An Invitation from Pastor Jeff…

Greetings! I want to invite you to a special opportunity we have this summer, to learn about effective church leadership from one of my favorite pastors, Larry Osborne.

He’ll speak on being a “Sticky Church” with “Sticky Teams” (the titles of two of his books) on Friday, July 22nd at North Suburban Evangelical Free Church in Deerfield, Illinois.


There would be no charge for you to attend this one-day conference (9am-3pm), but we would ask you to be prepared to buy your own lunch and to help cover transportation expenses (pitch in for gas and tolls) if possible (if not, please come anyway!).

We plan to depart from the church at 6:15 a.m., and to return home after the session ends at 3 p.m.

I’d love to have you join us! Sign up here. Have questions? Let us know at

Thanks! Pastor Jeff
