You may have heard that our band of merry men picked up a little gig this week. I wish I could tell you all the things that have happened behind the scenes – encouraging, frustrating, exciting, glorious, and affirming that God has allowed us this great opportunity. We are committed to putting on a Pastors Conference in […]
