Ministry Encouragement Podcast – Episode #077  – Your Host: Rev. Jim W. Hollis

Sponsored by: Proactive Ministries (   Offices (Smyrna, GA, USA): 770-803-9988

Hello and welcome back to our Podcast community that is growing forward in Christ.  If this is your first time to listen, I truly appreciate your presence in hearing this episode.  If you are a consistent community member, then you know you are loved and valued as you join me in helping grow our community.  Please take a little time to listen to several episodes as they are all different.

This is the second week I have a guest on our Podcast: Rev. Jim Burt, who serves as the Director of Ministry Development with our ministry of Proactive Ministries.  Jim has served as a pastor of churches in the Midwest USA for 25 years before joining our Staff 7 years ago.  He works very closely with our ministry and leads many of our teaching weekends across America.

Our topic for this week is the second half of last week’s podcast:

Twelve Ways We Can Be Encouragers

This week we will be addressing the second six of these ways:

7) By touch (Luke 18:15)

8) By listening (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

9) Through a smile (Job 29:24)

10) Through a gift (Philippians 4:10)

11) Through our presence – the power of presence (Matthew 28:20b)

12) By exemplifying courage & faith in our lives (I Thessalonians 3:7)

It’s  my prayer that you will live out at least one or more of these practical strategies this Christmas and into the new year.  Please know that you are encouraged to share the Ministry Encouragement Podcast with those who are in your sphere of influence.  This may be those in your church, Sunday School class, Bible study, Small Group, Connect Group or others that you want to simply encourage.

Until next week’s episode I wish you a very blessed Christmas season!  It’s all about Jesus Christ and God loving us all enough to come into this world and live among us, dying on the Cross and rising from the grave — victorious over sin and death.  We now are able to receive the gift of eternal life with God through faith and grace in Jesus Christ.
