I think you are still teaching "Christian Ministry" almost every day - just in a different format. :) As someone still relatively new to being a pastor, I appreciate your honesty and heart. You've helped me more times than I can remember through your words, thoughts, attitude. Thanks, and don't stop. :)

I am happy to say I was one of those students at that "small" college. I learned a great deal that was of abiding worth at your feet. The desires you (and Broyles) cultivated have continued to bear fruit in my life and ministry.

I am equally glad, and blessed, to have stumbled on your blog.

May the Lord bless you and keep you, and make his face shine upon you.

Jim: It's that process called maturity. And just to think of what God has in store for us in this area 16 years from now! We'll look back and (if we have any memory left!) wonder how we could have missed such important things in life when we thought we'd made such progress.

Thanks for your openness in sharing your life.


You do a great job of teaching Christian ministry still. Even 10 years ago when I got to play as a church secretary for you, I didn't realize that you were teaching me even more than that.

I also have to say how much I respect your role in the greater community here in Waco, beyond the CoC. Keep it up!

Jim Martin

Dan, Thanks for such an encouraging note. I appreciate your words. I can appreciate what you are dealing with in being relatively new. I continue to have a lot to learn as well

Jim Martin

Thanks Bobby for such a gracious note. I am thankful to re-connect with you again.

Jim Martin

Thanks Greg---It is good to re-connect with you again. You encourage me.

Tracy! I remember that time period ten years ago. So glad you and Scott are here. I have so much respect for both of you.

Jim: I am glad to say I was one of those students, too many years ago. Surely, one of the highlights of my education process. Pulled down and read a little of "My First Parish" the other day. I didn't realize how fresh those words still are - and yours, as well

Jim Martin

Barry! So good to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words. I have much respect for you and your work. Would love to see you again.
