Ministry Update | May 28, 2008
This past weekend I had the privilege of being with Pastor Greg Linscott and his Church, First Baptist Church of Marshall, MN. It was nice to meet his wonderful family and get to know them as well.
I spoke three times on Sunday. In the morning service I preached from Hebrews 12 on “Worship That is Acceptable to God,” followed by a Sunday School hour in which I attempted to answer the question “Why Do We Use Music in Worship?” from the Scriptures. After a delicious luncheon, we had an afternoon service in which I taught, “Preparation and Participation in the Worship Service” and had a lively and helpful Q&A session.
Pastor Linscott has been in Marshall for about 3 months now, and it was exciting to already see fruits of his ministry in the church.
Next week I’ll be at Camp Joy in Whitewater, WI for the week teaching at their annual Music and Leadership Camp. Please pray with me that the young people will be encouraged to use their musical talents for the Lord.
