I am looking forward to an active spring season of ministry around Kentucky. Several churches have asked me to come and help with ministry development and participate in the preaching/teaching ministry of the church.
Here is my Spring 2010 ministry calendar:
Campbellsville Baptist Church Children’s Ministry (Jan. – March)
I am continuing to work with our home church in developing key strategies for their Children’s Ministry area (preschool through 6th grade). This will continue through March.
Parkway Baptist Church Pulpit Supply (January 3-31)
I have been invited to return to Parkway Baptist Church in Bardstown to preach for 5 consecutive Sundays in January. This is my second invitation to fill the pulpit during their pastor search process. Great church.
Columbia Baptist Church Sunday School Development (Feb. 28 – April 11)
Columbia Baptist Church has invited me to consult with their leadership for the fourth time. Maple Trail, our consulting firm, has done previous work in stewardship, personnel, constitution and by-laws. Now we have been asked to work with their adult Sunday school division. Work will be done to establish a new member class, start two new units, and teacher training.
Blackford/Breckinridge Baptist Association DiscipleNow Weekend (March 5-6)
I get to go back home to my old stompin’ grounds again in 2010. I have been asked to preach the two-association youth DiscipleNow weekend again this year. I also will be training youth leaders from the two counties in 4 workshops.
CU Holy Land Tour (March 16-25)
While not specifically a ministry event, I get the awesome opportunity to travel to the Holy Land. I will be joining 32 other travelers for a 10-day tour as part of the Campbellsville University School of Theology faculty.
I really appreciate all the churches and associations who have invited me to come. Please pray God’s work will be done in these churches and through these events.
