That is why I have been prevented many times from coming to you.
My aim is to preach the gospel where Christ has not been named
But now I no longer have any work to do in these regions, and I have strongly desired for many years to come to you whenever I travel to Spain. For I hope to see you when I pass through and to be assisted by you for my journey there, once I have first enjoyed your company for a while.
Right now I am traveling to Jerusalem to serve the saints, because Macedonia and Achaia were pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem.
Yes, they were pleased, and indeed are indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual benefits, then they are obligated to minister to them in material needs.
If we have sown spiritual things for you, is it too much if we reap material benefits from you?
So when I have finished this and safely delivered the funds to them, I will visit you on the way to Spain. I know that when I come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ. Now I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, through our Lord Jesus Christ and through the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in prayers to God on my behalf. Pray that I may be rescued from the unbelievers in Judea, that my ministry to Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints, and that, by God’s will, I may come to you with joy and be refreshed together with you. May the God of peace be with all of you. Amen.
Over the course of this year-long program, you’ll serve in your role alongside directors for 20 hours per week, attend a bi-weekly systematic theology class, as well as fulfill department specific tasks. If you’ve considered work within a ministry context or are curious as to how your skillset may align with the Gospel, we’d encourage you to consider applying. As an educational experience, you’ll be equipped and trained to further develop your interests and skills while also learning about ministry work as a whole.
