This Dad’s heart is full. Here are the comments we shared in tonight’s service before the prayer of blessing.
Thank you, CAC Denver, for your resounding support and affirmation!
Acts 6:3-4 (KJV)
3Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
4But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
On a regular basis, my son, Don, and I sit down for a heart to heart. This past week we talked about the Call of God on his life and his willingness to step up and lead in ministry responsibilities like never before. He is answering that call by accepting the position of Administrative Pastor of CAC. His desire is to specifically relieve me of the business and administration portion which tend to distract from my Senior Pastoral role.
Bro. Don III has a pure heart for God and God’s people & kingdom. He is ready to be tasked with ministry from the big-picture (e.g., strategy and organization) to the small details (e.g., budget line items and members’ meeting agendas). He has a God-given passion to follow the vision that God has given me as his pastor and wants to help see that vision carried out in all areas of the church. His qualifications come from Spiritual equipping through theology college courses, CAC MIT course certification and a lifetime of sound doctrine preaching. He has been working behind the scenes for several years with Bro Hammann (worship services) and Sister Kelly (Music) and myself (handling monthly administrative meetings) and is now going to assume the added responsibilities of office work that was previously handled by my secretary. He leads with humble, loving diplomacy and is in 100% submission to pastoral authority.
In business, he’s gifted in administration, organizational strategy, and communications.
His business career started 7 years ago at Castle Rock School of Music. God has blessed him to move from retail, to manager, to instructor and now he owns his own studio company and has 40 private students (with a waiting list.).
God has blessed his business so much that he can now schedule his work to accommodate this call from God to give even more time supporting ministry needs of CAC.
I am a blessed man that he is my son, son in the gospel and a true helpmeet to me in ministry and we at CAC are blessed to officially add him to the team.
Please be respectful. Endeavor to limit business contact to busines hours. Let church be church!
If it is administrative/office or church service/event logistics, he is your man.
If it is spiritual, counseling or pastoral, Talk to God first and then I am your man. 😇
