We will Stand Against Satan

Wherever He Raises His Poisonous Head?

I have been serving in the pastoral ministry for almost 30 years.  Over the 30 years I have served six congregations – one mission start up, two mid-sized organizations, a large congregaton with a focus on outreach to the Asian Hmong community, and as head mission pastor of a congregation focused upon serving the Chinese community (unfortunately funding for my position came to an abrupt stop when the economy declined).  I am currently serving a mid-sized congregation.

Along with all work that a pastor regularly does two emphases have risen to the top of ministry – marriage enrichment and spiritual growth of the individual and congregation.

Marriage enrichment has risen to the top because too many marriages are facing huge challenges – challenges to joy, fullness and faith.  Jesus, the Bible, and the Christian church have much that will help.

Spiritual growth is also at the top my efforts.  I hope my observation is wrong but my fear is that many Christians are faced with shallow opportunities to strengthen their faith and apply it.  Jesus, the Bible, and the Christian church have much that will aid with Christion Growth.
