As the year of 2023 draws to a close, we at Church Doctor Ministries thank God for you, by name, as we sign this letter. We are so blessed to work with Christians like you who love Jesus and share our passion for effective churches that reach others with the Good News of God’s love.
This has been a year of many challenges for our nation and world. Yet, God does some of His best work in difficult times. However, the Lord doesn’t work in a vacuum. He touches lives through people like you and ministries like your church—and like Church Doctor Ministries.
We at Church Doctor Ministries thank God for an exciting and productive year. We have helped many Christians and churches become more effective in reaching people for Christ. We have met so many wonderful believers at conferences, in online conversations, and at workshops. We thank God that, after years marooned by COVID, we were able to lead another group to England to learn what God is doing there. We celebrate that two more members of our staff team have earned their doctorates. We are grateful for the multiplication of influence through three new published books: The Amazing Power of God Stories, A Nation Reclaims Respect, and Church Politics.
Speaking of books, more people are reading and enjoying the book An Apple a Day: A Daily Dose for Everyday Faith. It has turned out to be a great gift, and people seem to love the short, daily devotions. Praise God!
We thank God for your friendship, prayers, and service to God in and through your church. We are grateful for your commitment to help us encourage and direct congregations toward more fruitful ministries. This is a privilege. Thank you for sharing it with us!
