Charles Massey's résumé

Last updated

A Christian that believes that we are to mature as Christians from the cradle to the grave. Our focus in chuch has to start in the nursery. The health of any church is the children's ministry.

Experience

I have been involved in a Baptist Church Child Development Center, Supply Preached, Children and Youth Ministries, Discipleship Training, and many other ministries in the church. In these positions I dealt with the vision, mission, discipleship, outreach, training, budget, curriculum, finance, planning of events, connectivity, and meeting the needs of all ministries in the church. I felt I assisted in build the congregation emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. I also worked with mission and church plants to grow God's Kingdom.

As Director of Ministries, I had to recruit, train, and prepare volunteers to teach, serve, and make a difference. I started men’s and women’s conference, Bible Studies, wrote training for new Christians, training to mature Christians, and discipleship training, built a men’s ministry, built and led mission teams to go to Panama for church starts, help to assimilate people into church to use spiritual gifts, and booked special events for the church for outreach.

As Director of the CDC which include Preschool, I led a group of fine teachers to assist the parents in raising their children physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Our whole ministry was to allow the children to hear about Jesus and develop so they could thrive in the world today. This was also used in the church children program to continue the ministry of the CDC and continue the growth and nurturing of the children. This started with children from 6 months through 5th grade. I hired and selected volunteers and paid staff that wanted to see the children thrive physically, socially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Additional information

My objective is to serve the Lord with the skills & abilities that He has given me in a ministry setting. This allows me to use my desire for studying and teaching the Bible to disciple other believers. I am a creative, passionate, persistent, encouraging leader who is looking for a church that needs help in ministry. Have the ability to lead the church to grow deeper by providing kingdom leadership in the area of discipleship. God has designed each of us to influence the world in a way that no one else can. It’s crucial to discover and unleash our God-given influence in order to fulfill God’s purposes for our life. My desire is to see people come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to disciple them in their relationship with Him. Then to continuously accomplish the Great Commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:45-48; John 20:21; and Acts 1:8, by telling and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Lost, while disciplining the Saved! Also, can provide high levels of competency in accounting and budget control and project management plus be responsible for comprehensive managerial leadership of all church operations and ministries. The church exists to worship God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, to equip God's people through Biblical training, and to proclaim the gospel today.
