As we approach the end of 2015, I rejoice in what God has done this past year through OnePassion Ministries. It has been a time of extraordinary advance for the gospel in which our labors have seen the favor of the Lord upon them.
The last twelve months have seen us host The Institute for Expository Preaching in ten different cities around the United States and overseas. From San Francisco to Miami, from Phoenix and Denver to Washington DC and Rhode Island, including the Czech Republic and South Africa, some 800 pastors and teachers have been equipped in biblical exposition with precision and power. These men, in turn, stand weekly before their congregations and classes to proclaim the word. Their influence on a regular basis is felt upon over 100,000 people with the truth of God’s word.
Moreover, we have expanded our OnePassion website to better serve the church. We have posted new resources such as sermons, sermon CD series, and sermon transcripts. Our Expositor magazine has grown to a subscribed readership of almost 2000 readers. Each issue is devoted to providing substantive articles by leading pastors and professors on the practice of expository preaching. In addition, we have started Expositor podcast in which I discuss key elements in effective Bible exposition. We are also starting another podcast, Following Christ, which is aimed at encouraging all believers in their daily walk with Christ.
As we seek to influence a new generation of preachers, your financial support is necessary in order for us to move forward through the doors before us. This upcoming year, 2016 promises to exceed this past year in ministry impact. With your help, we are poised to equip a new generation of heralds of the gospel. You can give your support online or by mail by visiting our GIVE page on our website.
For a gift of any amount, we would like to send to you two Christmas sermons in a special commemorative set. You can keep it for yourself or give it to someone as a gift.
Blessings in Christ,
Steven J. Lawson
