It’s a fact that spiritually-healthy pastors contribute a great deal to promote spiritually-healthy churches. It’s also a fact that the casualty rate amongst pastors is worryingly high. As someone has remarked, if this happened in industry questions would be asked. Yet the kingdom of God is more important than industry.
One of the benefits of an association like FIEC is that we’re able to engage with the government on behalf of our churches on matters that might affect them. Each individual independent church only has a small voice, but FIEC represents over 500 churches and their members.
For years now, far too many men and women in FIEC churches, who have a passion to serve the Lord in ministry, have discovered how hard it is to find help, advice and direction with regards to a possible route into gospel ministry. All that is about to change with the arrival of The Hub Conference!
