I thought I’d share this. I was voted in as ministry leader for mission / evangelism at the annual general meeting of Pendle Hill Baptist Church earlier today. Unanimously apparently. I have been leading the mission / evangelism task force in an unofficial capacity since its (re)formation a few months ago. Now its official. This deeper local involvement is in line with my slow but sure shift from parachurch ministry to church ministry over the last year or so. Through the mission team we’re working to raise the missional temperature of the entire church and to help every ministry operate more missionally, beginning with the children’s ministry through which we have greatest contact with our community. I’d appreciate prayer for a positive impact moving forward into next year. Actually I’d appreciate it for Christmas too, as how missionally we approach the Christmas celebrations is the current thing we’re looking at.
