Ministers Prayer Fellowship

Welcome to the Ministers Prayer Fellowship online. We're glad you're here today. This resource is designed to provide practical help for pastors around the world. Years ago someone took the time to mentor me-to teach me about working with people, about leadership principles, and about teaching and preaching the truth of God's Word. I'm still learning. In this site I'm sharing a portion of what I've learned over the years in the ministry. Much of that learning took place in the classrooms, in the pulpit and in my study of God's Word. I believe, to become a pastor there must be a calling and a gift of teaching. When we have that gift we can always working to sharpen our skills so that we can motivate others to be their best for God.

I was privileged to serve as a pastor/teacher for more than twenty five years. My father the late Pastor P V Thomas served as a pastor for about 60 years and his influence in my life and in the ministry has been immeasurable. Most of the resources in this site are simply based on my personal experience and that of those mentored me. In some articles, I simply adapted an existing work to fit the format of this document. In all cases, I have done my best to credit authors and originators. May this resource help pastors use their time and energy in the best way.

Upon hearing of the death, the pastor should go immediately to the family and offer comfort and support. Be sensitive. Listen. Let them know that God cares and that you care. Here are a few ideas to help as you.... more

Lord, to Whom Shall We Go?

In the apostle Peter's confession of faith he gives expression to two points. First, "Thou are the Christ, the Son of the Living God" (Matt. 16:16). Secondly. "Thou has the words of eternal life" (John 6:68). more
