To my fellow pastors and ministers of the Gospel of God:
The ultimate goal of pastoral ministry and preacging is spelled out by Paul in this verse:
“My little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!”– Galatians 4:19
That Christ may be fully developed, nurtured, exalted, and honored in the lives of the people of God in your congregation.
Let the followers of Christ in your congregation know that this is your single and unnegotiable passion for them and toward their full spiritual maturity and full human flourishing in Christ Jesus.
