Good Word Ministries is a ministry of preaching, education and training. Check out our credentials in the other portions of this website, and if you can use us, here is what we can and will do for you.
1. OUTREACH PROGRAM
We can help the church create a dynamic, effective, and biblical Outreach Program that will result in church growth both numerically and in depth. We will come to your church for as long as needed to personally train the pastor, staff, and lay volunteers on how to set up and maintain an outreach program that will glorify God and bless the church. Different churches will require and desire more time than others. The only thing necessary is a willing spirit and a committed pastor. The pastor must assist by being onboard and enthusiastic. Perhaps he will want to allow some pulpit time – at his discretion- for us to charge and challenge the congregation.
What about costs? We will do this for nothing except bare expenses and that is not billed – it is left for the church to decide if they want to pay anything. We require nothing for our efforts, but will not refuse love offerings or any other means of covering necessary expenses. We have an income and a camping trailer we can and do set up for our personal needs. The expenses mentioned are for the travel and such. This is Free to the church in the sense that our labors and expertise will not require remuneration. This is our ministry.
There will be, of course as all church programs require, ongoing budget costs for materials for any church to conduct an outreach program that is effective. The materials for the training will be provided by us at a nominal expense and depends on the number of people requiring materials. We can do a budget analysis to assess your priorities and give suggestions as to how to arrange the budget to accommodate a vibrant outreach program. There is no obligation whatsoever to us for the church to do anything - other than be serious about winning people to Christ and discipling them.
2. DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING PROGRAM
We can help the church develop and maintain an ongoing Discipleship Training Program for new believers and others that desire to plow deeper and do more. This may take several weeks as well and the same things apply to this program as to the Outreach Program - travel expenses are all that we ask.
3. CHURCH CONSULTING
We can provide consulting services for organizing the church to become more effective in evangelism, church growth, and education ministries. All our services are free according to the model laid out in #1.
4. EVANGELISTIC MEETINGS
We can hold evangelistic meetings, for extended periods of time, designed for and accommodating the church calendar and goals. We have guidelines for setting up for these meetings that should be followed. Again, they are free according to #1, but love offerings are encouraged.
5. REVIVAL MEETINGS
We love to do church revivals. These are to be distinguished from Evangelistic meetings. Church Revivals are a ministry to the church family and focuses upon calling Christians to a spirit of Revival with deeper, more earnest commitments to the work of bringing in the Kingdom.
6. BIBLE CONFERENCES
We will be a speaker at your Bible Conferences, or be the only speaker at a Bible Conference that you set up for us. The Conference is a book of study on some subject that can be decided by the pastor and us together. We have many studies already created and have been used. We do not object to creating a special study for your particular church or area. However it will require more lead time to tailor make a study for you. We provide notes for each conference and in some cases, books for the congregation to study and reflect upon. There is a cost for the books, but not the notes. Conferences with books:
1. Behold the Man! A study in humanity of Jesus from a unique and compelling perspective. People may be startled to learn of the kind of man Jesus of Nazareth, the biblical Jesus, was.
2. The Most Neglected Messages in the Bible. This is a study of the book of Hebrews - an extremely sobering study.
3. The IXTHUS Project. A theological study of God's scheme for the Earth. What is God doing? Why is He doing it? How is He doing it?
