Sunday September 29th we were ministering at Grace Baptist Church in Brodhead. Pastor Don Adams is the faithful pastor of Grace Baptist. Carole and I provided special music for the service and I taught Sunday School preached in the morning service. Also during the morning service I shared our power point presentation of the ministry of the WFBC. After the morning service the families of Grace Baptist provided a delicious carry-in dinner. Wisconsin Baptist churches have some excellent cooks!
Pastor Don Adams is among about 20% of the pastors of our WFBC churches who is bi-vocational, working at a regular job in addition to pastoring a church. We thank God for these pastoral families who are willing to make the sacrifice of time and energy to support themselves while serving as a pastor. I have had a number of opportunities to visit on several foreign mission fields, and in many places national pastors working as pastors must be bi-vocational as well. These men are all in good company, for the Apostle Paul himself was a tentmaker while traveling and church planting across Asia and Europe.
