A Ministry Update! Preaching and Teaching and Editing, O My!

12 Jan

The Lord is so good! He is keeping me busy during my early days of retirement. After I was downsized from my teaching position at CIU, He provided a fourteen-month position as preaching pastor at Crossroads Fellowship Church in Augusta, Georgia.

After they called their next senior pastor, I began to wonder how the Lord would use me.  A church in New Jersey, Cedarcroft Bible Chapel, brought me up last week to do some ministry with them.  I preached both Sundays (New Year’s Eve and Jan. 7), gave an overview of the book of Acts for their mid-week Bible study, spoke at a men’s breakfast, surveyed I-III John for Sunday school, and consulted with the elders on a variety of subjects.  I’ll be finalizing a position paper on marriage, divorce, and remarriage for their consideration over the next month.

They’ve invited me to come back in April and I will speak on two consecutive Sundays (April 15 and 22), conduct two Sunday school classes, and lead a half-day seminar on preaching for area lay preachers.  I’ll use my Ten Specific Steps You Can Take to Make Your Sermons and Preaching Better! as well as a workbook for those men.

My larger projects are producing two online courses for Emmaus Bible College, editing a manuscript for a Scottish publisher, getting ready for my two messages for Biblical Eldership Resources in Rochester, NY, in March, and preparing for a three-week teaching ministry in Myanmar in August!  I’m not letting any moss grow under my feet!

I’m also open to conducting my “Theology Matters” conferences and have a brochure I would be glad to mail to you and your church for your consideration.

Again, I’m so grateful for the opportunities HE is giving me to serve Him.  Please lift me up in prayer, would you?

    Will you be with Kap Thang at the Southeast Asia Bible College in August? If so, make a plan to visit the school where Pam and Zama (missionaries served by CMML) manage. She would welcome a time for you to give her teachers some inservice training. It is a Christian school where 85% of the children come from Buddhist homes. As an educator, you would be pleased to see the impact the school is having in the community (Yangon). It was a pleasure to participate last Saturday morning at Cedarcroft – thank you for coming and thank you for the teaching on Col. 1 – I did share the notes with our elders!

    Joyfully, Phil

      Great to be with you, Phil, last Saturday. Thank you for sharing my thoughts on Col. 1 with the 5th Avenue elders!

      Yes, I will be with Kap Thang for my August visit. Would you be able to provide contact information for me for Pam and Zama so we can talk about possible training?

      Thanks, Brother.
      Larry
