to look at our discipleship
As we began

delighted that my good friend Rod Woods is able to come down for the day
and share his enthusiasm with us. For 17 years he has been pastor of the
church in London that Janet and I were members of when I went forward
for ministry training back in 1990. We first met through Dunamis when he
travelled across from USA to lead the worship at the first series. He
was then called by the church.
Rod led a
Day Away for us back in 2002. He helps lead the FIC work in the UK and
is chair of trustees (which shows how much he believes in it all!). See

I do hope youíll be able to come along Ė bring some bits for lunch!
donít miss what should be an inspiring and challenging afternoon!
