"New ministries yield new miracles, new possibilities, and, - yes, new challenges, but with every challenge is a learning experience that pushes me to evolve for the betterment of the community and, more importantly, the Kingdom of God.
The hard and difficult times create character and patience with people and stretch you, allowing your capacity to deal with others to widen and deepen for God’s glory to be received. I relish in the journey of doing what God calls & witnessing growth from a small seed. Important components for a new ministry are being intentional to gather men, women or youth, but most essential component is consistency: rehashing a clear presentation of the gospel so that we don't only learn what & how God instructs us to live but how to personally apply it and cultivate habits for our own lives. Structure is also a major component to have in place when building from the ground up as a ministry begins to grow. The pillars or components that will be the foundation are these three concepts: being Christ-Centered, Community-Engaged and Culture-Inclusive. We are open to the movement of the Spirit as the engagement evolves. " - Nathaniel Carter, Pastor of This Generation Connect and 2019-20 NWC Resident of the Greater Mon Valley.
