Janet Howard, the Church Relations Coordinator in the St. Louis area for Operation Christmas Child, shared information about her ministry with the Bridge after church on Sunday, October 13.
She says: I became a year-round volunteer for Operation Christmas Child in 2010 after hearing a Pastor say these words..."It is time that we take Jesus outside the walls of the church". My ministry and focus became ministering to the world rather than the church with much of my focus on third world countries. I was called to this ministry and know that I am in the center of His will. In this position I lead a team of volunteers that work one on one with the Project Leaders of churches that participate in Operation Christmas Child and actively recruit new churches to participate in this awesome ministry that is spreading the Gospel to children around the world.
