Entrepreneurs for Christ…Key Ministry Birthday Wishes

Key Ministry was officially “born” on the evening of December 24th, 2002 in the office of Hu Auburn, founding Board Member and (at that time) Senior Pastor of Bay Presbyterian Church, between the 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM Christmas Eve services. I’d like to thank Hu and all of the people of Bay Presbyterian Church for the encouragement, prayer and support they have offered on my behalf and on behalf of our entire ministry team. I hope that the people of BPC, but especially our Father in Heaven are pleased with the return on investment they’ve received for their time, talent and treasure invested in Key Ministry.

Entrepreneurs for Christ.

I came across this paragraph from Bay Presbyterian’s website the other day during a Google search on an unrelated topic…

  • Nearly 100 years after its founding, BPC remains a unified, energized and highly focused congregation. Unlike many large churches, BPC is rarely concerned with preserving its past or avoiding change. Instead it has thrived year after year by teaching, equipping and inspiring highly qualified and visionary individuals among its staff and membership—people who have seen Christ at work first-hand within the church’s walls and who have responded in faith by initiating their own ministries both inside and outside BPC, often with the active support of the church itself. This is truly an empowered congregation.

I’m honored that Key Ministry is part of the Kingdom legacy of the people, past and present, of BPC. My hope is that we’ll still be around at Christ’s return, serving to extend the work He performed within the walls of Bay Pres by helping other churches everywhere minister to families of kids with disabilities.

My Christmas wish is for the Holy Spirit to be at work in other churches to provide the teaching, equipping and inspiration of “highly qualified and visionary individuals among their staff and membership” and unleash them to be about the work of the Kingdom.

Best Wishes for a very Merry Christmas 2011 from the Board of Directors, staff and volunteers of Key Ministry, and a Blessed and Joyous New Year!
