HERE to get more information and register TODAY!

In Christ,
