Updates!

Wondering what eleven:28 has been up to in the first quarter of the year? Here are just a couple of hints!

  • From January 1-March 31, 2018, eleven:28 delivered 890 hours of spiritual direction.
    • These hours were given to directees in 8 states and 3 countries.
    • Included in these hours are youth ministers at the annual NCYM conference and the Florissant Church of Christ in Missouri.

 

 

 

  • During this first quarter, the board of directors has also been  at work taking a hard look at what structures will allow the ministry to continue to grow in the healthiest ways. In the coming days and weeks, eleven:28 will get to introduce you to some new board members and some very exciting plans for the future!

 

 

 

 

What about quarter 2 and beyond? Along with continuing individual spiritual direction, work with partnership churches, and covenant groups…

  • In April, board member Diane Packer, along with Rhesa, will help launch a new ministry to the spouses of ministers in a partnership with Hope Network.
  • In June, board member Chad Higgins will travel to New Zealand as part of a Come Before Winter group ministering to missionaries and ministers on the ground in New Zealand and Australia.
  • In July, new covenant group leaders will be meeting together for a training weekend in order to launch covenant groups all over the country.

Thank you for your prayers, your referrals, and your financial support! Your generosity makes the ministry possible.
