Planning in Ministry Doesn’t Need To Be Boring 

Planning in ministry can mean a lot of different things. You may be planning an event, your calendar of events for the year, how to move forward in a new direction, and the list goes on. I am a planner so this part of ministry is a natural and necessary thing. It is hard to see how anyone can do ministry without serious planning, but serious planning doesn’t mean boring.   My Favorite Place To Begin When Planning In Ministry Have a dream session! Dream Sessions are a very effective …

Core Values Connect To Every Stage Of Getting A Ministry Started

When Beginning Your Ministry, You Need People, Passion, and Passionate People

In this blog series, our focus is about getting started in ministry; today, I want to talk about passionate people. I love Jesus and I love being in ministry.

If You Are Getting Started In Ministry, You Need A Mission Statement

Mission statements have been a part of my life since God called me and commissioned me. I discovered the need for a mission statement when I led the women’s ministry in my home church fourteen years ago. Eleven years ago I was in the beginning stages of developing OnFire Ministries. Once again I recognized the need for a mission statement because I saw the usefulness, guidance, and focus I found in taking this important step.   Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that …

You Need A Vision to Move Forward in Ministry

Vision is the ability to see. Our vision helps us to see what is directly in front of us as well as what is in the distance. We can enhance our vision by looking through binoculars. With binoculars, objects that are far away appear to be right in front of our eyes. When relating vision to ministry, vision speaks of the ability to see with eyes of faith.   This is part of a blog series about getting your ministry started.   Maybe you have been following God’s call in …

Prayer Should Be At Every Stage Of Our Calling In Ministry

Spending time in prayer is one of the most important and valuable goals we can accomplish in any area of life. Ministry and prayer always go hand in hand. I can’t imagine ministry apart from intentional, focused prayer. After fourteen years of following God’s call, I am more convinced than ever that prayer is the key component to ministry.   This blog series is about getting your ministry started, whether it is a church ministry, a ministry program, or a personal ministry.   In my last blog, God’s Calling, God’s Commission, and Getting …

God’s Calling, God’s Commission, and Getting Your Ministry Started

My Pastor’s message this morning was focused around the reality that we are all made for more. We are saved by God, called by God, for something bigger than ourselves and beyond ourselves.   Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. 2 Timothy 1:9   God has called each person to their own individual ministry in the body of Christ. That looks …

The Day God Called Me to Women’s Ministry

I will never forget the day God called me to women’s ministry. I understood that God was calling me. However, I had no idea what that meant for a thirty-seven year old woman with three daughters, a husband, a job, and a very busy life. The only thing I knew to do was pray that God would reveal His will. The cry of my heart was, “Send me; I will go.”     Three months went by and I heard nothing else from God. I decided not to tell anyone except my …

Why We Don’t Want to Live Without Self-Control

Woman without Self-control

A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls. Proverbs 25:28 (NLT) Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control. Proverbs 25:28 (NIV) Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls. Proverbs 25:28 (NKJV) Like a city that is broken into and without walls is a man who has not control over his spirit. Proverbs 25:28 (NASB) He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and …

Hard Work Should be a Labor of Love

Labor of Love

Labor of love defined might be hard work for the sake of love.   This past weekend was a beautiful celebration of love at my middle daughter’s wedding.

I can truly say that I delighted in doing the hard work. It was a blessing to be able to give the gift of a beautiful wedding to my daughter. Why because I love her …
