I realize that most of you do not live in the Seattle area but for those that do I would like to extend an invitation to join us for the first of MSA’s new Turbulent Times–Ready or Not! Conversation Series. We are planning to record the event so those of you who are not able to attend should still have access through the MSA website.

Phil Bontrager, the CEO of Sauder Manufacturing that produces furniture for hospitals, universities, and churches, has worked with churches and church agencies in the US, Europe, and Central America. As a consequence Phil stays abreast of both the changing global economy and the changing character of the global church.

Phil and Lori are active members at Zion Mennonite Church in Archbold, Ohio, and friends of MSA.
