Next Steps

The past few days I have received texts and phone calls from many people expressing care for us and asking about our next steps. Thank you. While it could be applied in different ways the following indicates my desire for what is next.

Objective:

To serve our Lord Jesus Christ and glorify his name by stewarding the ministry capacity that he has given to me in a local church with a vertical church ministry philosophy

Preaching and Teaching – 2 Timothy 4:2

  • Engaging in the regular preaching and teaching of God’s Word in a local church congregation and beyond

Multiplying – 2 Timothy 2:2

  • Brenda and I together investing in, equipping, encouraging, and mentoring church leaders, pastors and their wives
  • Working beyond a primary local congregation helping other churches reach their ministry capacity

Leading

  • Participating on a senior leadership team working collaboratively together and dependently on the Lord for the oversight and direction of ministry in the local church

All for the glory of God and so grateful to be able to serve the King.

 

New Beginnings

For the past 2½ years it has been a privilege to work for HBF in the training of Senior Pastors in church planting around the world. Brenda and I cherish the relationships we have with so many in various countries and we are thankful for the time we have enjoyed in Chicago working with an outstanding team of committed and gifted leaders.

The time has come for us to begin a new chapter of ministry. We are beginning the discovery process of looking forward to what God has for us next in vocational ministry. We will complete our work at HBC in Elgin on July 15, 2017.

We leave thankful and grateful for the opportunity to serve God and His church around the world. We are hopeful that we can continue in some way to help all of our churches and their efforts to plant church planting churches. Our prayer is that God will make all grace abound to you and between each other during this season of change.

In Christ and for Christ,

Earl and Brenda
