A repeat on Sam but let me say this. We must continue to come to Jesus and charge the throne of grace until “the love of Christ compels us” (2 Cor. 5:14,15). If we are content to get about mission and ministry without this love stirring and pulsating in us, we ought to read 1 Cor.13 again. “If I give my body to be burned but do not have love, etc”. In the end, this is the only kind of ministry and mission that is going to have the fingerprint of God on it.
Rick Schaeffer born in Long Beach, California, is a church planter-trainer, discipler, and he works with his hands (redoing houses/painting/etc). His favorite movie is Lord of the Rings, his favorite smell is a steak being smoked, his first job was painting houses, and when not engaged in Spiritual disciplines he enjoys to do almost anything if its with his wife Katie or their boys (2 sets of twins).
You can listen to some of Rick's teaching on "Seizing what God has Promised and Made Available" here.
