Pastor Ford will explain today that the best ministry comes out of our pain, comes out of our lack, and comes out of our brokenness. Sometimes we have to be bruised in order to be used. Ministry is not easy, but it’s worth it! Because when we go through what we have to in order to minister, we end up bringing more glory to God through our pain, lack and brokenness.
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
