Professional Central Team
Professional Central Team
Frankly speaking it is all God’s grace. I am not doing anything special. Members of the professional Ministry team have a burning zeal in their heart to keep their movement alive. They are all inspired by love of Jesus which binds them. They share, pray, intercede and find time to be with lord in spite of their busy schedule. It is very easy to guide such a group. My role is to be with team and to support them and motivate them. At times I feel that I am not able to give my time fully because of my personal limitations. However I find time to meet their spiritual needs. Team members also find time to interact with me occasionally.
What are the qualities that you see in these people?
Members of the professional ministry team are self motivated because of the Jesus Youth background. They have a burning zeal to be with Jesus and to share Jesus in their work place in spite of their busy schedule. They have an urge to pray. They are committed and compassionate. They want to live a meaning full life centered on Jesus. Considering work culture of the modern day professionals, a professional Ministry is a necessity. Often these people especially those in the IT sector are busy with their work. Work pressure is so high that their social and spiritual lives are at stake. They may feel the need to interact with people and God but most of the time they are helpless. So the ministry as such is a good move to strengthen the spiritual and social life of the modern professional. This will give them a kind of relief and proper meaning to life
How did you respond to your call to become the first coordinator of Ministry?
It was not a sudden process, a gradual one. During my 3rd year of employment, few thoughts about professional ministry started to grow in my mind. But I tried to keep me as a supporter and asked to coordinate the activities. But Later I understood that its my responsibility to initiate the ministry activities across Kerala. Then I asked him , how I will manage my hectic work, family responsibilities, PG studies with ministry activities. I got his word ‘My grace is enough for you: for power is at full stretch in weakness’. (2 cor 12:9)
I witnessed this verse in my life . Everything went beautifully through Him.
How do you stand for the Lord inspite of Hardships? Hardships mean balancing Profession, Family, Jesus Youth Doctors prayer group?
Hardships are an integral part of Christian life. They are good in that, if you face them with God's grace, they help you to grow in Christ. It is an extremely delicate situation in life currently, to balance between responsibilities at home as a son, husband and father and at the same time fulfill professional responsibilities. But as said in Rom 8:18 I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. The more effort I put in, the more God helps me to balance everything. Praise God!!
