And, I believe God often gives tremendous latitude in where we serve.He has lots of places where we can live out our calling.May the Lord bring to your body the right person at the right time. List your hobbies and any other areas of interest apart from ministry. Describe how you came into a relationship with Christ. Describe your call to the ministry and what motivates you to stay in ministry.
What is your position on the recent movement in churches to become "Seeker Sensitive" or "Seeker Driven"? After reading our doctrinal statement, what do you see as the most crucial points of doctrine a church should embrace?
