From the Wesleyan Covenant Renewal Movement, a group of theologically conservative pastors and leaders in the North Georgia Conference:
The next meeting of the Wesleyan Covenant Renewal Movement will be [Tuesday morning] Feb. 24 at Norcross First UMC.
Dr. John Ed Mathison will speak on the state of the church in the aftermath of the 2008 General Conference, and he will address issues facing the renewal movement.
All are welcome to this open meeting, which will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude by 11:30 a.m. No reservations are required.
Norcross First is at 2500 Beaver Ruin Road in Norcross (Gwinnett County, north of Atlanta — map here).
The Wesleyan Covenant Renewal Movement was organized in 2004 to “promote the presence of leadership in the North Georgia Conference… committed to the renewal of historic Wesleyan standards and Biblical authority.”
John Ed Mathison “retired” last year following more than three decades as lead pastor of one of the UMC’s most vibrant churches — Frazer Memorial in Montgomery, Ala. He then launched John Ed Mathison Leadership Ministries, a platform for teaching the “best practices” he has learned from 44 years as a ministry leader.
Previous WCRM speakers include Dr. Jimmy Buskirk and Dr. Bill Bouknight.
In June 2006, Dr. Mathison spoke on the topic of leadership at the North Georgia Conference Laity Luncheon. Use the audio player below for streaming audio of that address (24 min.), or download an mp3 (6MB). (Note: Audio is slightly distorted at points.)
