With the first winter snow still on the ground, I thought I would give everyone an update of some ministry opportunities for Jennifer and I over the next few months. God keeps opening doors for us to serve Him in a variety ways throughout His kingdom.
@Campbellsville University. Of course, I am teaching a full load this time including classes in Leading Small Groups, Children’s Ministry, and Gospel & Postmodernity. My Small Groups class includes 17 students who will each be leading a small group of their own. The potential is to see over 100 student discipled in a network of small groups based out of our class.
Jennifer is also teaching Women in Ministry this semester as an adjunct instructor. She has 22 in her class which is the most this class has ever had. She gets back to her Ph.D. course work in February.
@KyBaptist Imagine Conference. February 10-11, I will be one of the key note speakers at the 2nd Imagine Preschool and Children’s Ministry Conference at Parkway Bapt Church in Bardstown. Last year there was over 500 people in attendance from around the state.
@BCM Valentine’s Service. Jennifer and I get to share with the Bapt. Campus Ministry students this semester on biblical manhood and womenhood during their V-day worship service. This will be the first time I’ve been asked to speak to a BCM group since we’ve been back to CU. Very excited.
@Lowell Avenue Baptist Church. In March, I will be leading an one-day Bible Study Teacher training event at Lowell Ave. BC, a church here in Campbellsville. A great church led by Pastor Dave Walters and Assoc. Pastor Trent Creason.
@Lancaster Baptist Church. I continue serving as the interim pastor of LBC. We have agreed as a church to walk together in the 90 Day Vision which attempts to make an impact on every generation in Lancaster and Garrard Co. in the next 90 days (Jan. 8 till April 8). We are praying for over 600 in attendance on Easter weekend, which would be the largest attendance in more than 8 years. God is able to do abundantly more than we could think or ask (Eph. 3:20).
Finally, in March Jennifer and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary with a special trip. Our anniversary is actually on April 6, but that is on Good Friday. Not the best day to travel. So during spring break, we will take some time to thank God for 10 great years together and rekindle our relationship with a no-kids trip to a warm location.
