There's ministry, and there's The Ministry. We always knew that. 

Now we're learning it again....

October 12, 2017—a Thursday—a network of peers, mentors and sages gather to tell stories, ask questions, and connect with others who are redeeming, reclaiming, and reframing the M word.

Marc Roland planted and pastored churches in the 1970s, followed by a long stretch teaching and working with at-risk youth. Today Marc pastors his flock four nights a week at Roland Wines in Longview, Washington. 

Over time, Marc came to prioritize learning over teaching. He writes: "I’m a big fan of learning. I spent twenty years in education and most of that time working with at-risk youth. What dawned on me after a few years in the classroom was that what most kids needed was a guide—someone who would listen to them in order to find out what motivated them. Before that, I spent too much time telling them what they needed to learn in order for them to be happy and successful. I believe everyone wants to learn innately, but natural curiosity is often killed by systems that are tailored to benefit the delivery system, not the individual."
