Because He lives
By Dan Ramsey
Well, we are reaching the end of our four-year run in leadership and ministry.
It has been a blessing from God to me and many others. As we begin with new leadership, let me encourage and challenge you to do a few things.
1. Set God-type goals to make disciples for Jesus Christ.
2. Continue to be involved in hands on-ministry opportunities such as providing devotional books and Bibles, feeding the hungry, supporting scouting ministries, engaging in Bible studies and accountability groups, developing leadership in the local church, supporting our pastors, supporting the commission, and utilizing the resource’s that are provided.
3. Pray and listen! And I mean pray hard and often. God speaks to us all of the time, but many times we don’t listen for that still small voice that comforts us and takes us down God’s path.
We have reached out to many small churches in the last few years and have learned that God has given us an extra portion of grace while celebrating the good news of ministry that is alive.
That being said, we still have a lot of work to do.
It is not time to retire. It is time to move on in our walk and celebrate our Risen Savior.
I pray for the new leadership in the NACP, as well as the UMM Foundation, and the GCUMM.
Remember, don’t give up! And I’ll see you down the road.
Because He Lives!
