What is the fruit of the MIP?
James Douglas, state MIP coordinator in Heartlands, tells his story
This is my first year serving as the MIP coordinator for the Heartland Region. As a first-time coordinator, I’ve observed a few things. First, I have been blessed to watch this group of interns grow in their leadership abilities and walk with Christ. Each one has overcome obstacles and made sacrifices to invest in their growth as servants in the kingdom of God.
Second, I believe through the MIP process, they have made lifelong connections with one another. These are the kinds of relationships that bond new ministers to the Church of God.
Last, MIP has given each intern a deeper appreciation for the Church of God as a movement. It has unlocked new tools and resources that they will be able to use for years to come.
As I wrap up my first year as a coordinator, I suppose the thing I’m most grateful for is a Church that is playing an active role in training and sending people into the harvest. I cannot wait to see how God uses this class of interns to impact the Heartland Region.
