Creating Financial Freedom and Flexibility in your Life and Ministry


Most pastors and ministry leaders live with tight personal finances and a very “bare-bones” retirement plan.  Kevin Doell is a certified financial planner and former Saskatoon pastor, and will be focusing on some financial principles that will help with personal finances and retirement planning.  Kevin will also share some ideas that will help you counsel others for their financial health.  Kevin will not be soliciting business, nor will he be offering investment products.  He just wants to offer suggestions that may help with cash flow, money management and retirement planning.

There will be opportunities for Q&A, as well as some pointers that will help pastors take advantage of housing allowances, mileage reimbursement and other helpful suggestions.

We will also share more information about our upcoming 2018 Prayer Summit.

Date:  Tuesday, February 21 — 12:00 – 1:30

Location:  Holy Covenant Evangelical Orthodox Church, 1426 Alexandra Ave, Saskatoon, SK S7K 3B9


Cost:  $10 per person (unless you have paid in advance)

May 2016 Meeting & Elections Info

It is impossible to be spiritually mature while remaining  emotionally  immature.

Emotional Healthy SpiritualitySome who follow Christ are able to keep spiritual practices such as going to church & reading their Bible, but many struggle with the practical living out of the greatest commandments of loving God, your neighbor, and yourself well.

In order to do this, we must allow our emotions to be a part of our discipleship process.

Dallas and Leah Beutler, pastors of The Rock Church, have been on this transformative journey for the past 5 years. They have been learning how to not only “do” for God, but are also learning how to “be” with God, through a growing and loving union with Jesus Christ.  God has used the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Course and its materials to radically change their individual lives, marriage, family and ministry. At our next SEMF monthly meeting they will introduce some of the concepts in EHS as well as share stories from their experiences along this journey.

Here are the details for our May meeting….

  • THEME:                               Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
  • DATE/TIME:                        Tues. May 17th, 2016, 12noon – 1:30pm

  • Mark 12:28b-30(ESV) “Which commandment is the most important of all?” 29Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 

The most important command God ever gave us as His people was to simply love Him with all of our hearts, souls, minds & strength. In a word, we are called to worship Him. There’s just something about coming back to the heart of worship… together with other Christian leaders from throughout our community.

Our next opportunity to meet is a time of worship… a time to simply get away from your office and your busy schedule and spend some ‘times of refreshing’ in the presence of God and with other leaders in ministry representing the church in Saskatoon.

Here are the details for our March meeting….

  • THEME:                  Worshiping Together with Saskatoon’s Christian Leaders
  • DATE/TIME:            Tues. March 15th, 2016, 12noon – 1:30pm
  • LOCATION:             Courts of Praise Foursquare Gospel Church – 2333 Herman Avenue
  • COST:                     $10/person for food & fellowship
  • Please RSVP to:       semfellowship@gmail.com
    • If you are planning on coming, do not forget to RSVP, by Friday, March 11th. If you do RSVP, please make sure you are there!

God bless …
