January 28, 2021 We share an incredible calling as ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The hope for this blog is for us to celebrate in sharing this calling together through our collective wisdom, experience, unique gifting, and ministry perspective. Each month we will post two blogs from pastors. If you would like to write for the blog please let us know as every pastor's input is of great value to the conversation. The blogs will be posted every two weeks [2x per month]. Our hope is that you will subscribe, interact with the various posts to engage in the conversation, and write a blog to initiate a conversation. We also hope this will be another means for us as pastors in SECC to continue growing in getting to know each other and appreciate this season of ministry we share together at this time in our territory. The various topics will include some of the following: 1. Valuable lesson(s) learned in ministry 2. Your story of coming to know/accept Christ 3. Your story of personal calling to pastoral ministry 4. The most important leadership lesson(s) learned 5. Victories and struggles in ministry 6. What your current self would tell your younger self about pastoral life & ministry 7. A book review and recommendation 8. Seasonal topics (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc…) 9. Resources you have found most helpful 10. Successes and failures in the journey of ministry Be watching for the first blog coming out from one of our own on February 1st! We'll be letting you know when each new blog is posted!
