We post what we know. We try to confirm anything we can. We depend on others to let us know about openings and opportunities. Sometimes we hold off because we can't confirm something or because we've been asked to wait or not publish a scoop. Some churches don't want the listing open (I never understand that one). If you see an omission let us know. If you see a mistake let us know that too: [contact-form to='TheJenkinsInstitute@gmail.com' subject='Scoops'][contact-field label='Name' type='name' required='1'/][contact-field label='Email' type='email' required='1'/][contact-field label='Website' type='url'/][contact-field label='Comment' type='textarea' required='1'/][/contact-form] So, let's get scooping:
