(2) a member of the Pod, or
(3) a room available for little or no charge
(say a private room in a restaurant if those attending have a meal).
Homes are fine (It is best if Pod Gatherings
do not occur in an existing church facility).
We often broadcast from the World Hub live to a
Pod Gathering via the internet (a computer & internet
connection is needed where the Gatherings occur [Contact us
for details], unless the restaurant or hotel meeting room is
a wireless computer "hot spot," it would not be suitable).
The Pod Facilitating Pastor simply provides:
acts as host,
sets out supplies sent from the World Hub or
procured locally, by them, (i.e. bread, grape juice, and cups used in communion, bulletins,
CD's etc.) and
forwards any offerings to the World Hub.
This person, in short, is a "point of
contact" for those attending and a local face for Sojourner's Fellowship.
You would, also:
attend internet training and support gatherings
for PFP's. These meetings are at established times on the internet and are 2-way in
nature, allowing for the exchange of information and support from the World Hub and other
PFP's. This brings into play integrated relationships with other PFP's.
Initially these internet gatherings are with
the new PFP's individually, with The Sojourner, Mrs. Sojourner or other trainer.
Praise and Worship music will be addressed
This will give you a general idea of what we
do. There are specifics which you will learn or ask about during training.
The blessings of our Lord on you and all that
is yours by blood, adoption, or assignment,

How do I get the "Weekly Bulletins" for
They are downloaded and printed off the
internet by the PFP or someone delegated to do it by the PFP or the World Hub.
What about supplies?
Some supplies are provided by the World Hub via
USPS (Snail mail), UPS, Internet, etc.
Who pays for the supplies?
If purchased locally, the cost is deducted from
the "Offering Basket" or via reimbursement from the World Hub.
