There are two ways that men can be involved to grow as a disciple of Jesus and grow in what it means to follow his example of leadership:
Black Eagle Night: The Black Eagle was the name of the Tavern that Martin Luther, and his associates frequented as they encouraged one another in the ministry of the word as God used them to restore the church to the centrality of the gospel–that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Martin Luther, in his irreverently witty way said this about how God used them:
I simply taught, preached, and wrote God’s Word; otherwise I did nothing. And then, while I slept, or drank Wittenberg beer with my Philip [Melanchthon] and my Amsdorf [Nicholaus von], the Word so greatly weakened the papacy that never a prince or emperor did such damage to it. I did nothing. The Word did it all.
For any men who want to let the word of God reform our own hearts and grow in the leadership qualities that Jesus demonstrated in his life and teaches in his word today, please join us. During the Fall of 2017 we are meeting in the Cellar at McMenamins Hotel Oregon. We are doing a study called “Unfiltered.” Click here if you want more information.
Leadership Base Camp is a time designed for existing and emerging leaders who want to grow in their own ministry leadership and grow in their ability to handle the word of God. This study isn’t for everyone, it is designed for existing and emerging leaders at Creekside. Base Camp, in addition to Black Eagle, addresses our character as men and our competency as leaders. Please contact Steve Mansour at our church office if you want information.
