Remember When

I have been very blessed to have been involved in ministry for over 2 decades and have had some great ministry partners and volunteers that I have worked with. Because of that time I have a lot of moments where I think, “Remember when” and think of a great time in ministry where God has done great things and I just rejoice and thank God for the blessing.

Cory Sullivan is one of those leaders who I have been blessed to have worked with and had a lot of great moments in ministry with him. So I thought it would be great and fun to have an episode where we remember when. So that is what Cory and I do.

But there is a point to this podcast. It isn’t just a fun episode for Cory and I to talk through. It is the hope that this will inspire you to do 2 things:

  • Give your “Remember When” person a call, thank them for doing ministry during that time and share the great memories God has done during that time.
  • If you don’t have a “Remember When” person you do ministry with, keep praying and looking for that person. God never wants us to do ministry alone. I pray that God blesses you with that person so you look back and remember when with.
