Partnership To Create Great Impact

Have you been given a desire to do something great for your community or for others outside of the community? Do you feel overwhelmed by the task that you desire to complete? Do you have the faith to get started, believing for a great outcome despite the evidence being present?

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

When desires are birthed in us. We don’t get all the pieces of the puzzle at the same time. Often we don’t even know how many puzzle pieces are needed. However, that’s when we act in Faith believing that the right outcome will occur.

On February 17, 2021 I was flipping through my Instagram when I came across Pastor Jamal Bryant, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. He was about to go live with his Lenten Service. I decided to check it out. I must admit I often followed him from afar. When I was a young Licentiate coming up

in the AME Church out in Oakland Ca, our paths crossed briefly. He was the first young preacher I heard preach with power, substance, wisdom, and anointing. It was a dynamic Word. Over the years I was blessed to be assigned to my First Pastorate by his Father, Bishop John R. Bryant. Nearly 20 years later we are still serving the Lord. What a blessing!

As I watched the Service he spoke ok raising 50K and providing supplies to those in need. I was led to sow a seed, to partner with the vision he was given. Honestly my seed seemed quite inconsequential at the time. Unfortunately we think this way sometimes, instead of realizing that every seed sown, every prayer, every encouraging word means something!

Fast forward to today, March 10, 2021. What do I see while scrolling through my Instagram? Pastor Jamal Bryant with 2 huge semi trucks full of supplies getting ready to roll to Mississippi. He then speaks about his Fraternity Brothers and the AME Church helping with Distribution to those in need. Did I mention that more than double the 50K he wanted to raise in 3 weeks came in?

Pastor Jamal Bryant moved by faith, and God provided the partnerships to make a greater impact. I am so grateful that there are so many people willing to step out on faith and bring others of us along to impact this world in awesome ways. Thank you Pastor Bryant.

Who can you partner with today? Some one needs the blessing that only you can initiate and provide. You have what it takes. Partners are out there waiting for you to get started. Begin today!!

With a Grateful Heart,

Rev. Stephanie
