Coaching leads to fulfilling God's will in our life

by Pam Roth
As Nelson and I work together as part of the RM team, our heart’s desire is to reach out and be a blessing to pastors and their spouses.  We love “the church” and understand what it is like to be in the ministry.  Through coaching, we have an opportunity to be there for those that minister and to come alongside them as they serve their congregation.  

The following is a testimony from a pastor’s wife about her coaching experience. 

“In September, Pam and I talked about the possibility of connecting for some life coaching sessions. As many of us would do, I immediately thought, "Sure, why not..." However, it took me a month to follow through with just setting an appointment. Life is so busy! Putting off such a great opportunity due to busyness had become my MO (method of operation). I'm not even sure I realized how much I needed coaching then; but, God has a way of getting our attention.

A Coastal Thrift Store Impacts Illinois

by Teresa Houchin
How can an event that happened a year earlier and a place nearly 1,000 miles from where someone lives impact their life for eternity?  Well, here’s Eva’s story.  A story about ministry that’s truly relevant!

Last summer, a team from New Horizon Church of Heyworth, IL served at a thrift store in Waveland, MS.  This thrift store helps to support the ministry of Christian Life Church, a church planted out of the needs left behind by Hurricane Katrina. The thrift store also serves as one of the ways people get connected to the church. 

While they were here last year, the New Horizon team began praying and dreaming of a relevant way they could impact their community back home in Illinois. A few months later, New Horizon opened “Worn Again Too” a fully functioning thrift store in Heyworth, IL reaching out to the surrounding community.

Leadership development, building healthy ministries

by Nelson Roth
Through both coaching and training events we've had the privilege of working with churches in the area of leadership development.  It’s exciting to partner with God as he shapes leaders for unique contributions to the Kingdom.

Recently, Relevant Ministry has been working with a new church in New Orleans, the Evangelical Garifuna Church.  Each church setting brings challenges and our work with the Garifuna people has been no exception. Speaking English presents a language barrier for many of the members of the Garifuna Church; however, we've been blessed to have our materials translated into Spanish and have a Garifuna interpreter for our training sessions.
