I used to have a whiz-bang ministry resume here, it had a well written objective with carefully thought out keywords. All of my wonderful accomplishments were listed in user-friendly descending order each with its own list of eye-catching bullet points.
But lately I’ve been thinking that there’s an inherent contradiction in a ‘ministry resume.’
After all, the Kingdom of God is built not by my own pragmatic attempts ‘fix things’ but through the work of the Spirit, so what business do I have in attempting to take credit for the things of God?
for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure.Philippians 2:13
Rather than take credit for things I have no reason to take credit for, or have you try to evaluate me based on a technical manual of success stories, why not meet together and have a discussion? You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To provide you with a frame of reference, here are some of the ministries I’ve worked with:
- Pastor of Worship and Music with Thorn Creek Church
- Young married couples small group leader
- Volunteer leader with South Jefferson County Young Life
- Musician with Hillside Community Church
- Intern with Harvest Farm rescue ministry, part of the Denver Rescue Mission
- Intern with Fairhaven Church Student Ministries
