Ministry Team Commissioned

Father Jeff gathers St. Peter’s Ministry Team for commissioning. We have an entertaining recording of Father Jeff explaining and introducing the team from right to left. Click for a narrated whirlwind tour of  agnosticism, Gnosticism, the ministry of an abbess, the upcoming book: Lost Carson City,  Wine Walking to Cleveland, Godly play, and the role of the court jester in ministry.

God of all wisdom and knowledge, give Your blessing on all those who have agreed to serve on the ministry team of St. Peter’s. Give them guidance so all that they teach, all that they lead, all that they serve, that by word and example they may lead those who they work with to the knowledge and love of You though Jesus Christ our Lord.
