MIKE’S PICKS: RESOURCES FOR MINISTRY

Mike Hess, GARBC national representative, shares the following helpful resources for ministry.

  • My article on the cult of personality leadership and thoughts on The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill podcast
  • A recent article I wrote on why the curriculum you choose for your church is a shepherding issue
  • An excellent article on how charismatic theology has made its way into much of the music we sing
  • A tremendous article on how you can be praying for Afghan pastors during this tragic Taliban takeover
  • An article on something we often overlook: obedience in the small things can have big consequences

GARBC CHRISTIAN CHARACTER SCHOLARSHIP

Do high school seniors attend your church? What better way to prepare them for the future than by equipping them with a solid college education from a Christian worldview. Encourage seniors (those graduating from high school during the 2021–22 school year) at your church to apply for the GARBC Christian Character Scholarship and to attend a participating college. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, November 30.
