From Town to Town
Paul and Barnabas followed the same ministry strategy in all the towns they visited on their first missionary journey. They went to the Jewish synagogue and preached about Jesus, “encouraged and strengthened” new believers to continue following Jesus, appointed leaders in the new churches and trusted God to take care of the believers and churches. Paul and Barnabas’ strategy tells us churches should have strategies for ministry, too. So, what’s Northwood’s strategy for ministry? How do we help more people believe in Jesus and become more like him? Good question! Let’s talk about it to make sure we’re clear about it … and doing it.
