This summer we have had a significant number of installations for pastors and teachers! These are exciting times because they mark the beginning of something real big – A NEW MINISTRY! The worker is new to the congregation/school and the congregation/school is new to the worker. As the school year starts the teacher is wondering about their first class of students and the students are wondering about their new teacher. The same is true for pastors and congregations.
How do you begin these new relationships? Start at the beginning – get to know one another – learn to pray with and for one another and remember you are beginning a spiritual journey together! God has called you to work together and He has promised that He will be with you in your new endeavors. Remember “love covers a multitude of sins” as we travel and work together. Be assured “…that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Php 1:6
Have a great NEW BEGINNING!
