If you're like me, you understand the transforming experience of God's grace. By his great power we are set free and brought to abundant life. In response to his call on my life, I have given myself to him fully, pledging my life to Christian ministry. I began a broken sinner. Then his grace made me new. He has called me to share his deep healing with others along their spiritual journeys.
There are four desires in my heart that seek to respond to Christís call. I desire to live in intimacy with my God by constantly pursuing him, to be continually transformed by the Holy Spirit, and to steadily grow within the context of spiritual community. Only when these three desires are pursued can I continue with the fourth in integrity: to move forward in service to the world in which I live.
As a part of my ministry preparation, I have prayerfully identified several core values that are essential to my ministry. These include life-long learning, healthy family, spiritual formation, serving out of passion and gift-based ministry, evangelism, and accountability. I have outlined specific steps towards maintaining these values in the ministry approach section of this website.
May our Lord bless you as you consider inviting me to minister with you,
Pastor Steve Baney
