Current ThemeMoney and Ministry: Principles Of Biblical Stewardship

North American Christians live amidst historically unprecedented levels of affluence. However, in the past number of years the United States has experienced a deep recession and a slow recovery. With giving down even among Bible-believing Christians, it’s important for those who earn their living from preaching the gospel to manage church finances and personal finances wisely. In this issue of Enrichment, we will explore some time-tested biblical principles that will help guide Christian leaders during these turbulent and uncertain financial times. The issue will address such questions as: What does the Bible teach about wealth and stewardship? Will believing in Jesus Christ make you rich? In acquiring wealth, how should Christians use it? Why has giving decreased and what practical steps can Christian leaders take to help reverse this trend? In tight times, what are best practices for stretching ministry dollars? Because helping the poor is a core moral obligation for Christians and churches, what are some time-tested ways of helping the poor that do more good than harm?

    Your Daughters Will Prophesy: Assemblies of God Women in Ministry

    On the Day of Pentecost, the apostle Peter quoted the prophet Joel, saying, “Your sons and daughters will prophesy” (Acts 2:17, cf. Joel 2:28). God’s promise of an eschatological outpouring of the Holy Spirit has been fulfilled in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit calls and empowers both men and women to exercise prophetic ministry in the last days.

    Historically, the Assemblies of God has recognized that this Spirit-empowerment opens the doors of credentialed ministry to all qualified applicants, whether men or women. The rise of the so-called New Calvinism, which often teaches that credentialed ministry is open to men only, is causing many young men (and a few young women) to step back from our historic commitment to equality in ministry.

    In light of this reality, the spring 2015 issue of Enrichment will examine the issue of Assemblies of God women in ministry under the theme, “Your daughters will prophesy.” The purpose of this issue is to promote the value of credentialed women ministers within the Assemblies of God (USA) by exploring our history, searching the Scriptures, and evaluating our contemporary practice through the lens of our Pentecostal commitments.
