Passion for church planting

At 17 years of age, I knew that I desired to plant churches in Europe. Some 40 years have passed and that is still my greatest joy.

Many different skill-sets are required to reach out and adopt another culture - a few of which are flexibility, humor and a never-give-up attitude.

Within these pages you will find some of our stories, see some of the sites that we enjoy as we travel to encourage those in the task of planting churches in Europe, plus visit those that our church has sent out around the world. May you also be inspired to be passionate about serving Jesus and others.

Stewardship of health

We are stewards and not owners (1. Cor. 4:2; 1. Cor. 6:2) - one area of stewardship that is often overlooked is our physical health.

Here are some random thoughts about being a steward of our health.

It was the friends of Job there were far off in their assessment so we have to be very careful when we dress another's help these are for introspection not for judging another.

The creation is fallen, following the introduction of sin, and we await the perfection of our bodies. Until then we will constantly be dealing with the effects of sickness upon our bodies. The apostle apostle Paul prayed three times that God would take away the physical affliction from him God reminded him that there is a purpose behind everything and that his grace would be sufficient in every area of his life.

 It has been said: I'd rather burn out than rust out. Remember, in both cases the result is being out. Further ministry is procluded.

I've had two surgeries this year and currently am in a two-week stay at a special clinic and therefore my thoughts are about retanking - building up new energy and creativity for better and more effective service.

It interests me that church planters develop a plan that will sustain long term ministry and handle the stress that comes with the responsibilities.

Stay sharp out there.
