One of my Pastor friends, Rev. Erick Johnson, and I were recently together at the Mission Redevelopers training. He said something to me that got stuck in my brain: Celebrate all the time. In redevelopment, people are worn out, and they need celebrations.
Another thing I learned in training was the importance of having short term goals that the congregation and pastor can work on together, especially at the beginning. The first five weeks of this call will be spent preparing for Bishop Wayne Miller to come on June 25 and preside at the installation. We're hoping to have a BIG party, invite everyone we know, raise $650 in donations to kick-start ministry, and fill up our church for a day. Will you join us? Leave us a prayer, blessing, or donation?
Let Calvary know that they are not alone in the Kingdom of God, and that others are praying, caring and rooting for them.
Pastor Jess is all about sharing the life-saving love of Jesus with the world. How she does it is up to the Holy Spirit.
