We have spent over three and a half decades in the ministry, very often being bi-vocational.
For 35 plus years, we have planted, restarted and pastored churches, all across this wonderful land of ours in the Lord Jesus Christ. Over these many years, we have experienced many of the highs and lows of ministry life as you can imagine. However, the Lord has always been ever faithful to continually lead us forward into His newer seasons of life and ministry.
Our Life Verse:
John 15:5 (ESV)
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” (Also See Phil 4:13)
Our Ministry Focus:
Colossians 2:2-3 (ESV)
“that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
Our Ministry Purpose:
That Christ in us the hope of Glory (Col 1:27) will become in Spirit and Truth, Christ through us Revealed in Glory!
Our Personal Hope: that this would one day be true of our life and ministry in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts 20:24 (ESV)
But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. (Also See Matt 25:21,23)
Acts 20:26-27 (ESV)
Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all of you, 27 for I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God.
