How did this make an impact?

  1. Evang. Francis Ejeromedoghene September 9, 2019 at 1:14 am

    Thank you so much Pastor Rick for these beautiful words.

  2. Thank you so much Pastor Rick. These were very encouraging comments. From Pastor Rick Venne…..Timmins, Ontario, Canada

  3. Thank you so much Rick. You have been an inspiration for me for many years now. I never cease to be amazed at how you can simply things and with such clarity. You get to the heart of the matter with such profound revelations that I often use them for devotion or even sermons!
    You above article is a great encouragement to and for me right now. Thank you so much.
    I’ve been in ministry for 20 years.
    I praise the Lord for you Rick.
    Keep up the great work.

  4. Wow! This is quite timely and on point. I’m a “small church” pastor and have read (and gotten discouraged) by articles such as “5 Ways to Grow Faster”; 10 ways to get more visitors”; “20 ways to make an impact”, etc. It can make a pastor feel insignificant and that no one knows about what you are doing. This article should be a must read by all pastors …especially small church pastors. As a matter of fact, I’m going to send the link to pastor friends.

  5. You’ll never know how much I needed that word today – Thankyou. After 20yrs of ministry in this Church we’re seeing a few come to Christ but still looking for the major breakthroughs… But we know we serve an amazing God – and he is LORD. Hallelujah!

  6. Every ministry is important. Pasted Rick you are a blessing to us over here in Nigeria. We wish to see you one on one some day. Thanks sir more grace. Evangelist, Akan Eyo.

    I am really encouraged, thank you Sir.

  8. Pastor Rick,
    Have you been to Vietnam? 98 million people. 1 to 2 percent evangelical.

    Rick, consider coming this way – the need is desperate. Or as Jesus said the “laborers are few.” And yes, the field is ready for harvest.
    P. Vanworth

  9. I really enjoy your thought-provoking sermons and comments each time I read them. God bless you and I am cheering for you.

  10. Rev Bob Schlemmer August 23, 2019 at 4:33 pm

    God always know where we are and when we need to encouraged when we are going setbacks in our life, as I have for the past few weeks. I needed this today and consider it as my answer from God where I need to be for the moment. Thank you for allowing God to use you in so amazing ways. I will continue to pray for God’s blessing n your ministries as you minister to pastors like me who need a uplifting sometimes. Thank you again.

  11. Thank you sir.

    Surely intriguing. I have a calling, but serving under the man of God. There’s pressure to go for my ministry, however, I feel like staying until I’m spiritually pushed by God Almighty. Pray for me that I remain obedient to God until He say it’s time. I strongly believe that as Samuel was called and the Priest was well aware, so be it also in my situation. Amen

    Thus teaching helps us pastors not to build whilst outwardly focused. We also need to compete with what God has given to us. Bless you Pastor Rick.

  14. Thanks Pastor

  15. Thank you Pastor Rick. The message is timely. I will rebroadcast it here among my pastor social media group. And part on Facebook.
    You are a blessing to the Body of Christ.
    Pastor Okeson (Nigeria)

    It has been a timely encouragement.There are moments when I have tried my level best yet the impact not felt and the growth of the church insignificant. In times of challenge, I have found myself lonely, and just desiring someone to talk to me such words. I always read your articles, books, and listen to your messages. All these have helped me to move an extra mile but I trust one day I will be able to see you face-to-face because I want to connect with you more intimately. God bless you more.

  17. Pastor Rick good morning! I am not a pastor, but your message is very inspiring and encourages my heart every time. May God continue to bless and use you as you make yourself available to him

  18. Thank you so much Pastor Rick. I was dying for a word of encouragement. My signifance is knowing that I material to God. God bless you Pastor (Marcus Mohan )

  19. pastor Ezekiel Mwanzi from Nairobi,Kenya August 22, 2019 at 5:30 am

    Im really blessed,as an upcoming pastor with less than ten members in the church for two years and almost giving up im encouraged ,continue praying for my ministyy.

  20. Patrick Chishimba August 21, 2019 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you pastor for your encouraging message. I will continue to be me and not a carbon copy of someone. Sometimes I would feel like I’m in the wrong place and tempted to quit. I thank God that He divinely positioned me. Pr Ricky your ministry blesses me a lot may the good Lord continue using you as a strength to the body of Christ.

  21. Thank you I appreciate your Ministry and this word is exactly what I need as I’m contemplating where to now!

  22. Thanks so much Pr. Rick. I needed to hear that.

  23. I am totally strengthened with your teachings, Pastor Rick, keep it up. AMEN!

  24. Thank you. Simply, thank you.

  25. Pastor Segun Fabusoye August 21, 2019 at 6:54 pm

    This is highly encouraging and insightful. Thank you.

  26. I cannot believe how much l still have to learn. It is daunting. Through Christ, all things are possible!

  27. I am really blessed by your messages this particular one was timely. May God bless you for being a blessings to others. Thanks

  28. Hey Rick,
    Thanks for the encouragement. I really needed this today. With a team of volunteers in our 100 plus year old church in a small town in East Texas we are trying to revitalize our church. As you might expect it is not an easy task. I am feeling very overwhelmed today.

  29. Thank you. This came when I needed it most. God is good. God is faithful.
    Lord this is Your dream and Your church. Use me as You will.

  30. Thank u so much for this word of encouragement, Pastor Rick. It blessed me today and I needed it. The Lord continue to bless u and your ministry.
