In John MacArthur's Twelve Ordinary Men, you'll discover that contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God's work. Look no further than the twelve disciples whose many weaknesses are forever preserved throughout the pages of the New Testament. Jesus chose ordinary men - fisherman, tax collectors, political zealots - and turned their weakness into strength, producing greatness from utter uselessness. Join MacArthur as he draws principles from Christ's careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today's modern disciple - you!
Classes will begin Thursday, Sept 6th 9:15am-11:15am in B215. Judy Robins will be facilitating.
