On the afternoon of Thursday, December 20th, 2012, the Lord spoke to Rick Hensel. This is the message that he was given:
“Wherever you go, whatever you do, wherever you work, wherever I send you, you are to do two things: bring the Christian Community together in the Marketplace and, wherever you do that, establish a Net of Prayer underneath it.”
In obedience, the first quarterly Marketplace Ministry Luncheon took place on Friday, May 24th of 2013. The monthly marketplace luncheon continues to this day, meeting in the large conference room of SWICKtech in New Berlin.
Over the past five years, the connections to other marketplace ministry-minded people has resulted in the expansion of that initiative, with additional monthly Marketplace Ministry luncheons currently taking place in Appleton and Sheboygan.
Rick has a desire to create new locations hosting breakfasts and luncheons across the state of Wisconsin.
