- Theology of Ministry with Young People
Pray. Listen. Pray some more. Listen some more. It is important to learn to seek God’s discernment. It took me a long time to learn that. It also took me a long time to let go, and let a younger, less experienced person take the lead. God call us to prepare young people to lead, and to give them the reins of leadership. I follow a visioning process I learned from Bishop Felton E. May when I work with organizations. Discern the vision, and then identify the obstacles to the vision becoming real. And, finally, work to eliminate the obstacles. Everything done in the context of a Christ-centered ministry steeped in Wesley’s approach.
- How will connecting with me support your ministry?
40 years of communications/ministry experience.I communicate clearly and set an example for others with that. My strategic approach to ministry – not always the short term, but the long view. Trying to teach folks to look at the secondary and tertiary impacts that come from decisions and strategies. Unconditional compassion. I don’t keep score and teach people that keeping score does not serve anyone. Accountability yes, but keeping score is not accountability. Problem-solver. I have a well-earned reputation for being a problem-solver. My strategic approaches get results, and can us used to teach others. Believing in the power of prayer. With prayer, all things are possible. We have to take a theological, Wesleyan approach to ministry.
