As ever, Scoops are just info. We are not responsible for what you do with them. It’s the Yellow Pages, the Want Ads. We have neither time nor the manpower to visit or interview each congregation that we post info about. Thanks for reading, thanks for understanding, thanks for your patience, AND most of all, thanks for your participation, without it we’d have no info to share. Send updates, corrections, etc to TJI@TheJenkinsInstitute.com. And, may I just say, I love certain lines, they make me laugh or wonder why. That is why some of the stuff is included. AND, sometimes when I read the requirements I think…why??? :)
