For those interested, the 2011 Project 12 Bible/Discipleship intensive
at JPUSA in Chicago has launched our 10 month 3 trimester schedule
with the theme “Friends of Jesus”.
We’ve completed “The Gathering”, a ten-day retreat (“advance” really:)
at Cornerstone Farm which incorporates a lot of getting-to-know one
another time, worship, classes and play and are now moving through the
normal P12 schedule here in the inner city.
Curt, Wendi, Jon, Neil and Glenn brought teaching, worship and prayer
throughout the week. Caroline, Tyler, Brian, Ami and Dawn served and
brought great input on a number of levels including a mini-golf and other
fun social times as well as visits to the local Dairy Queen
For more on The Gathering including photos and my teaching there this
