It is my delight to introduce our very first blog post, ushering in a new era of connection, and growth within our Section. This blog, tailored exclusively for you, will serve as a source of enlightenment as we navigate the adversity, we all face today in our spiritual journey.

As we embark on this venture, we want to remind you of the upcoming Issachar Minister Training on Thursday, August 31 at 7:00 PM. Prepare yourselves for a transformative experience.

John C. Maxwell, a renowned Christian author and leadership expert, once said, “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” This sentiment encapsulates the essence of our minister training session. Our purpose is not merely to impart knowledge, but to be empowered with the tools and insights necessary to lead our respective churches with wisdom and grace.

Embrace the Extraordinary:

Life, like a majestic ocean, holds within it endless possibilities and hidden treasures waiting to be discovered by those with an unwavering desire to fulfill their Divine purpose. Imagine a life where each day begins with a sense of adventure, where challenges are transformed into steppingstones, and purpose lights up the path ahead. God has called and chosen each of us in our respective places of ministry to embark on a captivating journey to uncover the secret of going to the next level of effective ministry.

Unearthing the Challenges:

Life often throws an assortment of challenges and distractions our way, luring us away from our true purpose. In a world with constant clamor vying for our attention, it is all too easy to lose sight of what truly matters. Yet, deep within us lies a desire for something more, an inexplicable longing to uncover our unique purpose and forge a destiny in the kingdom that is unassailable by hell’s forces.

Beneath the noise of daily demands and external expectations, we can relate to the Psalmist’s yearning in Psalm 27:4 (KJV), “One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.” Like the Psalmist, we too yearn to dwell in His presence, to unravel the beauty, to enquire in His temple and to know what He has designed for us in this hour.

Embracing Your Purpose

In the midst of life’s tempestuous storms, we can take solace in Psalm 27:1 (KJV), where the Psalmist reminds us, “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Embracing a positive mindset helps us to follow our Divine compass and lets God guide us to where He wants us to be.

Shedding light on the challenges that hinder our journey, we often encounter self-doubt, fear of the unknown, and the lure of comfort zones. However, God is awakening the Apostolic church to her true potential and when it is merely easier to settle for a meager existence – let us dare to thrive!

Cultivating a Daily Walk with God

Here’s where the change maker lies—when we learn to cultivate our one desire into a daily walk with God, it opens a door to unlimited possibilities. Instead of depending on our performance at church, we see God in everyday life work through us to bring honor and glory to his name.

Remember, the magnitude of our potential isn’t determined by the difficulties it presents, but by the passion with which we embrace it. Every day brings with it opportunities and challenges, but when we trust in the nail scarred hand our path becomes clear, the next step is revealed, and we are moved onward to victory.

Thank for your agreement to accept this opportunity to join us for the Issachar Ministry Training. It will provide all of us with a powerful prospect for growth, unity, and revival within our local churches.
