GREAT LAKES PLANTING SUMMIT January 25-27

November 14, 2008

By now you have probably picked up on the upcoming planter connection in January.   Here are some details:

Location….Camp Geneva

Cost….Free…yes, you read that correctly and that is no reflection on the quality!

Child care….still working on that but likely for infants

Weather….Cold

Atmosphere….Warm

Presenters….Tom Nebel and Gary Rohrmayer.    So here is the skinny on these two guys….

Together Tom and Gary are authors of perhaps the most popular church planting book Church Planting Landmines.   Bring your copy for an autograph and then sell it on the black market to finance your upcoming budget shortfall!   They are also leaders of a worldwide planting movement called CONVERGE WORLDWIDE.   They are authors of over 5 planting books….have degrees from Fuller and other esteemed institutions that take your money….have worked up close with 100’s of church plants across the USA and, perhaps most importantly have first had experience in planting when they were rookies wet behind the ears.   In fact, rumor has it that Tom was the first church planter from Gary’s parent church in Wisconsin and that Gary’s church voted to pay him $50.00 per week as a show of their generous support.  Gulp.  Needless to say, since then they have barely tolerated one another.  But we paid them enough to come together for our retreat to pour some of their quirky humor and wisdom into us.  It’ll be fun.

You should have gotten an electronic brochure by now….but if not, email steitsma@rcagl.org and we will get that out…and then RSVP to the same person who will not take any money from you.   Really!   This event is free!
