The Brothers Keep Growing: The Newest and Ninth Chapter Just Formed in Texas

“The Men of Faith” is the newest Brothers of John the Steadfast chapter and it is in Plano, Texas. Their pastoral advisers are Rev. James Woelmer and Rev. Jacob Sutton at Faith Lutheran Church in Plano  and their lay chapter leader is Larry Everett. Welcome aboard gentleman. We are happy to have you join our efforts to promote and understand the Lutheran Confessions, support the liturgy, help grow new Lutheran media such as Issues, Etc. and to help men be better leaders in the parish and the home.

With this newest chapter we now have groups in almost all of the corners of the country. We have one in New York, Florida, Texas, and California. That covers every corner but the Northwest. BJS is alive and well however, in the great Northwest with members in Seattle and the surrounding region and someday I am sure, we will have a chapter there. Pastor Onken’s church in Marysville, Washington has already started doing some ground work for a chapter start-up.

For information on how to start a chapter go to our Organization Page on the website and for a free start-up kit e-mail Pastor Rossow at [email protected]

  1. Yes, I think BJS will definitely be having a strong presence in the NW. Efforts are underway toward getting a chapter going in Idaho as well.

    I’ll let them make their announcement for themselves when they are up and running, but, for now, I’m just going to leave a bit of cryptic inside baseball out here for the world and just say “Zap!” 😉
