Many ministries need more business disciplines in their operations to move them towards growth and greater impact. You have those business disciplines. Your God-given expertise and experiences have prepared you to help our presenting ministries in significant ways. The mission of The Barnabas Group Chicago is to connect marketplace leaders to ministries needing particular business discipline support.
On Tuesday, June 12, 8:30-11:00 am, we will host our second quarterly meeting of 2018. Please join us at The Evangelical Covenant Church.
Join us for a light breakfast and great fellowship from 8:30-11:00. We'll hear from Felicia Thompson, Adjunct Professor at Northern Seminary and Former Director of Local Missions, Christ Church of Oakbrook. She'll answer the question: How do Marketplace Leaders Work Effectively with Ministries - you won't want to miss it!
Please join us for a light breakfast and fellowship with other marketplace leaders, an inspiring talk from an expert leader, as well as a few short presentations from The Field School, Safe Families, and Breakthrough. These great organizations have brought us very specific opportunities for our community to get involved and make a difference.
Our speaker will be Felecia Thompson, an Adjunct Professor of Formation at Northern Seminary. Felecia received her Bachelor of Arts in sociology/psychology from DePaul University, a Master of Science in human services administration from Spertus College, and is receiving a Doctor of Ministry degree at Bakke Graduate University in Seattle.
Felecia’s teaching gifts have given her instructional roles at Moody Bible Institute, Trinity Christian College, and numerous conferences. Her administrative and leadership gifts have been utilized in executive roles with the DeVos Family Foundation’s Urban Leadership Initiative, the Family Care Network of Chicago. For most of the past 20 years, Felecia has directed community partnership programs for Trinity Christian College and then for World Vision, where she served as Executive Director of its Chicagoland operation for nearly three years. She currently functions as Director of Domestic Mission for Christ Church of Oak Brook in Chicago’s suburbs where she leads the congregation into national, regional, and local areas of service.
We've asked her to talk about how a marketplace leader can come alongside a ministry to share expert-level skills and resources without taking over or stepping on toes. Join us to learn from an expert in the non-profit field.
Also, please take a moment to think of who you can invite to attend with you. Helping our community grow in this way is one of the greatest things you can do to further our mission.
If you are a ministry leader, or if you know a local ministry leader, who can benefit from an engagement with The Barnabas Group, please complete the application to become a presenting ministry, and reach out to our team if we can answer any questions.
RSVP today to join us for an engaging speaker, light dinner, networking, and to have the opportunity to participate in a brainstorming session with your choice of presenter.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
