The Director will be working with a project manager and a small discernment group to oversee the conversations, meetings and prayer in the ReSource Future process. We are delighted to have such a strong and godly group working on this, and we shall add to the group as needed. Do please pray for them as they meet together every six weeks or so and as they work with the Trustees through to the end of the year. Here are some brief words of introduction.
