Buddy's educational background includes no formal theological training, but he does have a civil engineering background plus a Masters in Public Administration. He is a member of the American Scientific Affiliation, a network of Christians trained or working in the sciences, which in his case is loosely defined. The engineering background suffices as "scientific." He was honored to have an essay titled "God as Designer?" published in God and Nature magazine back in Spring 2018. His particular interests as a Christian are trying to retain connections with the younger generations who are leaving our churches, working to improve the rather strained relations between science and the evangelical faith, and pioneering a willingness to broaden his own faith as an example for those brave enough to consider looking outside the sometimes-narrow confines of the American evangelical subculture. Buddy has been married to Lori for nearly 41 years, has a daughter and son-in-law, two sons and a daughter-in-law, four grandchildren, two dogs, and several horses.
Dr. Jeff Greenberg is Emeritus Professor of Earth and Environmental Science from 33 years at Wheaton College, IL. Prior to that, he served Wisconsin as a state geologist. His earlier research interests were in Precambrian geological regions, especially their tectonic, petrologic, and geochemical characteristics. More recently, he has emphasized the role of young people as apprentice geoscientists, guided in global research and community outreach. He is Vice President of GEOLOGY IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST, Steering Committee member for The GLOBAL NETWORK FOR GEOSCIENCE AND SOCIETY, Senior Consulting Scientist (volunteer) for A Rocha-USA, and Coordinator for the stormwater pilot project, SWIRL in east-central Florida. He is unaffiliated with any particular Christian denomination.
Merry is a singer, content writer, blogger, a book marketer, and recovering worship leader.

Reentry Christian Fellowship is a small group alternative designed to bring hope to disaffected Christians who have been disappointed by the traditional American church. We emphasize both inreach and outreach, knowing that our relationship with Christ directly affects our ability to reach others with the gospel.
We view ourselves as a back-to-basics effort with no bells and whistles. We just seek to fellowship, worship, and support and mentor one another as we grow in the knowledge of God.
We are unbiased and welcome anyone who would like to join us to explore God’s Word and learn how to be citizens of the Kingdom. If you think this sounds like something you would like to experience, you can join us any Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm at 96 Readfield Rd. in Manchester, Maine.
