What is your ministry?
My ministry in the church involves working with children, teenagers, and youth—I teach in Sunday school, children of middle age. I also have personal conversations with them when needed (because of problems in their family, for example). In addition, every year, I serve on summer camps for children. I also help lead a youth group in the church and prepare lectures for youth group and meetings (on Zoom and in-person), and I'm part of the worship team in our church.
Also, as a psychologist, I want to use bible principles, even in my workplace where I help people with mental problems and disorders who are not Christians or do not have a personal relationship with God. However, I am often in a dilemma about how I can use this in a non-Christian environment. On the other side, I want to learn more about how to help people in the church who have a relationship with God but are facing mental disorders or problems in their marriage.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I want to learn new things from people who serve God with all their hearts and are greatly used by God. Also, to experience God in new ways, learn about what God has for me next, and how I can improve to serve better in ministry in our country.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I have learned a lot of new things on Forum, especially when helping people with their problems in the church. For example, now I understand emotions from a Christian perspective, how Jesus sees our feelings, not only in that typical psychological way. This helps me better understand our children's emotions in church, and it is easier for me to help them when they have problems.
