Introduction: Emily Scates

(Emily Scates) #1

Hi everyone!

I completely stumbled upon this website by accident this morning as I was looking for new ways to evangelize in order to stretch out of my comfort zone. I have heard of RZIM because we had several speakers come to our church to speak on apologetics, Women in the Bible, and more. To say the least, I was blown away and had a thirst for more. So when I saw this link, I thought, “What an amazing opportunity!”
I am a Pastoral Resident at a church in Dallas, so I am in the middle of learning everything, from different areas of ministry to preaching and leading prayer in services. I never saw myself going into ministry, but the Lord will not let me get out, and now just the thought of leaving burdens my heart. God is so good…and He has a sense of humor!
I have so much to learn, I want to be used all I can, and I think it is by no accident I “stumbled” across this website. I am looking forward to meeting many of you. God bless each of you who are already leading by example, “striving and toiling,” just like Paul, to proclaim the Good News. I am excited to see what God brings!

In Christ,
