The ministry of Methodism’s founder, John Wesley…
was transformed when he began preaching outdoors to Kingswood coal miners rather than inside England’s churches. Thus, the institute’s name. Perhaps you believe God is calling you to ministry in South America. As a Volunteer In Mission, you travel there and engage with the people as you serve in Christ’s name. Affirmed by that short-term experience, you pursue more transformative training at Kingswood. Your own community provides another scenario.
“We don’t want people to start programs; we want them to start ministries,” Rev. Jeremy Basset said. “Ministry is expression and response to a need. Ministry is what you do until the need stops. A program is what you do until you get tired.”
I submitted to be more vile,and proclaimed in the highways the glad tidings of salvation, speaking from a little eminence in a ground adjoining to the city, to about three thousand people.”
