District Vehicle For Sale

Our District Vehicle policy provides for replacement of our vehicles used by staff for travel on a regular basis, and for liquidation of the used vehicles at wholesale Kelly Blue Book values. Our vehicles are maintained according to manufacturers schedules. Though they are high mileage when liquidated, these are mostly highway miles.

Because we use Toyotas, it is believed about half the life of the vehicle is still available, but we do not want to operate them beyond their current mileage. The staff has the option of buying the vehicle from the district, making it available to open market, or trading it in on the replacement vehicle.

Around November 1, 2018, the current 2015 Toyota Highlander will be liquidated. As of 9/18/18 it has 154000 miles, and will be driven until sold, or traded in mid October. It Has new tires and a new windshield as of 9/3/18.

It has been averaging 24-27 MPG highway. City is not known, as it is driven primarily on highway.

Here is a pdf of the Window Sticker, with all the statistics on the vehicle: Toyota

Here is a pdf of the Kelly Blue Book pricing as of 8/3/2018 : KBB

Fall Summit 2018 – Leading With God’s Plan and Provision

Welcome to our Fall Training and Equipping Summit, 2018
Location:  Red Rocks Fellowship, Littleton
September 27

In Session 1 we will give attention to our ability to plan (Proverbs 16:1-9).  Good planning is a key component of good, responsible leadership; but do I simply assume that my plan is God’s plan?  As for my life and my ministry, do I want what God wants for me more than what I want for myself?  Do I make my plans with the desire that God’s plan will be accomplished?

In Session 2 we will explore what it takes to appropriate God’s perspective in the service we render and the leadership we provide (Proverbs 24:23-34).  The passage will guide us through God’s perspective on justice, priorities, retribution, and work—not a one of which is not part of everyday life in the church, especially in the life of one providing leadership.  Appropriating and living out God’s perspective in these four domains of life is critical to effective service and God-honoring leadership.

In Session 3 we will consider the challenge of being ever-mindful of God’s provision (Proverbs 30:1-9)—not only when things are going well, but when they are not.  In the closing session, we will focus on the sufficiency of God’s Word and the adequacy of God’s provision for effective, godly leadership.

Dr. Magary has served as an instructor in Bible at Trinity College and as a teaching assistant in Biblical Hebrew at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He also was a visiting instructor at Trinity for several years before assuming his present position.

Celebrate The Resurrection, Then Walk Where Jesus Walked

Celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord next Easter, then leave the following Sunday to walk the paths He walked and sail on the waters he traversed. Join me for this life changing experience as we tour Israel together. You will be joining some pastors and church leaders from the Rocky Mountain District.

My tours have a few features some other tours lack. As an experienced tour group leader, I am limiting the size of our group so I can have interaction with everyone on our tour, and so we will not be overcrowded as we visit each site in Israel. We will all be traveling on one coach, not multiple buses filled with scores of travelers. Each evening we will debrief with one another. Though we will see more than we are able to assimilate, covering all of Israel’s geography, we will stay in two centrally located four star hotels, so we are not moving every night to a new bedroom.

If you have never been to Israel, this tour will deepen and enrich your relationship with the Lord in a way you could never imagine. The dates are April 28 – May 7, 2019 and the cost is $3350 per person, double occupancy, if paid by check, or $3500 if paid by credit card. A $300 deposit secures your reservation
