Ordination Service

The link is to my ordination service from Saturday, June 2nd.  This was both a solemn and a joyful occasion for me.  I had the opportunity to relate my conversion experience, and how the Lord has brought me along in the ministry, since preaching my first message on August 3, 2005.  I also give a brief confession of faith, covering the major doctrines of the faith to which I subscribe as a minister in Christ’s church.

I would also recommend to those interested that you look under John Ashwood’s name for the charge to the minister.  The title of the sermon  is “Preach the Word.”  Truly, the duties of a minister in Christ’s church are solemn and even overwhelming, and it brings home to the hearts of all of us how much we need the prayers of God’s people.
