Real Stories from SYMC #40

Bill Freund.

I don’t know how he pronounces his last name – but I pronounce it ‘friend.’  I’ve never seen Bill without a smile on his face.  He’s never spoken anything but encouragement to him (most definitely his spiritual gift.)  Last year, I had the privilege of meeting his wife, Jean, when they attended an SYMC Connect Group I was co-leading with my wife, Katie.  Jean shares his name and his gift!  I imagine if we lived closer to one another, our families would spend a lot of time hanging out together.

Bill loves people and Jesus.  And I’m so glad he loves me.  A friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Meet Bill when you register for SYMC.  Get to know him better on Facebook or through Twitter.

I've been in student ministry nearly 30 years…which generally just confirms how much I still don't know. Some days I'm the pizza-eating, over-responding, teaching-on-the-fly, desperate-for-volunteers, frustrated-with-co-workers youth leader that we all are. And sometimes…I knock it out of the park. I'm everywhere on social media that you are!
