Brethren:
I am interested in conversing with you in regards to the position for a preacher you are seeking to fill. Let me tell you a little about myself, my style of delivery, and my philosophy of ministry. I also will tell you what I am seeking in a church.
I am 56 years old. My wife, Diane and I have been married for 35 years. It is the only marriage for either of us. We have 4 children and 8 grandchildren. Three of our grandchildren have been baptized into Christ. Both my wife and I were reared in Marion, Arkansas and our children lived there most of their lives.
I have experience preaching on the radio and also on television. I have also arranged and conducted several lectureships. I have had articles published in the Gospel Advocate, The Gospel Journal and the Firm Foundation. While I am not a college trained counselor I have been involved in helping Christians through their difficulties.
When I preach, I use plainness of speech and words that can be easily understood. If one in the audience cannot understand what I say then the sermon is a failure to that one. I tend to get excited when I preach. I move around some and sometimes raise my voice. I seek to present the sermons in a way as to capture and hold the attention of my listeners. I preach the Word neither adding to it nor detracting from it. I do not skip controversial subjects but neither do I preach anything with the intention of stirring up strife.
My philosophy of ministry is really very simple. My first priority is going to those who are outside of Christ. I want to reach them with the soul saving message of the cross so they may come to Jesus to be healed. I visit the infirmed and the wayward members as well. I believe it is my duty and privilege spread the Word as best I can. To some in the community, the preacher is the face of the church. From that I realize my ministry must include some PR work though that is not the primary focus.
I desire to locate with a church that wants a long term relationship with its preacher. When the church changes preachers every few years, it sends a message to the community that it is not stable. The moving around is not good for the preacher either. I want to locate and help build something good for the Lord.
If you will go to Youtube and search Centertown Church of Christ, you can see some videos of my preaching. You may also search Mac Ballard on YouTube. We also have a Face book page. Please let me know if you need anything more.
I look forward to hearing from you shortly. If I do not, God bless your search and please pray for mine. After all, we are in this together.
In His Service
Mac Ballard, evangelist
