On Sunday December 13th we were ministering at Faith Baptist Church in Pembine. Currently Dan Raught and Mark Massey are co-pastoring this ministry. I shared our DVD video as a presentation of our ministry and preached for the AM Service. It was a blessing to see a good Sunday morning crowd for the service.
We drove up to the Pembine area on Saturday and had the privilege of staying at the Victory Academy, a ministry for young men under the leadership of Mark Massey. Our guest room was in the boys lodge and so we had some interaction with them in the evening and for breakfast. At this time there are seven young men resident at Victory Academy. Our connection with Victory Academy goes back to northern Illinois where it started under the leadership of Steve Schroeder in the 1980s. I believe this is an important ministry to help young men who are growing up in a somewhat chaotic world and who have yet to find their full spiritual foundation.
