    Happy February! As promised I have the wonderful opportunity to give you a recap of our year-end financial position... and what a glorious picture it is! To begin with I want to remind you that our P&L Budgeted Amount for 2023 was $-22,798.00. That’s right. We had a budget amount of just under $23,000 in the RED! However, our Actual Year to Date Net Revenue came in at $5,577.84. Yes, over $5,000 in the BLACK! What an amazing turn around!

    Our Net Revenue in 2023 was $26,313.31 OVER that of 2022! We ended the year with $53,117.42 in our total Chase checking account (with $15,898.68 earmarked for ESP) and $85,555.68 in our Fidelity Investment account. The Fidelity Unrealized Gain at year end stood at $3,403.33. Our Total Assets/Liabilities and Equity ended at $146,305.10.

    The Board voted in January to continue to hold our Annual Retreat at Unity Village the first week in October through 2026. Thus we will soon be sending in our third deposit reserving the Village for 2024, 2025 and 2026. And speaking of Retreat, the 2023 Retreat was $24,627.44 over the 2022 Retreat!

    Continuing to be conservative in our forecast, our 2024 Budget Net Operating Revenue stands at $-11,295.00. However, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if at the end of 2024 that figure is "in the black", too! Let’s do it!

    Thank you all for your continued support of ANTN. May we all be prosperous and blessed in 2024!

    ANTN Board Secretary & Membership Chair

    After graduating from Emerson Theological Institute, being ordained, and taking a breath. I had the thought, “now what?” What were my next steps, how do I learn to be an actual minister and where do I turn for help? I wanted to be a part of people that had already taken those steps and learn from them.

    After expressing this uncomfortable and unfamiliar territory with a dear friend and mentor, Martha Creek, she suggested that I look into ANTN.

    I wanted direction and “boots on the ground” training. And it was ANTN that provided that for me. They offered workshops, hands-on in person, Zoom and phone call support to me which helped me build the foundation, vision, and mission for my ministry.

    Further, I was introduced to hundreds of ANTN members at my first conference and from there I was being asked to guest speak locally in my area and by Zoom – all over the country. It was the launching pad for what is now “Brock Ford Life Ministries” with a focus on Outreach to the Disenfranchised, Struggling and Hurting souls within my reach.

    And, I am grateful to be the Associate Spiritual Leader at Unity of Richmond East Bay.

    So without a doubt I owe a huge thank you to ANTN, for all the open hearts welcoming me as family and supporting me in all that I do.

    That my friends and future ANTN members is why I want to be a part of ANTN and why I continue.

    It seems like every year, we say that “this year’s ANTN Retreat was the best ever.” But at the risk of repeating myself, the 2023 Retreat really was the best yet! Many of us are still in the afterglow, after an amazing week of inspiration, connection, music, reconnection, and just plain fun. My heartfelt thanks to the Retreat Team, Board of Directors, volunteers and everyone else involved in creating such an extraordinary experience.

    In addition to receiving the wisdom and insight of our Keynote and Power Talk presenters and musicians, Monday night we continued our tradition of giving back to the Kansas City community. We met the Executive Director and two students from The Sewing Labs, an inclusive and welcoming organization teaching the legacy of sewing for employment, entrepreneurship and enrichment. (Thanks to Rev. Dr. Martha Creek for the suggestion!)

    When their worlds came crashing down in the mid-2000’s Lonnie Vanderslice and Kelly Wilson pulled out their high school sewing machines and fell back on a skill they learned at an early age - sewing. With a great deal of work and creative planning, they ultimately built an award-winning soft furnishing manufacturing company in Kansas City named Weave Gotcha Covered! It's a social enterprise located in the urban core, which provides employment opportunities for economically challenged women.

    Believing others could use the power of a sewing machine to create economic freedom, they founded The Sewing Labs in 2016 as a 501(c)3.

    Thanks to your generosity, ANTN has donated $1,500 to The Sewing Labs.

    It’s not too early to begin making plans to attend next year’s Retreat! We’re back at Unity Village, October 7-11. Visit our website for more information and to enjoy early bird discounts!
