Objective: Teaching and Discipling Others in Christ

Year:

Context: Heritage: Planning, Teaching, Serving, Creative Projects

Context: YouCanLearntheBible: Writing, Recording, Publishing, Sharing, Updating

Ideal State

I make Heritage a better place. I help others know and love their Bibles better, and in doing so know and love God deeper. I have years invested in helping our people go deeper in Christ. All of our lives have been blessed tremendously because of my investment into Heritage. Apart from teaching and discipling, I am available to jump in and serve when needed, to give my time to people, and just love them well. Not only is our church trained theologically, but we have learned to love the Spirit of God and seek to please God by living holy lives together. YouCanLearntheBible.com is thriving! It used by people all over the world as a way to get access to engaging, high-quality biblical training that is not available in quite the same way anywhere else. People love my Bible courses! They go through them, share them, and my teaching ministry has been able to bless people I have never met because of them. My YouTube and Vimeo channels are active, and I constantly get emails and comments of how people appreciate my teaching content. It is the legacy of a lifetime of teaching God’s Word made available for anyone to benefit from.

Big Goal for This Year

Teach and publish Galatians as well as finish publishing all previous course material on YouCanLearntheBible.com and YouTube

Beginning Status

SPENT, BUT GOOD Despite my personal life being extremely exhausting during September and the first part of Oct, my Galatians teaching has really gone well. We have developed quite a community of people who love God and really want to dig into His word. No doubt, though, the pressure has been constant. I have not really had a chance to breathe because I have had to create a new teaching each week. This has really forced me to focus and create, and I am very proud of what I have created, but it has been a burden, as well. I am very much looking forward to finishing this series and taking a breath so I can begin to tie up loose ends that I have not been able to get to. My website has not been updated much at all, but I am looking forward to adding all of my Galatians content on to it.

Staying on Track and Celebrating Progress

I was available to help and serve during summer, and I am very proud of the growth that this series on Galatians has brought me. I am also proud of the improvement in my course building workflow. I feel like I am getting better and better at creating quality, deep, and visually appealing teaching resources. I did make some very meaningful progress on my website backlog over the summer and have even continued that somewhat during Season 4 as well. Still, it is not where I want it to be, but I really have made some great progress.

Main Focus

Finish teaching Galatians and get back to finishing loose ends from my previous courses. Hopefully I have have The Complete Bible Overview totally finished and begin to work on Evidence for the Resurrection, Spiritual Formation, Philippians and Galatians

Specific Commitments

I will finish creating and teaching the remaining lessons in Galatians and then get back to updating and sharing my previous courses

Prayer

Lord, help me to teach your Word with passion and accuracy and to love and lead your people in the way that pleases you most
