It seems these days we only tend to hear about people in ministry who are “Statistics in ministry” Meaning they are no longer serving in ministry due to an affair, addiction, personal issues or just burnt out, etc…
What I do on Mondays is to highlight one of my friends who is/has served the ministry faithfully. And honor the individual/couple who are faithful to the calling. Someone you might never hear about but is doing great things for the kingdom!
Today, I would like to honor a good friend Aaron Hampton
He is the Associate/Administrative Pastor at New Covenant Church in Myrtle Beach, SC. https://newcovenantmb.com/
Arron was the Associate Pastor at my home church growing up here in Chattanooga. Every time I have the honor of baptizing someone who’s said yes to Jesus he comes to my mind. It goes back to that Sunday morning in June many years ago that I showed up to the church after driving all night to tell my church family I gave Jesus the steering wheel of my life… Arron was one of the only ones who I felt genuinely celebrated with me that morning. In fact, he was the one who baptized me! Years later, as a pastor, I’ve baptized hundreds of people and every time you and that moment come to mind brother.
It was great to catch up with you and Shantel a few months ago. So excited to see you still being faithful to the calling God has on your life! Keep preaching, administrating and pointing people to Jesus bro!
