On Tuesday April 7th I had the pleasure to address the students at New Brunswick Bible Institute and challenge them to give their best in all that they do from Ecclesiastes 9:10 and Colossians 3:23.  I shared the ministry of Inter-Church and gave our history.  I appreciated the warm reception and the lovely accommodations that were provided for my wife and I.  It is always a joy to get to spend time with the staff there, and I was able to once again thank John Hoag and Matthew Little for the extension studies classes they do at our home church.  The students were preparing for finals but were still friendly and I got to meet a few of them and learn of their desire to serve.  It is always refreshing to see young people excited about serving the Lord thru full time ministry.

I shared the difference between Ecclesiastes' call to 'do heartily unto the Lord' because 'you can't finish the job once you're dead' and Colossians call to work for the Lord, as Jesus is the Master whose evaluation matters and who will reward the faithful in Heaven.  I think it an awesome thing that God LETS us have a part in the work, and that He uses US and works through US.  Even so, even the world knows the benefits of giving our best.  We hold up athletes and actors, performers and politicians that excel in what they do.  But they do it for a 'corporeal crown'.  We get to look forward to a reward that is unending in a place we cannot even suspect, much less know.  I pray as I type this that whoever reads it will recommit to giving their best for the Master.  He gave His best - the Lamb of God, without spot or blemish - so that we who had nothing to give to purchase our salvation could know the joys of acceptance and redemption and gain the peace that passes all understanding through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Inter-Church Ministries has the Nate Ewer Fund to help pay for books and materials to assist students with financial needs.  Many of the students are making a sacrifice to prepare for ministry and are deserving of our assistance.  If you would like to contribute, you may send whatever the Lord lays on your heart and designate it 'for Nate Ewer Book fund'.  This is a needed and profitable ministry and we are happy to be a part.  Also, if you would like to learn more about New Brunswick Bible Institute, click on their logo above to visit their website.

On Christmas Eve I found myself standing in a local business, chatting with the manager and a customer about the weather, the price of fuel, and all the usual small talk folks  make in such a situation.  I was surprised when the other customer, commenting on the drop in fuel oil prices, said, “We can’t even enjoy the lower prices of fuel oil because it’s been too warm.”  I was enjoying the fact that the furnace wasn’t running!  There’s a whole story there in how we never seem to be satisfied with what we’ve got, but that’s for another time.

Nate Ewer Memorial Book Fund PDF Print E-mail

Monday, 21 November 2011 19:00

Many of you probably do not know, but for years Nate and Betty purchased school books for those attending NBBI who could not afford them on their own. We have distributed over $200 so far this year to help students further their education to better serve the Lord.  Nate was a voracious reader, and this is a tremendous way to remember him and help a deserving student.  If you feel led to contribute to this, please send funds to ICM with a notation directing the money to the book fund. Checks for this should be made payable to Inter-Church Ministries. Betty will continue to control these funds for distribution as she and Nate did for these many years.  If you know of a deserving student, you can contact us and we will pass the information along to Betty.

Email

This month we sent out over 600 emails to churches and supporters of Inter-Church Ministries, saving us $294 dollars in postage.  We also sent over 200 envelopes at .49 per envelope, which cost $98.  We will be sending out newsletters at least 3 times this year, which will quickly add up.  We would certainly prefer to spend this money helping local churches and pastors, so if at all possible, please send your email address to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and request the newsletter be emailed instead of using regular postage.  Modern technology is wonderful (when it works as expected), and we are doing all we can to remain good stewards of the resources God trusts to Inter-Church Ministries.  The emailed newsletter is a .pdf file that can be opened with Adobe's free Acrobat Reader and it prints off very professionally so you can post it in your local church to share the work of Inter-Church with your local congregation.  Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Many of you have asked if we pre-qualify our Pulpit Suppliers, Interims and Pastoral Applicants who submit resumes. Each applicant is personally interviewed as regard to family, theological training and doctrinal stand. Inter-Church Ministries Board of Directors voted on this stand in 1979 and has not changed it. It is as follows:
