Fruit Abounds The place Seeds Are Planted

The image above is from two weeks in the past and represents a type of moments that makes me so grateful we started West Coast Baptist College twenty-six years in the past. 

The three males being ordained are all WCBC graduates, they usually have been ordained on the church the place they’re now serving in ministry—Religion Baptist Church in Canoga Park, California, with Pastor Tim Rasmussen. From left to proper (and with their commencement yr in parentheses), 

  • Kip Williams (2012) is serving as an affiliate pastor and media director. 
  • Jesse Lanza (2019) is serving as a pastoral assistant in Spanish ministry.
  • Joseph Rasmussen (2020) is serving as an assistant pastor in youngsters’s ministries. 

All three of those males (in addition to their wives, who’re additionally WCBC graduates) had distinctive testimonies by way of their faculty years. All three have proven proof of the calling of God upon their life by way of their diligence to and fruitfulness in native church ministry. 

To the glory of God, these three males are consultant of practically three thousand WCBC graduates serving the Lord across the globe. I’m blessed every time our graduates share how God is utilizing them and the fruit they’re seeing of their ministries. 

As a result of WCBC is a neighborhood church Bible faculty, it’s uniquely positioned to coach laborers for native church ministry. Not solely is WCBC beneath the oversight of Lancaster Baptist Church, however its founding objective is “coaching laborers for His harvest.”

As a neighborhood church Bible faculty, we’re notably conscious that the scholars who come to WCBC are the fruit of native church ministry earlier than they ever enroll in Bible faculty. Every scholar represents a pastor and native church who’ve labored of their lives. We’re grateful to enter into the labors of house pastors and, in lots of instances, Christian dad and mom who’ve spiritually nurtured their youngsters. 

Jesus gave one prayer request: 

Due to this fact mentioned he unto them, The harvest actually is nice, however the labourers are few: pray ye subsequently the Lord of the harvest, that he would ship forth labourers into his harvest. (Luke 10:2)

Each scholar who involves WCBC is a solution to the prayers of those that are praying for this request. And each scholar who graduates from WCBC is supplied to hold out the Nice Fee of Christ by way of a neighborhood church within the harvest fields of the world. 

If you’re contemplating ministry coaching, I invite you to think about WCBC. Right here at WCBC, we’ve got a number of ministry diploma packages, all designed to coach Christians to vary the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

If you’re a WCBC alumnus, I need to let you understand how grateful I’m for you and the way I rejoice once I see fruit abounding in your life. 

If you’re a pastor investing your life within the native church, I need to encourage you to maintain planting the seed of the gospel. Maintain praying for God to lift up extra laborers by way of your ministry. “And allow us to not be weary in properly doing: for in due season we will reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:9).

Maintain sowing seeds. Maintain praying for extra laborers. 

Fruit abounds the place seeds are planted.
