My desire is to encourage and assist you as the pastor and shepherd of the flock in which God has entrusted you with. Together, as God has orchestrated, I believe that our offices will compliment one another and produce much fruit within the body of Christ.
After praying with and hearing from each pastor, I will, to the best of my abilities, prepare and preach the messages that the Lord lays upon my heart. Each place and each church is unique and will be handled accordingly with the help of the Lord.
I am under no compulsion to “produce” decisions and have no record to uphold. I will preach, pray and visit to the best of my ability and then trust that the Lord will give whatever increase He pleases. I am convinced of God’s call to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Being raised in church and “having a form of godliness but denying the power” is my testimony. I spent 21 years of my life participating in religious rituals and routines without having a true relationship with Jesus Christ. I believe that there are many who profess a relationship with Christ but in actuality are empty and unregenerate. I will call, as the Lord does for all to “examine themselves to see if they are in the faith.”
The invitations are clear and straight forward addressing all professing Christians as well as those who are contemplating the gospel for the first time.
Under no circumstances will I promote the offering. The sincere pastor who uses a full-time evangelist will realize the special needs of this calling and will lead the church to give a worthy offering. If the Lord has led you to invite me, He will lead you to know what I need to continue this work.
