13TIMMETRODCbwTogether in Mission – Ministry worth sharing.

Brilliant ideas light sparks. A slate of speakers will gather with a crowd of people interested in hearing best ideas for better following Jesus in the 21st century. Speakers for 15-20 slots in up-to 18 minute segments are being solicited. Architects, accountants, pastors, stay-at-home moms and dads, musicians, high school students…

Our next TIM event is not presently scheduled.
