HOST: Robert Hatfield

- SERMON: “Hannah: The Personfication of Ideal Motherhood” (1 Sam. 1-2)
- TOOL: 8 Tips for a Great Mission Trip by John Farber

- WISDOM: “The successful minister for longevity must have the HEART of a SERVANT and be zealous in doing both big things as well as small things that may not be mentioned in his job description. While his main work and purpose is to PREACH and TEACH the Gospel, he will find it helpful to his ministry to manifest the spirit of humility by being willing to serve wherever needed” (Joe Williams, “How to Stay at a Congregation for a Long Ministry” [PTP 2011])
