Disciples Men Corner
By Luis Mendez, Kansas Disciples Men Cooordinator
Greetings! My name is, Luis Mendez. I was born in Puerto Rico. When I was 11 months old, my mom, three brothers, and I moved to Gary, IN.
I was a senior in high school when I started feeling a call to ministry, but it wasn’t until I was in my 30’s when I answered the call as the Associate Pastor at River of Life Christian Church, Logansport, IN.
In 2001, I received a call asking me to consider moving to Kansas to be the minister at Fairview Christian Church now The Dock.
On Sept. 1, I accepted the call as Pastor at North Heights Christian Church and the Kansas Disciples Men Coordinator. I’m looking forward to working with the Men’s Cabinet and coming up with different ways to be “Connected and Equipped” to God and each other.
In September, the new officers for the Disciples Men’s Cabinet were accepted. The officers are:
- Lanny Norstrom, Galva FCC – President
- Kelly Jayne, Kingman Christian Church – Vice President
- Ken Schuette, Riverside CC, Wichita – Secretary
- John Sowers, Leavenworth FCC – Pastor Advisor
- Jeff Smitt, McPherson FCC – Past President
The cabinet will hold a retreat on Saturday, Oct. 10, to discuss future event planning. Keep us in your prayers; and many blessings to you.
Looking forward to next year, the Disciples Men Fall Retreat will be Sept. 24-25, 2021.
Feel free to contact me at email@example.com or call 316-461-8170. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
