Your first steps into the Ministry lay the foundation for your future ministry and set the course. It is important that these first steps are taken properly.
Many times, people are not sure how to go about their first steps into ministry, so instead spend their first few years in ministry making mistakes and going about things in a way that can cause them future problems. Rather than building bridges, they burn them.
Rarely does anyone train us how to go about the starting years of Ministry in a way that will lay a strong foundation and ensure future success. However, many are quick to judge and point fingers at the mistakes made by those younger and less experienced in ministry.
Learn vital lessons early on
Often, we learn later on how we could have done things better at the start. Wouldn’t it be better to learn those lessons first, so we could do it correctly from the start? It is unlikely that many people will get a second chance to take their first steps. Therefore, it is better to ensure that they are taken correctly the first time.
There can be a temptation to rush the earlier stages of ministry, in order to get where you want to be. However, making sure the first steps are done well ensures later success.
‘How to’ Guide on taking your first steps into Ministry
It seems like a guide on how to get into the Ministry would be useful. This could show us the wisdom of God in the earlier years of our Ministries and help us avoid mistakes. It would show us how to take the first steps to ensure maximum success from the start.
This module is that guide for anyone starting out in the ministry. The principles taught here will also greatly benefit anyone who is already in the ministry.
