Gregg Family Ministry Update - December 2011

Gregg Family 11_2011
Thanksgiving at Grandpa and Grandma's house in Grass Valley
In less than a month our family will be taking on all the responsibilities of full time ministry with  Christian Service Brigade   (CSB Ministries). This is absolutely exhilarating but as you might imagine a bit nerve racking and stressful. Were it not for God clearly calling us to this ministry the daunting enormity of it might just seem too big. However, with such a clear call the bigness of the call just makes it all the more exciting! As Jesus reminded us

"He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." -- Luke 10:2 

With the echos of a delicious Thanksgiving meal (or two) still pushing up the corners of my mouth that word "plentiful" has an especially encouraging ring to it.

We are in fact seeing a growing desire of fathers to disciple their sons, of sons to turn their hearts to their fathers, and of churches to help equip men in this gospel calling (Malachi 4:6). Don't believe me? Every newsletter I provide a story to encourage even the most "glass half empty" realists among us. If you read a little farther you'll get to this months really cool story.

The kids had a great time at Del Osso Family Farms in November!


As we end this year, and look ahead to a new life as full time domestic missionaries we are entirely dependent on people like you to support us financially in this ministry. As of today we still have more than half of our support left to raise. Would you partner with us by committing to support our ministry with a monthly or even one time financial gift as we strive to help churches effectively reach men and boys for Christ?

We are praying for 5 partners at $250/month, 25 partners at $100
/month, and 35 partners at $50/month but we are genuinely grateful for whatever you are able to do.

We are so excited that God has given us this great calling, please join us in whatever way God has enabled you as we work together to help equip the next generation of faithful Christian men with vision and tools to advance the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ! Three easy ways to support our ministry are described on the sidebar to the right side of the blog.
