Do you have life experience to share with younger women?  Are you short on time and not sure how you can add “one more thing” to your schedule?

He adds, “The professionalization of the pastorate is killing the spiritual life of congregations.” [p28]

“Jesus neither sulks nor sighs about us.” [p35]

Last year the North Campus elders of Bethlehem Baptist Church invested time at each elder meeting reading together through Wesley Duewel’s book, Touch the World Through Prayer. Here is an excerpt:

Before meeting Queen Elizabeth, I was told, “You must never speak first; wait until you are spoken to. You never ask royalty anything; you answer royalty.” I was told, “In your first reply, you must add the words, ‘Your Majesty.’”

In the September Star, Pastor Jason said,

We can’t be Christ-exalting without being people-loving. The more we love, the brighter the cross shines. Let us pray for a renewed outpouring of relational graces. Let us be a lost-pursuing, others-embracing, disciple-making, people-loving church for the glory of Christ.

Wanted: Titus 2 Mentors

Published by: Pam Larson
August 21, 2014

We are aware of the command and the great need to pass on to the next generation a legacy of biblical womanhood.

Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.—Titus 2:3–5

Why a Titus 2 Ministry at Bethlehem?
