I am very thankful for the opportunity to plan my November 13th ordination service.
Each part of the service is very special to me. Even the songs had a special purpose.
Here is the outline of the service with certain parts explained.
Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)
I love this song because of its great truth. It reminds me over and over again of the great gift I have been given in Christ (Romans 5:8).
I love this specific version of the this song because it reminds me of the story of William Wilbeforce and the ministry of the Daughter Project
What is ordination? Pastor Duke Crawford
You Have Been Raised
The first time I heard this song was at Grace Fellowship Church in Florence, Kentucky.
I attended their Counseling/Discipleship Training - Track 1 a couple of years ago.
The church's passion for teaching and training with God's Word is contagious from the pastor Brad Bigney to those serving snacks and lunches at the conference.
I am especially thankful for my friendship with Ken Long. We don't see each other very much but when we do, my heart is encouraged.
Why I am thankful? Pastor David Rodgers
Pastors Duke, Kerry, Dan, Andy, Paul, Pastor Snyder and Casey thank you.
And Pastor Shane, who has been a friend and an encouragement for so many years.
The truth of this song is so overwhelming.
One of my favorite videos of this song is an animated story.

What is the role of a pastor? Dr. Dann Austin
