TOLEDO, Ohio—Emmanuel Baptist Church was blessed this September to have Dr. Bob Kellemen lead through Scriptures full of hope, promise, and truth. Kellemen is founder and CEO of RPM Ministries, an author, and a speaker.
His book God’s Healing for Life’s Losses: How to Find Hope When You’re Hurting was the basis of the seminar. He shared his own loss experiences, as well as had the attendees share with one another in small group sessions throughout the day. The sharing allowed each person a chance to open up about their own losses, answer some poignant questions from Kellemen’s notes, and bond with one another in Christian love. A Q&A at the end of the seminar allowed for deeper dialogue and more digging into Scripture, as well as personal testimonies given by those who felt led to share.
Emmanuel Baptist Church is committed to Biblical counseling to its community, and this seminar was just one of the ways the church is sharing the gospel. The church also offers free Biblical counseling to the community once a week.
Emmanuel Baptist Church not only wants to serve its own people and community, but also other churches. One of the ways is by providing sound Biblical teaching through training. Two such upcoming opportunities are a Renew Conference for women Nov. 4 and 5, and a marriage seminar with Paul Tripp Oct. 20 and 21, 2017.
