Pastor Drew Rietjens FamilyPHILOSOPHY OF MINISTRY
Ministry, in my experience, is rooted in the overflow of your own personal spiritual life. In order to serve and love others, that at times can be very challenging, one’s eyes must remain fixed on the Triune God. Ministry is dependence on the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. It certainly does not take much time being an under shepherd of the Risen Lord before you realize how much and how often you need help, wisdom and empowerment.
Ministry is also letting the Holy Spirit work through your own individual uniqueness. Time has made a great many things about myself very clear. My spiritual gifts are teaching, mercy and encouragement. I describe my way of doing ministry as a coach, preparing and coming alongside of others, so that they may walk in the good works God has prepared in advance for them.
