As we look toward the summer I want to give you a chance to check out our camp speaker. Her name is Jeniffer Dake (no I am not misspelling her name, it seems her parents wanted her to be unique). The first time we spoke she called on the phone and said, “Hey I am Jeniffer with the Nashville Speakers Bureau.” In my head I immediately thought salesperson and gave my standard response, “oh I am sorry I don’t have time to talk right now, maybe you can call the HS Minister Andy Jones…” She was a little taken aback and responded, “but I thought you wanted me to be your camp speaker this summer.” Alarm bells sounded in my head, “oh man, I have just spoke to the camp speaker like a old peddler…” and not knowing what else to do I schedule a time to talk the next day! Thankfully she just laughed when we spoke the following afternoon.
Normally we have a guy speaker, so someone may ask why a lady? Over the next couple of weeks I am going to use this article to look at the issue of women in the ministry… (Random: Yes, the pic is of Aaron.)
