Multiplying Hope in Ministry to Young Adults…

We at Church Doctor Ministries praise God for your prayers, your friendship and your financial support. We praise God for your partnership! We could not do this ministry without you. Please read this story from SEND Young Adult, Joshua.

JoshuaPWhen God is so near, as a friend so near, it is hard to see what is happening in the big picture. It becomes more day-to-day intimacy. Being with a friend, a natural response would be the desire to want to please that friend or know him more. In a relationship, there is no program or written code–it just simply is the nature of relationship. S.E.N.D. has been an incredible opportunity in offering an environment to foster the nature of relationship with Jesus through dates with God to build the relationship. It allows Him to really have a say as He speaks through the people I meet.

Multiplying Hope in Ministry to Pastors…

We at Church Doctor Ministries praise God for your prayers, your friendship and your financial support. We praise God for your partnership! We could not do this ministry without you. Please read this story from Pastor Larry of Greenfield, Indiana.

LarryGWhen our church split from its denomination over theological issues we suffered great conflict and loss. I was left with a major congregational “rebuilding project” in terms of spiritual health and numerical growth. I was personally confused about how best to “rebuild” or even if I should be the person to lead this new phase of the congregation’s history. I was seeking God’s guidance but was not getting a really sharp vision of the future.

I saw an ad for Church Doctor Ministries’ afternoon workshop for pastors and decided to attend. I have been to many church growth workshops and read many books on the subject. However, what I encountered with Church Doctor Ministries was a different perspective. They expressed optimism for the future of Christianity in America that I had not heard before. I could also tell that they had a heart for God. When I learned that they offer a Diagnostic Consultation, I became very interested. I shared the concept with my governing board and they were receptive. We knew we had to do some major work but were not confident in the “what” and “how” aspects of our planning. We were not afraid to “rock the boat” in terms of change, but wanted some confidence that the changes we proposed were backed by sound biblical reasoning and management theory.

Church Doctor Ministries’ assessment and recommendations were much welcomed and have provided new clarity, hope, and inspiration for the congregation (and my personal calling). We are excited about what God is doing here!
