If you've been around OCF long enough, then you've no doubt heard about the importance that OCF places on small group fellowships—after all, fellowship is one of our spiritual pillars and it's even in our name.
Well, today you're going to hear the story of Joshua and Lindsey Bowen, both captains in the Army. And, while their story contains a few themes, such as mentoring, leadership, and spiritual growth, the one common thread throughout their story is the small group fellowship and the importance that fellowship has played in their lives...going all the way back to when they first met.
Josh is an Army engineer officer, who graduated from West Point in 2010 and served as a combat engineer at Fort Bragg and Fort Carson. His wife, Lindsey, is a medical service corps officer and currently a company commander. She graduated from Baylor University out of the ROTC program back in 2014.
In this episode I also mentioned a couple of resources from OCF. First, if you're new to OCF or in case you didn't know, we have an online directory to help you find a small group or an OCF contact in your area. Just point your browser to ocfusa.org/directory.
And for our small group leaders, or maybe if you're thinking about one day becoming a small group leader, be sure to download our popular booklet called "Leading Effective Small Groups."
