Scripture as the Base for Ministry
This lecture describes the story of how one ministry (Youth for Christ/Sri Lanka) attempted to have all its ministry spring from the Bible. It will demonstrate how Scripture can guide in the developing of strategy, in the choosing of methods in ministry, at team meetings, when deciding what to speak or teach on, when developing the priorities of a ministry, and in the developing of the principles to govern community life and leadership.
