Last night Vision Baptist Church was honored to lay hands on Philip Bassham in recognition of the work of God in his life. 15 other men of God with literally several hundred years of ministry experience took 3 hours to spend with Philip challenging, encouraging, loving, and fellowshipping with Philip.
Then at 7 pm the church came together for a very beautiful service. It was a wonderful time.
We are very excited for Philip and Lori. We all look forward to what God will do with them on the mission field and where ever God may take them in ministry.
Philip has worked with me for over 6 years now. He was instrumental in every thing that happened in the formation of Vision since the planning stage began. We are honored to have yet another set aside for the gospel ministry that calls Vision their home!
It was a great honor of mine to be ordained last night by my church and 15 other ordained ministers that sat on my ordination council.
I am very glad that the Lord has put me into the ministry, called me to preach, and directed us to Thailand and I count it a great privilege to have friends in the ministry that would demonstrate confidence in me by laying hands on me and commend me to the Lord.
Here is the blog post by my pastor.
