Our culture has recently accepted two beliefs previously seen as conflicting. Come to our June luncheons for a discussion of what caused this worldview shift, and how we should respond!
Are we preparing kids for a world that no longer exists? Norman takes information from the Barna Group “Gen Z” study and other sources to explain what today’s kids believe and how we can reach them with the truth.
We want to give a big thanks to Pastor Moore and First Assembly of God for hosting the event, and to Deb Baker and Amy Wagner for their willingness to cater the event and set the room!
What a perfect event! Our S.D. Elected Officials’ Lunch was hosted by Pastor Greg Blanc and his Calvary Chapel team prepared a perfect menu and a perfect venue for the fifty attendees of this luncheon.
Our Executive Director, Dale Bartscher did a great job touching a few legislative bases before turning the microphone over to our keynote speaker, the Honorable Jim Ryun. Ryun was the first high school athlete to run a mile in under four minutes. He went on to take the silver medal in the 1968 Summer Olympics in the 1,500 meter run. Jim also represented Kansas’s 2nd congressional district as a member of the United States House of Representatives from 1996-2007. Jim shared from his heart, the trials, difficulties, and victories of being politically engaged and doing so not from a party perspective but from a values perspective. The presentation by Mr. Ryun included a special treat as his wife, Ann stepped up to the mic and added her thoughts and point of view. It was an awesome day for FHA Action and all who were privileged to be there came away encouraged and energized.
Pastor Blanc, to you and your team, we extend a heartfelt “thank you” for all you did to make this event a success!
We will have a bunch of photos up soon on our Facebook page and we have one additional treat. Normally, Mr. Ryun does not permit video recording of his events, but he granted us permission to record this one. We have some post-production work to do on the video and we need to get Mr. Ryun’s approval once it is complete, but soon, we hope to be sharing this video with you, so stay tuned!
