One of the marks of our ministry has been our emphasis on reaching children.

I am contacted quite frequently by people who have served in one ministry and are now making plans to transition to a different one. Reasons vary and each situation is likely rather unique. However, generally speaking, I would suggest several things TO DO and several things NOT TO DO. I recently addressed the latter HERE. Today, I will address the first. So what do you do when you sense that God is moving you from one ministry to the next?

Over the last week or so I have blogged about “things” I would try to do if I were a pastor. Today, I want to add one more.

TheDaveYoung / July 9, 2016

A few days ago, I wrote a blog post and talked about some things I would do if I were a pastor. Most of them were things that I have seen other pastors do and with great success. One was offended (although they were anonymous in their expression), a few expressed further ideas, a few said thanks, and many said nothing at all. None of these are a critique of my pastor friends. I know that pastoring is hard and that often it is difficult to make changes, even if they are needed! However, as I travel from church to church, I have often thought about what I think I would do “IF” I were the pastor. In my last blog I wrote about five of them. Here are five more:

I preached my first revival meeting 29 years ago! I was only 17 and, apart from knowing that I was supposed to preach the Bible, I am pretty sure that I had no idea what I was doing. Some would probably say that I still don’t. I preached several revivals over those next few years, spent four years in an “Evangelism” major, traveled a few years to some 37 states as a College Representative, and finally embarked on what our movement calls “full-time” evangelism in the Fall of 1994. It has been an incredible journey and I have preached in all but 5 of these United States in literally hundreds of churches. I have also been able to preach in a handful of other countries as well! God has certainly been good to me.

Everywhere I go these days I am meeting people who are gravely concerned about the condition of Christianity in this generation.

TheDaveYoung / June 25, 2016

It is my contention that we need more praying that is fervent and earnest. Instead of following hours of news programs and scheduling more discussion forums and worrying in our hearts about the condition of our society, isn’t it time to pray like this? Instead of wasting hours every day reading the latest blogs of all the leadership gurus and “you can be a success like me” people, shouldn’t we learn how to pray like this? How do we do it? I offer three suggestions.

A pastor friend, and a personal hero of mine, recently celebrated his 40th year of preaching and pastoring! I love being around him and fellowshipping with him and hearing his stories about his ministry and family. In a recent revival campaign, he several times shared personal stories from his own “revival” experiences. He was saved in a revival! He dedicated his life to Christ in a revival. As a result of revival meetings, he made choices that has kept him on the right path all of these years. One of the “threads” that tied all of his stories together was fervent and earnest prayer.

2 Timothy 2
Part 5

Paul’s letter to his “son” Timothy is literally bursting with lessons and challenges for all of us, especially those of us who are in ministry. In 2 Timothy 2, he covers a plethora of areas and I have simplified them into five themes.
