Ichabod explores the Age of Apostasy, predicted in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, with an emphasis on UOJ, Church Growth, and Emergent Church heresies. The antidote to these poisons is trusting the efficacious Word in the Means of Grace. John 16:8. Most readers are WELS, LCMS, ELS, or ELCA. This blog also covers the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, and the mainline denominations.
The Glory Has Departed
Lutheran book boxes sent to two African seminaries -
WELS has an oversupply, and their rich supply can be your school carnivals and talent shows.
27, 2016 Pastor Spencer:
Outreach campaigns tend to be time consuming to prepare and
draining to implement. As a result, it (sic - the antecedent, campaigns, is plural) ends up on the back burner.
Our ministry partners
with you by handling the planning, training, and implementation of an outreach
campaign for your congregation.
it's making a difference.
Pastor (sic) are freed up to spend time with their
people, drinking beer and cheering for the Packers.
And WELS members are trained to do something they have always
wanted to do -- proclaim the gospel to a lost soul, such as the District President or their Love Letter pastor.
By utilizing a simple
methodology and approach, your members will be trained to know what to do and
say, then immediately be provided with a well-organized opportunity to put their
training into action. They can turn the parish into one more generic, vaguely Protestant church with a praise band and a soloist named Brunhilda.
Could you take a few
minutes to discover more about our ministry and see if it may be the right fit
to find out four benefits that WELS congregations are receiving
from launching an outreach campaign with our ministry. A. WELS will not foreclose your property this year. B. No one named Oelhafen or Ski will preach at your church. C. The Pack will win the Superbowl. D. Paul Kelm will finally retire and move to India with Larry Olson.
By doing so, I
will also share with you three important things we are learning from the
campaigns we have already launched this year. 1) It takes a lot of money. 2) Thrivent will pony up with a grant. 3) Look busy and everyone will be pleased.
One final note
has been a blessing to help new WELS churches launch their missions in Texas and
Idaho, plus assist established churches in Washington, Minnesota, California,
Texas, and Colorado. We are that good. Heute die Welt!
There is power in the proclamation of the gospel.
When your members receive specific training and learn how to overcome fears,
they become a valuable asset in all of your outreach activities. Turn your diaper-changing academy into a program of mass baptisms.
I hope I
have the opportunity to visit with you to learn more about your ministry, obtain some needed donations, and
answer any questions you may have about our campaigns.
