2021 has had a quick start for our ministry at Jump Start. The Lord has blessed with many speaking opportunities and several consulting opportunities. We have stayed busy with around a dozen speaking engagements over the last few months. These engagements included a 3 night revival series, a 5 service Easter weekend outreach campaign, and speaking on the topic of outreach at several other local ministries in Virginia. We have worked with two ministries on offering outreach consulting based on local in depth demographic reports and worked with several other pastor’s consulting on outreach related issues.

Earlier this year, Jump Start launched Develop My Ministry. The emphasis of this ministry is to help pastor’s both personally and professionally. We offered our first quarterly pastors gathering on zoom back in March and were excited to have about 20 pastors from around the world tune in as we discussed leading off the map in unchartered territory. Our next pastor’s gathering is Tuesday, June 15 on zoom and we will discuss three outreach ideas for the post covid church.

The summer ministry opportunities are beginning to increase as we head off to camp to speak for a week in Virginia in June and begin to work with several ministries in hosting block parties and backyard parties to reach connect with their community.

Please pray that God will allow us to continue to help the church connect with their community with the gospel in mind.

Following Jesus,

Ryan Flanders
