Presentation Announcement

This Friday, April 13, 2007, there will be a presentation by Jeff Streucker, at the Emmanual Christian Center.

Friday, April 13

7:00 p.m.

A special invitation to all our men and women in our community who are serving or have served in one of these capacities:
• Law Enforcement
• Military
• Firefighters

Jeff is a career Army Ranger who shares his story as a Christian man of faith living a life in the military. He played a significant role, while deployed in Somalia, in the incident that was portrayed in the book and movie “Black Hawk Down”. I’ve never heard him speak, but while on vacation I read his autobiography “The Road to Unafraid”

It was a very inspiring book that shared a testimonial of his faith journey ultimately ending in his ordination and new career as a military chaplain in the Army.

As I’ve explored the concept of spiritual fitness in the public safety professions, one of the things that keeps me interested in the ministry is the diversity of experiences and stories of people in the professions. Faith and beliefs are very personal, but often when we hear the stories other people tell, we have an opportunity to pay closer attention to our own stories. If Jeff’s story sounds interesting to you I suggest you take the time to go and listen to it, or read his book. Click here for more info on the event

I’m also very interested in hearing about other stories of faith and spiritual fitness that you have come across. If those stories fit our mission of “promoting spiritual fitness” I’d be happy to share them on this website.
