I’d very much appreciate your prayers today, especially around the noon hour when our Key Ministry Board will be meeting.
We’re blessed to have an extremely passionate and gifted staff and Board. Today, our Board is going to be tackling several important issues…a job description for the Board President, processes for communication between our Board and staff and processes for resolving disagreements…which will occur when you have as many bright, passionate, strong-willed and successful people in your organization as we have.
I’d ask you pray for God to give our Board wisdom and discernment in determining the best stewardship of the time and talents of our people, and for God to be at work in strengthening and protecting our relationships with one another and our relationships with like-minded leaders outside of our team…because the enemies of our mission would like to see those relationships be broken.
UPDATE: Your prayers were very much appreciated. We had an excellent Board meeting and made progress on a number of challenging organizational issues.

On my knees…..
Father Who Loves Us, the servant leaders of Key Ministry ask for your guidance and grace today. Give them impeccable words and thoughts as they honor your will and each other. Remind them they have not been called to success, but to obedience as a witness to others and as an active agent of YOUR plan for YOUR kingdom. Let your will be done, it’s all for you Father. Amen
Team – in my own ministry and at board meetings, I disarm everyone with the burden of titles (even though technically we have to structurally have them) by giving them the title of CEO which means CHRIST EMPOWERED OFFICER. It’s amazing how that title makes people immediately hold their heads up! Also, remember “none of us is as smart as all of us”. Your collective intelligence is really incredible. Key Ministry is making a huge difference in the community of disabilities throughout the US. God has blessed you mightily!
I love you guys and your organization! I’m praying for you all!
You’ve really been on my heart the past few days. So I’ve been praying with not sure why :). God is with you.
You have my prayers. We have a very good relationship with our Board(s) but I realize how challenging it can be. Key Ministry is doing so many good things and I will pray for the gift of a supportive structure that is able to work in partnership to enhance and bring to an even higher level, the work of the staff.
