Doug and Jan Taylor in Cofradia

It is always a blessing to have former Cofradia Missionaries, Doug and Jan Taylor, come back to share their lives and ministry with us.  Each year, they come to do a variety of different conferences usually focusing on Marriage, Family/Child Rearing, and Leadership.  This year we had them come to share about Priorities.  The first meeting was with our Leaders on Friday night.  As a staff, we believe that having a clear set of priorities will help us be more effective in everything we do, especially if we're ministering and teaching others.  They taught our leaders that 1) our relationship with God was first priority, then 2) Family a) Marriage b) Children, then 3) Work; to provide for our family, and finally 4) Ministry.

Saturday night was a more general teaching on priorities for the whole church.  Sunday morning they shared what our priority as Christians is as far as sharing the gospel--what we do.  We are to seek first God's Kingdom and His Righteousness and Sow the Gospel wherever and to whomever.  This goes right along with what Pastor Gollo has been speaking on as this year's focus is being evangelistic.  He has quoted a number of times St. Francis of Assisi, "Preach the Gospel at all times, and if you need to, use words."
