“How”s Your AIM?” leadership training conference will be held at Bear Paw Camp April 1-3. This is a repeat of last year’s conference. So many pastors are struggling with how to get ministry allignment. How do we as “full timers” get on the same page with “part timers” in ministry. What are the real priorities for a discipleship making ministry and how do we evaluate? So we will be addressing some key questions, “Do we want to be a disciple making ministry?” “What does that look like?” “Are we really doing that now?” “How do we keep the main things the main things?” If you are wrestling with those issues or want to wrestle with those issues, come and join us for a joint 48 hour wrestling match!!!! If not all your leaders can come, come with those that can!

Eric and Pam Bearden have recently moved into their new home in Frenchtown, MT. Formerly residing in Colville, WA, the couple felt God’s call to the area to plant a new church, and moved to Missoula in July, 2015. Frenchtown, located 10 miles W of Missoula, is rapidly growing with new houses sprouting up on both the N and S sides of I-90.
The couple plan to start with a mid-week bible study; they chose their house based on its location in the golf course community, and because it has a large great room to facilitate ministry events.
Even as they begin this work, Eric and Pam are attending the nearby Alberton church where Eric often shares in pulpit ministry
Please be in prayer for the Beardens as they walk forward in faith in the gospel ministry.
