OHM Leader Training Weekend in Sunny Phoenix, Az

Leader Training Weekend has long been a sought after and favorite event for those who have come to lead small groups at The Journey in Michigan.  Last year we opened the weekend up to local leaders to join us in Michigan and the response was overwhelmingly positive.  Because we desire to provide this special time of training and care to as many leaders as possible we are taking Leader Training Weekend “on the road”.  This year we will travel to three cities to bring Leader Training Weekend to local small group leaders across the country.  Every leader to attend a Leader Training Weekend will receive a newly revised Journey Guide.

The Story of The Ten Lepers

Luke 17 records the story of the ten lepers. On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee.  And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us.” When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to ...

Are You A Witness

Acts 1:8 “…you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” "To be a witness does not consist in engaging in propaganda, nor even in stirring people up, but in being a living mystery.  It means to live in such a way that one's life would not make sense if God did not exist."                                                                        Cardinal Emmanuel Suhard This feels inspiringly true to me.  It says that your life story and how you engage it matters and is the most compelling canvas for the message ...

BE EQUIPPED, FEEL CONNECTED, AND BE CARED FOR BY THE OHM TEAM
