    Brothers and Sisters,

    I wanted to announce that I have been called to take a pulpit starting in two weeks. It is a loving congregation that hungers for God's Word. It is a small congregation in a rural area with quite a few kids for its size. Please pray for me as this is my first full-time ministry. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated along with your prayers. I would love to hear from fellow pastors and deacons.

    In CHrist,

    UnTangled

    "Give then heaven!!!!!!!!"

    Funny Patrick. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the kind words everybody. I'm going to miss the SBC. Its an Independent Baptist Church. They are good people and I believe they desire to do God's will. I'm excited, yet humbled because I know that I am about to take on a big responsibility.

    Pray for me!

    In Christ,

    B

    Untangled,

    I will share some wise words given to me by an elderly pastor when I began pastoring almost 24 years ago. He said, "Preach the Word and love the people". I consider this advice precious and believe it to be our God called purpose. God has and is faithful. May He bless you as you serve Him----what a priviledge!!!!!!

    Unt...An old wise deacon gave me some key advice early in my ministry which when followed has reaped supernatural results.

    He said, "Don't forget to pray." There is a real temptation with a world to win and a church to lead and having youthful energy and strength to forget probably the most important prerequisite, prayer. Build your ministry in a ministry of prayer. [​IMG]

    That is good advice. It's really basic and that's what we need: Prayer! THe first thing I did when I was given the key to the church was go inside in the quiet and sat on the front row and prayed.
