If you are a leader, whether in your church, work, home, or community, then you know the value of a good leadership team. In order for a ship to steer its plotted course, everyone must be rowing in sync and in the same direction. In this case, I’m referring to deacons. We just cannot thank the Lord enough for the godly men He has placed in our church who have displayed courage and commitment to do what is right.
Our prayer is that God will call one of these men to pastor this work. Toward that end, I (James) will begin to teach a homiletics course on Sunday nights during our discipleship time. The goal is that each of the men will be able to prepare a Bible message and will become comfortable speaking from the pulpit. Pray that God would soon show us who He would have to fill the role as national pastor.
An enormous THANK YOU to Temple Baptist Church in Dade City, Florida for their overwhelming gift toward the property fund this month. Praise God for each of our supporters who have given a total of over $31,700 so far! Each step toward the goal leads to more opportunities for finalizing the purchase. Once we have an additional $30,000, we would like to begin negotiations again with the property owners. Please keep praying!
