153. How I Write Pastor Blog

Last week I shared about my prayer life, to reveal part of my life as a pastor. In continuation, I would like to share how I write my weekly pastor blog. I wrote my very first pastor blog on 2013 Jan 6th. Since then, I have written one blog post almost every week for over six years. Based on my record, I have written 318 blog posts. It may not sound a lot, but it actually is, considering how much…

152. How I Pray

I briefly shared how I pray as I was preaching a sermon about “prayer” last Sunday. So I would like to share a bit more in detail how I pray. To be honest, I have a long way to go in my prayer life and want it to be much better than now. But the reason why I’m sharing is to be more transparent about my life as a pastor. I pray at church from 6:30-8:00 am on weekdays except…

151. Prepare Your Sharing

I found out that many members started writing down what they are going to share in house church before they come. I think this is an excellent practice which I also have started implementing. Though this is not a rule at all here are two reasons why I believe this is a good practice for all of us. 1. It makes our sharing concise.

150. TFE Starting Soon

As announced before, Anthony Cho will begin his TFE (Theological Field Education), starting from next Sunday and ending on the next year April. TFE is an internship program of Knox College that provides field ministry training to the seminary students. I will be his supervisor for this term since he requested to be placed in our church. Many of you are already familiar with this program because Rosalyn did TFE not too long ago at our church. It is a…

149. No More Saying “Single” House Church

In our official communication channels, such as bulletin or website, we don’t introduce house church as being divided into single house church and married couple house church. However, in our conversations, I’ve often noticed people saying “single house church,” and I have unintentionally used it as well. So, I would like to ask everyone to avoid using the term “single house church” from now on. Instead, all house churches will be called based on their house church name. Here are…

148. Youth Shepherd Appreciation

As of next Sunday, current youth shepherds’ three-year serving term comes to an end. It is usually the first pioneering group that serves and sacrifices the most and not surprisingly, their service for the last three years has been nothing but exceptional. When I first started youth ministry with Jennifer, we felt we had very little support. Ministry can be pretty tough to do with one or two people. Then four single adults from KSC volunteered to serve as youth…
