SECRETS THAT HELPED MY MINISTRY WHEN MY MEMBERSHIP WAS 7

Ministry is a divine mandate handed over to humanity to demonstrate the love of divinity. It is an opportunity to demonstrate divine agenda and concept to humanity. I started my ministry with Ghc 4.60. For the first two years of my ministry my total membership was under seven. I was tempted many times to give up but these are the  things i did that helped me. 

1. THE VOICE OF THE FATHER;
I started ministry not knowing what to teach or preach. What i used to do was to teach and preach the messages of my Spiritual father. I have learnt to value and treasure the voice of fathers. My spiritual father taught me that significant changes can be made when we take insignificant steps. Whenever I face a challenge that was above my strength, i would just ask for the inputs of my father. Godly counsel from my spiritual father helped me to be focused on my assignment,


2. DEDICATION TO DUTY:
In those days it was easy for me to give up on that which i was called to do in life and ministry. There were many times i decided to move back to Takoradi because the ministry was not working. I got to know that a person's commitment and obsession to his assignment is what determines whether he makes it or not. I decided to be faithful and committed to myself and my ministry.I sold myself out completely to my calling. I spent time visiting other ministries to learn what i did not know. I remember visiting 13 prophetic ministries to find out why they were succeeding or failing.

3.NEVER GIVE UP
One of the secrets that helped me when I started off in ministry was the tenacity to hold on to my purpose and not giving up. I have faced all manner of battles in life and in ministry. I was told i was not a good teacher and preacher of the word. Someone said i was not called by God and i remember a senior prophet of God even using his pulpit to discredit me and my ministry. But what i have learnt is to hold on until i become that which God wants me to become. Never give up your ministry because of obstacles and accusations of men.
You will make it.
