note to our friends,
One of the most important missions of
our ministry has always been providing information, insight and support
to Pastors and leaders in Godís Church. Perhaps the most effective place
to accomplish this has been in the many Sunday School Conventions and
Christian Workers Conferences. Over the past twenty+ years, we have
traveled across the country several times each year to participate in
||I cannot possibly relate the
hundreds of encounters we have had with leaders from across the
spectrum of denominations who weíve had the opportunity to impact.
Through my interaction with pastors, deacons and elders, I am
humbled to understand just how my input in these conferences has
literally changed the direction and ministry of numerous local
churches. I do not take this lightly but just thank and glorify
God for the opportunities to be a workman in His vineyard. How
awesome to know that The Lord has used us to impart a fresh or
defining word to leadership on Spiritual Warfare, the Cults, Islam
So often, Iíve realized that Iíve
just been in the right place at the right time and have just carried out
the ministry God has called us to. The Holy Spirit is the director here.
However, we had to be there to make the connection, deliver the
ministry and sometimes challenge our brethren concerning the complacent
and often dangerous condition that we find the Church in during this
Making a difference in 2008
This year I have committed to
four such conferences nationwide. However, to make this happen we
will need to solicit extra help from our supporters and friends if we are
to continue making the ministry available at these conferences.
Sunday School and Christian Workers
conferences are a labor of love to us. We pay for our own travel, our
hotels, food and other expenses Ė all without any guarantee of
honorarium to even cover part of the costs.
|We have watched
sadly as several of the conferences around the country have
stopped operating for various reasons. Yet as one who has labored
in this field for these many years I can tell you that the need
for these non-denomination leadership events is perhaps greater
than ever. We leaders need to know that regardless of any
opposition we face or the temptations to yield to unbiblical
standards or the newest fads that we are not alone. For example,
few other settings allow me to preach frankly and without
reservation to so many pastors who may be
denominational liberalism, the Purpose Driven fad or the
increasingly heretical Emerging Church movement and in doing so
turn entire congregations back to complete reliance on Godís Word. The testimonies weíve
received tell the tale and speak of the need. Entire congregations
have been turned back to complete reliance on Godís Word. For this
reason alone, we simply must continue offering the ministry
at these conferences and conventions.
In the next 30 days or so, we need at
least $1500 extra for each of these four conferences I am
committed to minister in. This is a $6,000 need over and
above our normal expenses and budget. Besides this need, we
also must take care of some lingering expenses carried over from
Will you step up and help?
If just four people gave
$1500 the extra expenses for the conferences would be met.
Twelve gifts of $500 would meet the
need, etc. But every gift of any size will be gratefully accepted.
Praise the Lord!
Please just consider how your gift
may impact a pastor or an entire Church for the glory of God. I cannot
stress to you how great the need is to challenge and strengthen pastors
and church leaders in these increasingly perilous end days. Souls are at
stake and you can play a dynamic part that cannot be measured in money,
time or effort.
Thanks so much!
