Senior Pastor Aaron Rayburn - The Master's Plan: Discernment Groups

I have really enjoyed leading three Discernment Groups during this season of discerning The Master's Plan. My Groups - Missions/Evangelism, Prayer, and Community - have been wonderful. I really appreciate their hard work and willingness to take time out of their busy schedules to pray, read Scripture, and plan. We have a lot more ground to plow but we are going to keep praying, reading, planning, and praying some more.

Here is what we have been doing in the Discernment Groups. We have been doing a lot of praying and reading Scripture. From our Scripture reading, we have been identifying Biblical values and Biblical non-negotiables that apply to each ministry area (Missions/Prayer/Community). From these Biblical values, we will be striving to wordsmith Biblical value statements that will guide future conversations and planning. Just taking time to pray and identifying Biblical values for each of these ministries has been refreshing and rewarding.

Let's continue to pray for all the Discernment Groups and the Pastors who are leading them. It has taken a lot of time, but the blessings have already been apparent. I want to encourage ERBC and the Discernment Groups to keep reading, praying, and relying on God's timetable. Let's trust God, develop a Jesus-bias, pray for wisdom, and seek unity in Jesus!

I love you all very much. May Jesus have supremacy!

Pastor Aaron
