Who are you and what is your ministry?

Recommended Posts

My name's Lexy. I just got saved this past year and God has called me to be a preacher. I'm not in any partcular full time ministry yet, but I'm working a lot at the church I go to now (North Gainesville Baptist Church www.ngbcfl.org) and my pastor has given me many opportunies to "get my feet wet" in the ministry, such as leading music, bible studies, devotions, hospital visits (just generally sticking by him when he's doing all that "preacher stuff" between church services! :D ), and I've even been allowed to preach a Wednesday night service. Throughout the course of this past year (and ESPECIALLY that wednesday night!) the Lord really confirmed the call to preach on my life and now I have a genuine peace that it's what He wants me to do!

P.S. Bro. Matt said I could join :frog

P.S.S. Sorry, I've never been able to use a childish remark like that! lol j/k

My name is Greg Schneck, married 26 years, two sons college age. Saved in 1984, Associates Bible Degree in 88, Preached as a lay preacher (small church of 30) 90-92. I have filled pulpits and etc. since that time.

Was called to full time ministry last year. I'm currently seeking the church God has called me to pastor. I don't know where it is yet but HE does!

I am IFB, KJV by conviction, and I oppose CCM, Willow Creek, The Warren method, etc. Of course, this stand makes finding a church extremely difficult. Church planting is also an option.

My heart aches as I see church after church going the "new" way....

My heart aches as I see no leadership in churches. Just today I had a followup call with a church I had been talking to. My resume was to go before the church last night. The result?..... Two ladies in the church said I couldn't candidate due to my stand on the KJV. So I was politely turned away.....

My resume may be seen at http://greg.thinkbible.org

I might also ask that you take a look at one of my other sites:
http://www.needpastor.com

We have good men of God who need to find a church! Let help!

I count it privilege to be a part of this group. Thank You.

Welcome Brother, glad you found us. I suppose I'm a lay pastor, but I never rightly think of it that way being as God has taught me much throughout the years in attending church services, learning from teachers in Bible study classes, and pastors proclaiming the Word.

One of my former pastors came to me one Sunday and inexpertly asked me, how would you like it if I taught you a course on the Bible one on one, we will meet one night each week and have a class. Of course I said yes very quickly, what a great opportunity for a country boy who lives in a rural area. This lasted 2 years. That was back in the mid 80's. I often wonder why he came to me and asked about that, did he know something I didn't? Or maybe God just led him to do it.

But it was not till sometime in mid 96 that I felt God calling me to preach. When this happened I had to do a bit of study, that is make sure Baptist were correct, and be sure this was God's will for me. After being sure, in May 97 I surrendered to the Lord to preach the Gospel and my church license me to preach.

Which during the time that I surrendered to the Lord and I was ordained I did attend a Bible course at a local church, which during the 2nd semester I had to have some major neck surgery, but managed to stay in it, during the 3rd semester I again had to have another neck surgery, this time it hit me a bit harder and I was unable to stay in the course.

From the time I surrendered to preach, I preached in many Baptist churches around our area. February 2001 I was called and asked to preach at the church I'm now pastor. Shortly after they called me to be their pastor and I accepted and was ordained. So far they have not tried to run me off. It's a small country church in rural Arkansas.

I remember once, my pastor told me, Jerry don't give up, a church is going to call you to be their pastor, I can just feel it.

I remember replying to him, well I don't know, but if God just wants me to fill in at different churches that is just fine with me, if He calls me to a church, that to will be find with me, in the mean time I'm just going to take it one day at a time and let Him take care of the future. I think maybe he though I was getting a bit depressed about it, but I was not, I was really enjoying that time period and still learning so much that one day would come in very useable.

Oh, I was saved way back in 1961 just before my 15th birthday. Now that makes me feel old for some reason!

Again welcome, and just let the Lord take care of it, and everything will work out right good.

This is us: http://www.senzfamily.com


We are currently (as of this week) beginning deputation seeking short term missions support while planting a church in Northwestern Pennsylvania. The town we are going to doesn't have ANY baptist witness... (not even a liberal one). The area of NW Pa is strongly methodists. In the town that we are going to (Youngsville, Pa) there are several methodist churches, including the Free Methodists, United Methodists and Primitive Methodists... (and you thought only Baptists had this problem).

The above website isn't completely done yet, but it should give you an idea of who we are and what we believe.

I need to update. :roll

Some of you may have heard from my wife already, but here goes anyway.

After ten years, first as assistant and then as senior pastor, at Lighthouse Baptist Church, Fremantle Western Australia, we have merged with another IFB about 25 mins south, in a place called Rockingham.

The Pastor at Faith Baptist Church is getting tired and feels like he needs to back down a bit, so he has asked me to take over.
After much prayer, fasting, couselling with Pastors I know, and talking it over with the few people at Lighthouse, we have decided to go. Most, if not all the people from Lighthouse will come along as well.
Combined we just about fill their small building, and the "new" church is getting along just fine.
All are encouraged by it, and the Pastor will stay on to help me out when I take over in the new year.

So the invivte to Lighthouse is off, but if you do ever make it over here, Faith will be a welcoming temporary church home.

Dave.

Tim Fisher
Assistant Pastor of Elkhorn Baptist Church, Baker City Oregon

Grew up on a cattle ranch then became a Deputy Sheriff at age 22. Retired from Law Enforcement after 17 years in Nov 2007 (Medical issues with birth defects to my legs and back injury). Like Bro Harrison was called many unrepeatable things :frog

Im praying with my brother in law (who is also a Pastor) about starting a Church together.

Im also working on a book about being a fundamental bible believeing Christian in the field of law enforcement. The idea is to encourage the saved peace officers and witness to the lost ones as well as minister to the families of peace officers. I pray I can get it published. My goal is to have it finished by this fall. :bonK:

Greg Schneck, Pastor of Montelores Baptist Church, Lewis CO (SW Colorado in the 4 corners area). I've been here for 7 months (since Dec 7th, 2008) and there are some challenges here.

The church started as an in home Bible study years ago. Sadly, they have never had a pastor who preached the whole counsel of God. That has presented some challenges. They are also older (we've had 3 funerals already) and set in their ways. Getting a youth program going also has it's problems.

These people are some of the friendliest I've ever come across and they will do anything for you. They just need some teaching from the Word (sin, responsibility, their walk as a child of God, soul winning, etc).

This is a historic area (Mesa Verde Nat'l Park is just a few miles away) and Indian (opps... Native American) reservations are close by. When we go to WalMart about half the customers are Native American.

Very interesting place. Especially since we came here from the east coast of North Carolina. "From the coast to the high desert."
