Leadership

Ministry Update

30 Apr , 2013  

It has been a little over a month since I moved to Shelbyville, Tennessee to accept the call (with much prayer & a step of faith) to serve as Student Ministries Pastor at Gateway Church. Everything here has been so surreal as to be welcomed with open arms, and the genuine love and support from the parents, leaders, students and church. I am completely overwhelmed at what the Lord has done so far since being here a month. We have seen students saved, set free and filled with the Holy Spirit. My second week here, we prayed for our entire congregation and  saw over 20 people received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

We are in a shifting as a church to go to the Next Level in what God want to do in us and through us. And I couldn’t have come at a better time as we move forward together as a church. I am thankful for the Student Ministry team the Lord is building here and for the vision that we have. As I sit here typing this blog, I am excited and expectant to see this vision and dream become reality in these wonderful young peoples lives. I cannot shake the scripture in Luke 8:40 and Habakkuk 3:2 (our vision/heart); that in our expectancy for Jesus, He would renew/revive the great deeds & his fame in our day… in our generation remembering mercy.

Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. + Luke 8:40

Lord, I have heard of your fame;    I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day,     in our time make them known;    in wrath remember mercy.+ Habakkuk 3:2

Here’s how you can pray:

  • That God will continue to build our SM team as we leaders surrender to the Holy Spirit and give our all to Jesus. Pray for our SM vision, identity and leaders/parents.
  • That God would continue to provide the resources to be able to do ministry.
  • That these young people would be completely marked by Jesus and in total abandonment live generously for Him. Pray that we would be unapologetic about growth… spiritual growth and numerical growth.
