Why Sign Up to Serve?
Why sign up to serve?
by Tommy Hendricks, Family Pastor
I was single, adventurous, and was ready to travel and see where God would take me. I got the experience of a lifetime, skills I would use in ministry, and even met my wife. I have challenged each of my seven children to take trips and adventures to serve in various ways. There is no doubt that serving at home and abroad helps shape your worldview.
I knew that God had called me to minister and serve, and during these three years God not only provided but equipped me for the next season of my life. I have now served 25 years in the local church and those three years serving as a missionary gave me the experience and foundation I’m still building on today.
We are all challenged to serve as believers in Christ. Sometimes that could mean moving or taking a trip that will change our lives. But it could mean serving in our local church and making a difference right where we live. I challenge you to take a step of faith and find your place of service in the local church or even as a missionary. Whether you’re single or married, life is too short to miss out on the adventures that God has in store for us. Sign up today to serve in your Jerusalem, Judea, or even Waterloo, IA (uttermost parts of the Earth).
Are you ready to sign up? If you are already serving, thank you for sharing your gifts with the body.
