Fall – A New Season of Ministry

Greg Strand – September 9, 2013 Leave a comment

Fall is upon us! Most ministries enter a different rhythm and pace during the summer months, so not only does fall bring a change of season, but also a new season of ministry. This does not mean all ministry is new. Many ministries will remain the same but simply beginning afresh. Some ministries will be new.

As I begin this fall season of ministry I am excited for continuing ministries already in process, continuing a long obedience in the same direction (to use a phrase from Eugene Peterson), and also for beginning new ministries.

I am thankful for the joy of ministry at home, at the local church and at the EFCA, and I am humbled for the privilege of providing leadership in each of those important realms.

What about you? What excites you about beginning a new season of ministry?

Greg Strand


Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
