How to be Faithful in Suffering and Blessing in Ministry

Episode 195 - Rex Schnelle

Being believers, we are full-time ministers whether we are in the marketplace or are vocational ministers. As you listen Rex Schnelle shares his story, you'll discover how he's ministered to people in the music business, led ministries in the Church, and supported those who are fighting through addictions in his years of faithful service.

Now God seems to be moving Rex from marketplace and lay ministry towards involvement in a Church plant. Discover how he's preparing to be involved in worship evangelism and discipleship – to pour into the lives of Believers and also the community at large.
