We know this is a very busy time of year for you. If there is any way that we can be of service to you, please let us know. We are happy to pray for or with you, talk with you. We pray you have a blessed time, especially from now until the end of 2013.
This is a picture from one of the recent outreaches at our church.
A lot of people worked to make this day possible.
How can we help each other build the Kingdom
1. We can be concerned for each other and show that concern through personal contact, prayer and encouragement.
2. We can take the time to get to know each other and speak well of each other. We can watch each other's backs.
3. We can share ideas that have worked with us and allow others the freedom to adapt those ideas to their ministry situation.
4. We can make each other aware of resources that are affordable and available to help us all to minister more effectively.
5. We can support special ministries that others are sponsoring.
Evangelist Greg Hubbard
I am writing today, to highly recommend the ministry of Pastor Mike Poppa and Still Waters Ministries.
With our being on the road for over 28 years now as evangelists, I have witnessed firsthand in my own life, and in the lives of pastors and the people we minister to, the great need for each of us to walk in spiritual health. With his many years as a senior pastor, The Lord has gifted Mike to challenge, encourage, and teach people not only to identify their struggles, but how to overcome them and walk in victory.
It is with great ease that I recommend the ministry of Mike Poppa. A sweet spirit, solid Bible teaching, a great sense of humor, passion for Jesus, and a desire to bless every pastor and church, are things you can expect when having Mike for ministry.
I was telling a pastor friend recently, "if I were a pastor, I would schedule a "Still Waters Weekend" every year to bless the people and for a fresh reminder to be people of the Word, who stay in love with Jesus."
We want to take some time just to say "Thank You!"
Thank you for responding to God's call on your life.
Thank you for the time you spend in the Word and prayer to deliver a Word from God to the people in your church.
Thank you for waiting on God for vision and direction to lead your people into God's plan for their lives.
Thank you for all of the hours you serve that are unseen by the many people to whom you minister.
Thank you for all of the phone calls, e-mails, personal conversations, letters, and meetings you take care of so that people can find the answers they need.
Thank you for the hospital visits, the funerals, and the times of hardship and crisis where you stand by people in the hour of need.
Thank you for being the people God has created and called you to be. THANK YOU FOR BEING A PASTOR!
Rev. Jack Mason, Retired Pastor
Still Water Ministries is being raised up for, "Such a time as this." A time when churches need a fresh word of healing and a time when Pastors and Ministers need a fresh word of encouragement. Mike and Anna, come with a rich background of ministry experience and life experience. They will help both pastors and congregations to experience a new level of potential. This is a "must check it out" ministry!
Here is some of the Ministry Still Waters has been doing:
Speaking to groups about how they: are appreciated,
can improve relationships, grow personally, better serve Jesus in their church and more.
Meeting with stressed leaders. Taking time to listen and hear their hearts and to walk with them to a better place.
Helping individuals and groups to reassess their situation and approaches to allow God to give them a new and more life-giving perspective.
Being present and interacting with individuals in time of crisis and struggle to help people to maintain a right course.
Reminding people that learning can be fun and effective.
Staying true to the Word of God and our call to help people find Renewed Vision, Restored Souls, and Refreshed Lives.
Pastor Phillip Menditto, Sr. Pastor: Philadelphia Christian Center
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Still Waters Ministries to churches and religious organizations. What impresses me about Still Waters Ministry and specifically Pastor Mike Poppa is his heart for Jesus Christ and his fervent desire to see the Lord move in the hearts of people.
Still Waters Ministry has helped so many draw into a deeper relationship with the Lord as they overcome difficulties in their lives and to walk in total victory with our Lord. You will find his preaching and teaching biblically sound, anointed and delivered with great energy. Mike’s passion for God is evident as he brings forth the word to both encourage and challenge people.
Mike Poppa is one of those rare individuals whose life truly reflects the heart of God. He is a personal friend, a man of integrity and I highly recommend Still Waters Ministries whether for Retreats, Counseling, Pulpit Cover or the many other resources he provides. His ministry would be a blessing to any church.
