How to Pass the Baton in Ministry and Spend Time with Jesus

Episode 182 - Zack Woolwine

When working in ministry, it is crucial to spend time with Jesus. Without Him, we really can do nothing. Our guest, Zack Woolwine, talks about just how important abiding in Christ is. As a pioneer missionary to the Pacific Island area, he has many stories of how God is moving there.

Zack has a vision to work himself out of a job. As he continues to make disciples in Tonga and surrounding islands, he plans to pass the baton onto the local pastors and leaders. With local leaders taking charge, the Gospel has continued to spread to the outer reaches of the Pacific, leaving almost no place left without the Good News of Jesus.

Episode 181 - Jacob Via

Sometimes, discipleship can be messy. Our guest, Jacob Via shares about his experience in sharing the Gospel across cultures. He is currently a missionary and church planter in Haiti. Eventually, he wants to see the Gospel spread to every corner of Haiti, to where there is no place left to spread the Gospel.

Jacob also discusses the process of discipleship, including both its joys and struggles. Although there have been moments of difficulty, God has been faithful to lead in the ministry and bring many to salvation. More people in Haiti have finally heard the story of God’s redemption, and no longer see Jesus as a “good luck charm,” but as their Lord and Savior.

Canada, Church Planting, How to Make the Good News Tangible in the World

Episode 180 - Matt Hess

There are important things to remember when working in ministry. Like that it is the Holy Spirit who draws people in, not good YouTube videos. Matthew Hess shares about the value of humility in church planting (and everyday life).

He is currently working to plant twelve churches in Toronto through The Fellowships Church Planting Network in the coming years. Matt grew up in Oklahoma, and while pastoring in Northwest Mississippi, felt the Lord calling him to reach those who had never heard the Gospel. God gave him three criteria: It had to be an unchurched community, very diverse, and a big area.

With that list, and a desire to remain humble and teachable, he has been able to abide in the Lord while sharing the Good News across Toronto.
