THINK IT OVER . . .

As You Read This . . .

Four new deacons have been elected to serve the church.  Serving for a three (3) year term are: 

Tim Baker, Jerry Haney, Mike Moubray and Rudy Richardson.  All four have prayerfully accepted the trust you have placed in them as a congregation.  I write about this because of my experiences in ministering alongside these you have chosen to serve.

 

Acts 6:3 Indicates . . .

Those who serve should be “of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom” (NKJV).  In my conversations with each of these men, I believe they all fit these qualifications.  I have been encouraged by their sense of humility in being chosen and their willingness to serve the Lord through Gordonsville Baptist Church.  All of these men have served before and proven themselves faithful.

 

I Would Like to Issue . . .

A challenge to the church to pray for these newly elected deacons who will join with:  Mike Beasley, Allen Brown, Pam Brushwood, Steve Brushwood, Charlie Fincham, Tyler Koneski, Terry Shaffer and Harvey Stoner.  Pray for these twelve men and women and myself as we seek to lead GBC forward, especially during this challenging time.  I believe the Lord brought this group together and that He will use them to accomplish His work—BUT . . . we need your prayers and help.

 

Every Christian . . .

Is called to serve and every place of service is important.  No work or service for the Kingdom is unimportant in the eyes of our Lord.  What He looks for in all of us is faithfulness.  As we are faithful in little things, He entrusts us with bigger things.  The more you open yourself up to Him the more He opens up to you!

 

Think It Over . . .

We all need each other.  I cannot do it all, nor can the deacons do it all.  We need each other to do all the work of the ministry at GBC.  The Pastor, Deacons and Saints (Philippians 1:1), make up the church and we are all necessary to make it work to the glory of God.
