We are taking the next step in Social Media! We have had a facebook page for quite some time now but I never found the time or saw the value in using it much…that is until now! The era of Social Networking has become the catapult for both businesses and ministry support. The more you write the more you reach.
And so I begin. 4 HIS Ministry has been serving churches in need for over 7 years now in several areas of Ontario from Stayner (near Wasaga Beach) to Brantford, to Dresden (near Chatham) to Elora and on the small towns of Hepworth and Wiarton on the Bruce Peninsula.
Refreshing Pastors, caring for, praying with, encouraging and equipping them to revitalize their churches. Developing ministries, building and training their teams. Bringing with us tools for development, vision casting, healing ministry and outreach events.
Our heart is about second(or third or fourth…) chances. It is for the hurting church, the tired Pastor, the church in transition, people who are struggling to move forward, stuck in their wounds, youth who need a second chance. It is about giving support to those who can’t afford it.
You can pay for counseling, coaching, training, retreats and thousands of wonderful tools that are out there but chances are if you are a small church, in a small town with one Pastor, or you are a church who has been wounded, causing it to decline, a church who has sent members to birth a sister church or a church just starting out the money is not there for the tools, there are not enough people for the work and the pastor is probably exhausted from trying to do it all.
That is where we come in. It is our vision to see these churches become healthy, thriving bodies which can then reach out to the lost in their communities. With 7000 churches closing in the Us each year and 1700 Pastors leaving the ministry per month it is safe to say that churches are in crisis and the communities that are served by the smaller churches are being lost!
In order to provide care for these churches and Pastors so that they can function as the Hands and Feet of Christ we need support, prayer, encouragers and partners.
I will do my best to provide information and tools whenever I can on this blog and on our website that will help edify and build up the Church of Christ. I will keep you posted on where we are and how we are serving as well as share stories from the trenches. In turn will you take time to visit our website http://www.4hisministry.org See what we are about and what are vision is for expanding the span of care we give.
Thank you for joining with me on this new adventure, I can now add to my title “Blog Writer”.
