PODCAST: Parenting as a Ministry

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/15/2014

There are a lot of different ministries given to people. I am in pastoral ministry. We might say that missionaries have ministries of church-planting or evangelism. Ministries such as these are specialized. We used to call them full-time ministry, but that term seems to imply that the rest are not full-time or at least not important.

I feel that every Christian has a ministry — or better, ministries. There are certain things in this world that God has for each of us to do; and each of us is just the right person to do them,

All God-given ministries are important and should be taken seriously. For example, a counseling ministry. I thank God for godly counselors in my life and in the lives of others. And the ministry of encouragement — wow — who doesn’t see how vital that role is?

In this podcast, I am talking about the importance of parenting as a ministry. As you listen to it, ask God to speak to your heart about, not just parenting, but how you “minister” in any relationship where you have influence.
