Tomorrow (Tuesday, Sept. 6) begins the second year of the pastoral apprentice program that I have started at our church, a program whose goal is to help prepare men to serve Christ’s church throughout the world. For the next ten months I will participate in the task of leading a handful of young men through a program of reading, writing, discussing, praying, preaching, teaching, and serving our church in various ways.
Please pray for the Lord’s blessings upon our apprentices: Bob, Brody, John, and Keiler. Please pray as well for the role of our elders in this task: Lee, Tom, Nathan, and Ray. And pray for me. We have seen the hand of God at work in bringing this ministry into existence, and we strongly desire his blessing upon it.
