TODAY is our May Gathering on Pornography 

Today May 14th, our Grace Leaders Network gathering will spend some time focusing on pornography, especially on how to help those we are leading (and ourselves) have hope there is to see change and restoration in this area.

Our guest speaker will be Jerry Davelaar (MA, M.Div.), a member of Grace Community Church of Seal Beach who works in private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Jerry spent 15 years as an associate and senior pastor prior to returning to his work as a therapist. He has been married to Jean for over 40 years and they have three married children and five grandchildren. You can read more about Jerry here

We will also have time to fellowship, pray and some personal testimonies from other leaders in our region (including Chuck Kirtz an Elder at Los Altos Grace Church)! We hope to see you next week!

10AM TO NOON
AT GRACE COMMUNITY CHURCH

Our Network wants to get behind providing opportunities for our regional leaders to connect with other leaders in their sphere of ministry. Our Fellowship has been doing this type of thing with its annual Access Conferences the last couple of years. Some that we have outlined are:

  • Spanish-speaking leaders  
  • Worship leaders 
  • Children’s ministry leaders - baby thru elem. 
  • Youth ministry leaders - middle & high school ministry
  • Church Administration leaders - office managers & admin leaders
  • Christian School leaders - (administrators, teachers)
  • Women’s Ministry leaders 

If you are interested in connecting with a cohort of leaders in your ministry sphere, please contact Shepherding Advocate Bob Wriedt about your interest!
