The editors of THE MINISTRY sincerely desire that your professional journal will be of practical service to each worker in the field. We want every page to speak words of training, strength, guidance, and inspiration.
It has been suggested that we provide more "how" articles—the kind that help a man where he works, lives, and has his ministry. We are grateful for the information we receive concerning the larger reach-the-masses type of evangelism, and we trust this will continue. However, it is felt there is a need for more counsel styled for the pastor in a large district of small churches.
The pastor-evangelist has an intense longing to be a greater soul winner. He desires to carry out all prescribed church programs, and he wants to do it more spiritually and more efficiently. He yearns to be a scholar of the Holy Scriptures, and to dig deeply into the mines of sacred truth. He looks toward THE MINISTRY to aid in filling these ministerial needs.
THE MINISTRY is a composite of thought from men in all avenues of our sacred ,calling. Each has been given some particular gift. We have been placed in different circumstances and environments. In the operation of our service, ideas and methods have been developed that have proved of value. God has blessed in various ways. Why not share your thoughts and successful programs? Have you prepared material for a workers' meeting? Then widen your sphere of influence by sharing it with the world field through these pages.
It is in sharing that the fellowship bonds are tied more tightly in spiritual strength and service.
