Pastor Steve's Monthly Message


Message from Pastor Steve

I always feel our connection most strongly during “Annual Conference.” For 3-4 days every June, the pastors of our conference, along with leaders from every member congregation, gather to discuss the “state of the Church” and our vision for the future. I have been attending the annual conference’s here in Central Illinois for the past 16 years, and can say that this year’s was probably the most Spirit-led and hope-filled as any I can remember. While debating healthcare pro- posals and conference budgets was a necessary part of the conference, we celebrated the work of the United Methodist Church throughout the state of Illinois and in locations that included the John Kofi Asmah School in Liberia, Wiley College in Marshal, Texas and Lifebridge Ministries in Houston. Eight new elders and one deacon were also ordained as pastors.

Most memorably, our guest speaker, the Rev. Terry Tekyl, led several sessions that called us to be a people of prayer...”in the name of Jesus!” Friends...that really is what it’s all about: growing churches that help grow disciples who pray “in the name of Jesus;” who worship “in the name of Jesus;” who live life grounded “in the name of Jesus;” who offer their gifts of time and talent to the world “in the name of Jesus,” and who share the Father’s love “in the name of Jesus.”

I’m excited to be a part of all that Prospect is doing to help do ministry “in the name of Jesus” and hope you’re just as excited about living into, drawing from, and sharing about the power in that name!
