Adult Discipleship

From the World to Dayton: Global Christianity
in Our Congregation

Facilitator: Pastor Kent Berghuis
Sundays @
11:30am  /  1st Floor CHAPEL

March 6 – 27

During March we will highlight the stories of several people in our church who have fascinating international connections in their family backgrounds. Some of these people may be newer to some of us, and this will give us a chance to get to know one another better. Their insights into both international and American Christianity will enrich us as we consider the global nature of today’s world. Our presenters will be prepared to answer some questions as well as engage in conversation with the class. It’s a small world, after all, and we will all be better for knowing it from all angles!

March 6:   Okway Omot, from Ethiopia
March 13:  Tarun Joga, from India
March 20:  Timothy Mattackal, Indian-American
March 27:  Tathiane Sampaio Tadin Ayers, from Brazil
