- — Carley Friesen (@Skypilot917)Thu, May 03 2012 07:57:54In a traditional congregation, people want the pastor to visit. Even when the deacons do it well. Same thing in missional? #funding2012
- — Carley Friesen (@Skypilot917)Thu, May 03 2012 07:56:17Isn't the call of ministry to get people to take the ministry? What of our full time work can we delegate, teach, hand off? #funding2012
