Amazing Things Ministry Church is a First Century experience.
Purpose: The purpose of this ministry is to encourage, strengthen, and build a ministry-bond for saints being equipped for ministry and prepared for slaying the enemy of our souls to the glory of Jesus Christ our Lord through reading narrative Scripture, sharing, and prayer. Remember, this is how the New Testament Church operates going from house-to-house (ACTS 5:42). Also, their principal fellowship standard was searching the Scriptures. Today, there are many trappings that are acceptable only if the resources and time are concentrated on the Scriptures. The believers in Berea represented the model (Acts 17:10-12).
Requirement: While anyone can attend, persons in credentials or educational programming must attend on session a month or more during their programming. This program is also coordinated with the Ministry Limited Believers who cannot attend a normal weekly worship service. It is also for other persons who want to be a part of a Church experience strictly focused on Scripture and equipping believers for core ministry.
Narrative Scripture: These are the parts of the Bible principally in story-form. Narrative Scripture also lends itself to the
participant's personal discovery about the attributes of God,
life principles, Bible personalities and events.
Pastoral Lead: This is the person who assigns and schedules the Pastoral facilitator.
Recommended Bible: Facilitators need to have a contemporary Bible. The preferred reading Bible is the New Living Translation. Other similar reading Bibles: New International Version, Amplified Bible. Participants can have any acceptable version: King James, New American Standard Bible, etc.
Communicating and Participation: The sessions are held by conference call. The Facilitator will provide the number, and passcode. Participants should limit background noise and distractions. A computer is not necessary, but the facilitator can use the join.me platform, or other A3CEES web-based facilities so participants can see the facilitator. This is an option and not required.
Cost: Each participant is responsible for the cost related to the phone call or computer time where applicable.
Volunteering: Participants are not required to attend. Attendance is open to all comers. All participants are subject to the policy in this guideline, and should arrive on time.
Time Sessions: Sessions will last one hour in duration. The reading period is usually about 50 minutes and prayer period 10 minutes.
Prayer Requests and Prayer Limitations/Etiquette: Due to the limit of time, the facilitator will ask for prayer requests. The facilitator will ask for volunteers to pray. Persons praying must avoid praying about the details of anyone's personal life. Examples of too much detail and unnecessary disclosure:
Example 1:John and Mary Doe have marital difficulties. "Dear Lord you know we pray that John will stop beating Mary like he did last night."
All that is necessary is to pray for the healing of the marriage.
Example 2: A wayward son or daughter. "Lord we pray for Jane. She's living as a prostitute." All that is necessary is to ask that Jane be delivered from her life style.
Example 3: The Jones family is having a new home built. This does not mean the Jones' should not be in prayer, but we want to safeguard against persons who want to indirectly indicate their status or material possessions. Save this kind of prayer for yourself and personal friends.
However, if the Jones' don't have a home, and they seek a place to live by all means this is a matter the group desires to collaborate in prayer.
Example 4: Mary is given a terminal prognosis. "Dear Lord we pray for Mary. Her family does not care. There's no money to bury her..." Lord, we pray for Mary. You know the doctor's conclusion. You know the family support for her. Lord guide me on what I need to do.
The bottom line is that you can pray all the detail you desire when you are alone. But when the prayer is shared before others we need to use discretion. We do not desire to gossip through our prayers. We do not desire to enable materialism. The most mature prayers are those emphasizing kingdom building, saving the lost, healing and equipping believers for service, support for persons working in ministries and preparation for ministry.
Offerings: The Church is every believer. As a result offerings are first to care for you and your family needs. Use your employment and other resources to take care for your family needs first (I Timothy 5:8). If you desire to bless those who are teaching you or providing counsel, you certainly may give if desired (I Timothy 5:17). And on occasion we may have a special effort to support ministry. We'll let you know when these opportunities arise (I Corinthians 16:1-4). Video on New Testament offerings: Here Complete study on New Testament offerings: Study 1 Study 2

Jesus' commissioned us to make disciples (Matther 28:18-20). We are required to develop believers. We have provided the most important topics to your development. No matter how long you have been a Christian, a refresher should never be an issue. If you have never been in a well-designed development program, Amazing Things provides the essential programming to develop each believer as a mature believer in Christ. There is a video, questions, and a book. If you simply want to watch the videos, and write brief notes that is also acceptable.
