HELP FOR PASTORS:
We live in a broken world. "It’s a Jungle Out There" Each year, the administrative, legal, and regulatory challenges of ministry seem to grow more time-consuming and complex.
"Tide was high, I don't wanna knock my head on rocks."
THE CHALLENGE OF MINISTRY
- Getting the work of ministry done is always a challenge. The ability to motivate and engage others in the work to be done is a critical aspect of achieving your ministry goals. And, without able and energized volunteers, any church will grind to a halt. How to cultivate and nurture effective ministry in lives of those who are spiritually challenged is a task.
- The world in which we live has become increasingly complex and filled with laws affecting our ministries that we did not need to deal with in the past. Regardless of the state in which you minister, you are subject to “abuse reporting” rules of some type. The failure to comply can affect your ministry and subject you to personal fines or even incarceration.
THE STORMS OF LIFE
Storms in life, broken lives coming into our care, will bring out your belief in God. The challenge is to put our faith in a God who is in the boat with us. "Lord, do you care for us, or not." Mark 4:35-41. "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?" You are sleeping during our storm.
What do we really believe about God, what is your theology? It comes to light in a storm.
