This year's School for Pastoral Ministry features Rudy Rasmus and Chris Momany.
Rudy Rasmus, known as Pastor Rudy to his congregation, is an emergent messenger and co-pastor with his wife Juanita at the St. John’s United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas. He is the author of the newly released book, Touch, Pressing Against the Wounds of a Broken World. He began the church in 1992 with only nine members and St. John’s has grown to more than 9,000 members—3,000 of the members are currently or were formerly homeless. The church is one of the most culturally diverse congregations in the country. The church is known for their infectious hope that God will change lives. Pastor Rudy co-founded the Bread of Life a non-profit organization providing a wide range of services for disadvantaged individuals. For information, visit www.pastorrudy.net
Chris Momany is chaplain and part-time professor of philosophy and religion at Adrian College. Chris is author of, "Doing Good: A Grace-Filled Approach to Holiness", and has pastored churches in New Jersey and Michigan. Chris is also an author and strong seeker of justice in the arena of human trafficking and modern slavery. Chris is a graduate of Adrian College, Princeton Theological Seminary and Drew University. Chris and Kim Momany live with their son in Michigan.
From our comfortable setting at the Kellogg Center on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, the SPM has intentionally placed high-quality continuing education in a natural environment conducive to renewal and restoration. SPM leadership hopes that all participants will find the walking trail, screened porches, babbling brook and outdoor patios superb for meaningful devotion and collegial fellowship.
