Ministry Update | May 20, 2008

Yesterday, our church hosted our annual Conference on the Church for God’s Glory. I was able to set up a display for the ministry at the conference, as well as give a short presentation to the 100+ people in attendance. I’m thankful for the opportunity to get exposure with so many pastors!

After the final service of the evening, a gentleman walked up to me and shared how excited he was about this ministry and how needed he thought it was. Right there on the spot he pledged to support our ministry for $50 per month! What an encouragement! I have also had two other individuals over the past two weeks pledge $100 monthly support. It is very encouraging to find individuals like this who are burdened about the state of worship in our churches and are willing to help support this ministry.

Please pray for me this weekend as I travel to Minnesota to speak at a church and present the ministry. On Monday and Tuesday, I will also be meeting with a group of like-minded, conservative pastors and will have a chance to speak and present the ministry to them as well.
