Bonnie McLean Book Signing
Ever'man Cooperative Grocery & Cafe – Integrative Medicine: The Return of the Soul to Health Care is an introduction to the field of integrative medicine. Based on both her extensive research and personal experience as a practitioner and recipient of allopathic medicine, oriental medicine, functional medicine, energy medicine, and counseling, Dr. Bonnie McLean offers a user-friendly overview of integrative medicine with resources for further exploration by the reader. From childhood to her current practice in oriental medicine, Dr. McLean has spent her life immersed in medicine. Raised by a physician father and nurse mother, she spent the first twenty years of her adulthood as an RN. After witnessing what she calls a loss of soul in contemporary medicine, she spent the next thirty years in a search of the soul in medicine. She explored natural medicine, Chinese medicine, psychology, energy medicine, and shamanic healing. With the advent of integrative medicine, she strongly believes that the soul of medicine is returning. The best of both worlds (science of medical technology and the art of healing, contemporary knowledge and ancient wisdom, East and West) are beginning to work hand in hand under the umbrella of integrative medicine. Integrative medicine is the wave of the future!

222 Apprenticeship Launch 2018
Harbor Life Church – Good Afternoon Mighty Men & Women of God, Sunday January 21st is our Launch for 222 Apprenticeship. It was going to be Sunday the 14th, but schedule would not permit. “One Year One Focus” Invite family, friends, coworkers and acquaintances to your 222 Apprenticeship Launch on January 21st, 2018 at Harbor Life Church. If you have not completed your application please return it ASAP. 2T22 2-2-2 Timothy Apprenticeship 2 Timothy 2:2 “You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.” This is our heart at Harbor Life Church. Five basic steps to equip apprentices for leadership: 1. I do. You watch. We talk. 2. I do. You help. We talk. 3. You do. I help. We talk. 4. You do. I watch. We talk. 5. You do. Someone else watches. God has sent us some great men & women of God at HLC that is serious about the Lord’s work. Why is The Harbor Life Church launching this? Throughout Church history, the vibrancy of the Church has been tied to the strength of its leadership. Over the last two decades the tenure of ministers in North America has declined rapidly. This is due in part to seminary graduates who step into pastoral ministry prepared educationally but not personally or practically. Too often this results in unnecessary conflict that leads to short ministerial tenures. These short tenures have produced hurting people and stagnant churches. What is the Apprenticeship Program not? It’s not a way to hire part-time staff without paying them. Meaningful ministry responsibility is just one part of the development process. We created this program to equip people and send them out, not to bolster our staff. What role does a mentor play? Seminary can provide aspiring ministers with a strong theological education, but it doesn’t always provide mentors who watch them lead, coach them in the gospel, and love them as a brother in Christ. Theology isn’t the area in which most young ministers are deficient. Rather, most pastors struggle to root their identity Christ, with applying their theology to local church ministry and with finding genuine accountability. What’s the difference between discipleship & mentorship? In discipleship relationships, believers interact with one another or with a group of believers for the sake of growing in Christ-likeness. Structurally, this means people meet often (weekly) and are invested in each other’s lives. Every Christian should be in discipleship relationships. A mentor relationship is when a more mature believer intentionally and regularly invests in another believer for the purpose of developing that person spiritually, relationally, and in leadership. A mentor meets with his mentee less frequently (once a month) than in a discipleship relationship but more consistently than a pure coaching relationship. Mentor relationships are essential for aspiring ministers. How long is the program? The apprenticeship is a 1-2 year commitment. What are the different aspects of the 2-2-2 program? The program consists of three major aspects: intense pastoral training, meaningful ministry responsibility and intentional mentorship. How will apprentices be prepared for their next step? Each apprentice will meet monthly with the Apprenticeship Program director to talk specifically about ministry calling. The first three months will be spent exploring and clarifying calling, the next 6 months being equipped for that particular calling, and the final 3 months in future ministry planning. Our goal is to launch apprentices into their next stage of ministry. What should I expect at the end of my apprenticeship? You should expect to be well qualified to step into full time vocational ministry. That will look different for each apprentice. Apprentices will be well positioned to compete for full-time ministerial positions. The Apprenticeship Program is designed to equip you and send you out to where God is leading you to minister. We only ask for three things: Be (F.A.T.) F. Is for Faithful A. Is for Available T. Is for Teachable Who should apply? Anyone who feels called to vocational ministry and desires to be intentionally challenged in a gospel-saturated environment should apply. If you feel lead of the Lord to join this group of Apprentices, Please don't hesitate to reach out to one of our Pastors. Please, keep these men of God in your prayers as they learn to lead in God’s house.
