Welcome to my Chronicles, Journey, Thoughts, and Insights. In this blog I write primarily, but not limited to spirituality and ministry! My name is Greg. I am a follower of Christ, telling and teaching others to be Christ's followers. I first stood behind the pulpit at age 12. At age 17, following my conversion, I preached my first evangelistic sermon. I became a pastor at age 25 and became a missionary at age 32.
Last Thursday, we had a pastors' workshop. One of the topics a covered was the five functions and purposes of the church based on the five purposes of the church by Rick Warren. If you want to view the my PowerPoint presentation, here is the link: Five Functions of the Church
Greg B. Fernandez Jr. based on the Purpose Driven Church by Rick Warren
I challenged the pastors to balance these five purposes in order to build and grow a healthy church.
