majority of ministry and missionary activity in the early Church
and Ministry was accomplished by nonprofessionals, ordinary men
and women involved in secular work as their occupations. Jesus
entrusted the laity "ordinary people" with major
responsibilities of spreading the Gospel. Jesus took fishermen
from their boats, He made them fishers of men. Jesus knew that
ordinary people would become extraordinary when empowered by the
Holy Spirit. When the Lord calls us into His ministry He does
not place any limitations on us, we are only limited by our own
imaginations. We look forward to speaking with you about your
calling and how we may be able to help you further your reach
in the ministry.
- Just as each of us has one body with many members, and
these members do not all have the same function, so in Jesus Christ
we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all
the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given
us. If a mans gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion
to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching,
let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it
is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously;
if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing
mercy, let him do so cheerfully.
The authority of Jesus was opposed because He was not an approved
religious leader. He did not hold the credentials of a scribe
or Pharisee. They questioned His authority because He was a carpenter's
son from the poor village of Nazareth: Please remember this and
let no one stand in the way of your call into the Lords' ministry.
You should each judge your own conduct. If it is good, then you
can be proud of what you yourself have done, without having to
compare it with what someone else has done.
Lord has called each of us to live for a cause a lot greater than
ourselves. If He were to asked you today what have you done for
the poor, the suffering or the needy, what could you say? Jesus
had a special place in His heart for the poor. Spend some time
with the Lord and ask Him how you may use your gifts and talents
to improve your own life, the life of the poor, the suffering
or the needy within your own communities.
-13 - I tell you the truth,
anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done,
and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.
You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that
the Son can bring glory to the Father. This you can count
on if your faith and your heart are true.
I have seen it time and time again in my own life.
Fellowship Ministries is about the great commission by recruiting
good hardworking people who have been there to go out into the
world, spreading the gospel, going to where the suffering and
pain is, not waiting for them to come to us. We have been given
a vision and a wonderful calling to build a mighty ministry for
the Glory of the Lords' Kingdom. The apostle Paul said that all
believers in Christ are part of "one body". And if one
part suffers, "all the member parts suffer". Therefore,
we must ask ourselves: Do we grieve when a brother or sister is
in trouble? Do we experience sorrow and pain in our hearts when
a child of God is stricken with afflictions and trials? If not,
we must get on our knees and ask our Lord and Savior to help us
become the kind of people who can understand and share the pain
and suffering of others.
- Dear brothers and sisters, what's the use of saying you have
faith if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith
can't save anyone. Chaplains go where others would never dream
of going. Please never let anyone tell you that you are not good
enough, or smart enough, listen to your hearts and following the
Lords' calling in your lives. Many claim
to have faith, but my question always is, are they faithful? Faith
to the unfaithful is worthless. Just something
to think about.
Jesus asks us to follow and obey Him, His call comes with the
promise of the protection, guidance, sustenance, and rest that
we need at that time in our lives. His call is suited to our needs,
He knows us intimately, He walked among the poor, the out cast,
the forgotten and the lost. Please remember one thing, if you
don't remember anything else! You make a living from what you
get in life, but you make a life from what you give of yourself."
We as chaplains must have Jesus as our Lord and Savior in our
everyday lives, without Him we have nothing, without Him we are
- "For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown
no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment." Does anyone not
want a merciful judgment from God, before whom all must stand?
don't just read scripture, stop and think about what it means.
There is always a lesson to be learned. Reading scripture only,
means nothing if we don't act on it. One night I was watching
a program on TV about prisons and inmates. One of the cases was
about a young man who served 16 months in prison for stealing
a loaf of bread and a can of tuna to feed his wife and two children
who were homeless and hungry. I can not help but wonder who the
Lord was most displeased with; the man who stole to feed his family
when they were hungry, or the people who put him in prison for
16 months leaving his family on the street, homeless, for taking
less than five dollars worth of groceries to feed his family?
I find such thinking very sad, where was the mercy in this
situation? which is just one of the thousands if not hundreds
of thousands of stories we hear today. Chaplain Gibson
- Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are
my disciples. This
is something that we had all better start thinking about! Help
each other and those in need, follow your hearts and let the love
of Jesus Christ show through you.
Ordained: Those who join Chaplain Fellowship Ministries become
legally ordained as nondenominational chaplains and ministers.
This gives them the freedom to minister without all the politics
and religious entanglement that may have kept them from following
their calling in the past. Becoming an ordained chaplain and minister
opens up a whole new world of opportunities and a totally different
way to reach those who are in need or suffering. Many pastors
who have become ordained as member and chaplains start feeling
the blessings once again that they had forgotten, or had not felt
in many years. I can assure you the chaplains of Chaplain Fellowship
Ministries not only understand the Gospel of Jesus, they walk
it daily in a major way for the Glory of His Kingdom. Will you
come join us, Folks you can make a difference! Something we all
need to think about, "to the world we might just be one person,
but to one person we may be the world".
let your lack of education or life history keep you from pursuing
what GOD has called you to do, we have all made mistakes. It has
always amazed me when some people who call themselves Christians
go out of their way to try and belittle, degrade and hurt their
brothers and sisters. The
Body of Christ is made up of many different parts, not just the
self righteous who who place themselves above others.
can anyone say that they have the love of Jesus in their heart
and turn around and attack those who following their calling by
serving in His ministry. Many have no idea that 70% of Chaplains
serving in the world today do not get paid; they are volunteers
working to help make this world just a little bit better for those
who have nothing and no where to turn in their time of need. I
don't know about you, but I will always do anything and everything
I can to stay faithful to the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ, and the ministry that HE has called me to.
