As Yellowstone Theological Institute endeavors to equip a new generation of ministers to bring the love of Christ to our changing world, we also desire to be a resource for pastors serving right now.
As part of this ongoing aim to support local pastors, YTI teamed up with Gallatin Valley Love INC and Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service and Crematory to sponsor a Pastors’ Appreciation Luncheon for local ministers on Thursday, October 14. The event was hosted by E-Free Church in Bozeman.
In addition to lunch, attendees had opportunity for mutual encouragement and building new connections with one another. Rev. Jim Keena, YTI church relations director, also shared a brief word of encouragement.
YTI has hosted several pastors’ gatherings in the past, but we are especially grateful to work together with these partners in Bozeman for the October luncheon. It is a privilege to serve alongside leaders from our local faith community!
