Pastors Preaching Seminar featuring Pastor Bob Merrit of Eagle Brook Church

I'll be attending this event with some other local pastors. Thought I'd pass this opportunity on for those who might be interested. For those who might not know, I was Pastor Bob Merritt's teaching assistant for a couple of years at Bethel Seminary, but I would recommend this to you even if I wasn't! My wife and I attended Eagle Brook Church for a while shortly after we got married, and he is an incredibly gifted communicator.
