I have been the pastor at Willow Creek Friends Church for nearly nine years. For the past six I have shared my sermons on this blog, and greatly appriciate you readership. We have Friends across North America and Europe and several readers in India and in places many would not expect.
This past month someone within our Meeting decided that we should expand our web presence. Willow Creek Friends Church is now on YouTube!
We are very aware that many are not able to attend meeting for worship on a Sunday so you can now listen and watch our weekly messages as you prepare for your personal times of reflection any day of the week.
Thanks again for all your support these past few years and we hope and pray that you life will be filled with the light of Christ.
I’m sure everyone wants to know who I am…well if you are viewing this page you do. I’m Jared Warner and I am a pastor or minister recorded in the Evangelical Friends Church Mid America Yearly Meeting. To give a short introduction to the EFC-MA, it is a group of evangelical minded Friends in the Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado. We are also a part of the larger group called Evangelical Friends International, which as the name implies is an international group of Evangelical Friends.
For many outside of the Friends or Quaker traditions you may ask what a recorded minister is: the short answer is that I have demistrated gifts of ministry that our Yearly Meeting has recorded in their minutes. To translate this into other terms I am an ordained pastor, but as Friends we believe that God ordaines and mankind can only record what God has already done.
More about myself: I have a degree in crop science from Fort Hays State University, and a masters degree in Christian ministry from Friends University. Both of these universities are in Kansas. I lived most of my life in Kansas on a farm in the north central area, some may say the north west. I currently live and minister in the Kansas City, MO area and am a pastor in a programed Friends Meeting called Willow Creek Friends Church.
