Book Club | The Gift of Disillusionment by Peter Greer & Chris Horst

Join us for our fall book club as read The Gift of Disillusionment by Peter Greer and Chris Horst. We’ll explore the idealism that often drives our desire to enter into ministry, and the obstacles that quickly force us to reshape our expectations. It’s easy to become discouraged if we don’t turn our false hope we started with into the enduring hope in God’s redemptive work. Gain encouragement through the study of the book of Jeremiah woven throughout stories of faithful Christian leaders from around the globe.

If you are on the verge of giving up or checking out, join this community to be reminded you are not alone. Being a part of the foster care community can often bring about challenges no one could anticipate, yet God’s presence can develop a hope that sustains even on our darkest days.
