Congrats to our first Leadership Development Class!
Bear Creek UMC’s first Leadership Development Class graduated on Monday, April 13. Since last September, these individuals have attended a monthly class, read books, and discussed a full range of topics, to better equip them to lead our congregation in reaching out to our community with the love of Jesus.
The class was a big commitment because our ministry is a big commitment. Please continue to pray for the leaders of Bear Creek as we venture into God’s future for us. Also, know that one of their assignments was to nominate individuals for future classes and you may be one.
Leadership Development Class 1 graduates are: Betsy Ayers, Bill Clark, Roger Clayton, Ed Conger, Joyce Evans, Becky French, Shelby Gardner, Christopher Gorman, Jeff Jones, Christine and Keith Kalmbach, Carmen Kelley, Judy and Randi Lanum, Shawn Lapina, Rob Meyer, Katie Odenthal, Amber Piercy, Julie Schweers, Nancy Vickers, Eric Waid, and Rick Wilson.
