Tell us one brief story of how God is working in peoples’ lives through your ministry.
This year in addition to Spiritual Legacy Classes, I worked with people one on one interviewing them over a period of months and recording how they came to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and how that has changed their lives. I helped them remember the times when God had intervened on their behalf.
I was amazed at the change in them over the course of our visits. They took on a purposeful intentional outlook, as they focused on all of the things God had done for them. They were reminded and assured that they still had Kingdom work and value to the Lord as He continued to work through them.
List the specific goals you had for the past year and describe the degree to which they were reached
1) Faith Legacies
GOAL: Expanding the Spiritual Legacy Project within a large mega church which is very careful and slow in accepting new ministries.
RESULTS: I have begun introducing the Faith Legacy within FBCN I will be traveling with the Pastors wife and small group to spend a week training at the Billy Graham Leadership Training Center at THE COVE in Ashville NC. I was asked to teach again during the enricher program in the spring.
2) Discipleship and Evangelism:
GOAL: Build an accountability Group.
RESULTS: former Woman’s Group stopped meeting for the summer. I have decided not to start up again this year as it took a large chunk of my time and energy even when I delegated certain responsibilities.
GOAL: Develop a way to spread the Legacy Project vision to snowbirds in Florida for only 1-3 months in the winter.
RESULTS: Working with an editor and we are rewriting the textbook to stand alone or become a ministry for snowbirds to introduce in their home churches,
