THE SECRET TO AN IMPACTFUL “TEACHING” MINISTRY!!!

(Master Key To Transforming Your Word Ministry) - Pastor Bimbo Animashaun Reading the Bible from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22 twelve times in a year "ALONE" does not make you a great teacher of God's Word.

OF MINISTRY “STYLE” AND “SUBSTANCE”!!!

(The Core Issues) - Pastor Bimbo Animashaun There's a wide gap and margin of difference between "STYLE" and "SUBSTANCE" in ministry.

THE ROLE OF TEACHING IN PASTORING!!!

- Pastor Bimbo Animashaun IGNORANCE is not cured by IMPARTATION; it is cured by TEACHING, or what we call EXPOSITION or EXPLANATION. You cannot pastor effectively without TEACHING.

“PERCEPTIONS AND RESPONSES” IN MINISTRY!!!

- Pastor Bimbo Animashaun HONOUR is a product of RIGHT PERCEPTION. FAMILIARITY is a product of WRONG PERCEPTION. In life and ministry, our PERCEPTIONS determine our RESPONSES, and our RESPONSES can make a huge difference between FAVOUR and "MISFORTUNE". CORRECT PERCEPTION is key! You RECEIVE people to the degree to which you PERCEIVE them. Let … Continue reading “PERCEPTIONS AND RESPONSES” IN MINISTRY!!!

THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS IN MINISTRY!!!

Truth is … Continue reading THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS IN MINISTRY!!!

DEAR MINISTER, STAY “RELEVANT”; DON’T GO INTO EXTINCTION!!!

There are four things that I have identified based on ministry exposure and experience that can make a minister to become irrelevant in the move of God and go into extinction. (1) Doing what God did not call you to do or instruct you to do. (2) Inability to handle financial pressure in ministry. (3) … Continue reading DEAR MINISTER, STAY “RELEVANT”; DON’T GO INTO EXTINCTION!!!

IMPARTATION IS NOT LIMITATION!

DIVINE ELECTION IN MINISTRY!

- Pastor Bimbo Animashaun In ministry, JURISDICTION MATTERS. You need to understand the boundary and geography of your call in order to stay safe and last long.

“MOVING THE ANCIENT LANDMARK!”

Acts 8:34-36 NKJV [34] So the eunuch answered Philip and said, "I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?"

MATURITY IN MINISTRY 101!!! (Celebrating Differences)

- Pastor Bimbo Animashaun Maturity celebrates differences. Insecurity attacks personalities and despises peculiarities.

A good place to start from in flowing in ministry grace is to come to the understanding that God is … Continue reading MATURITY IN MINISTRY 101!!! (Celebrating Differences)

THE MOST “DIFFICULT” PLACE TO PREACH!!!

To my mind, the most "difficult" place to go preach is at a Ministers' Conference or Ministers' Meeting - now that's my personal opinion.

A NOTE TO THE YOUNG MINISTER!!! (On Alignment In Marriage)

DEAR MINISTER, it becomes a lot easier for you in ministry if your wife or fiancee (as the case may be) is your "first disciple" i.e. the first person you minister to constantly before ministering to others.

OF PERSONALITIES, CALLINGS, MINISTRIES, HASTY GENERALIZATION AND THE GLOBAL MANDATE OF THE CHURCH

- Pastor Bimbo Animashaun A minister must learn to separate his TEMPERAMENT from BIBLE TEACHING. If for nothing but for the sake of the health and growth of the Body of Christ.

GEHAZI WAS A WASTED INVESTMENT

The Covetous heart of Gehazi did not know when a Prophet is to receive and when not to receive gift. Covetousness and Greed blindfold blind someone spiritual discernment.
