I am taking a leap of faith and putting this out to all who read this blog or come across it from other sources.
Purpose: I am in the process of completing my master’s degree from Sioux Falls Seminary, and my hopes is to become a pastor. I have had the opportunity to preach at a few churches this year and would like to continue to preach and deliver the word of God through my time in seminary. I am currently working on a putting together a series on issues in the church and how to address them; articles can be found on this blog, and podcast episodes at Undying Light. Once this series is completed, I will break it down into a seminar style teaching on how the Church should engage the false teachings spreading through Christianity.
Beliefs: I stand on Sola Scripture, scripture alone. I accept invitations on a first come first serve basis. I will prepare a message at the church’s discretion, or write a sermon based on biblical doctrine at my discretion; with church approval. I do not cater to popular preaching styles that cater to the people; I am not an ear tickler. I will come preach the word of God to the best of my knowledge and ability. I hold the word of God to be infallible, inerrant, and treat it as so from the pulpit. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God2 may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
Dates and travel: I am available most weekends for travel with enough notice. I would like to request at least two weeks’ notice to prepare content and travel. As of now, I am unavailable to travel during the week as I have a full-time job.
Expenses/Compensation: My biggest request would be to get reimbursed for the mileage at the national per-mileage rate is. If the request would require me to fly, tickets and parking would be requested. For compensation, I do not have a set amount, nor I would never demand a certain amount of dollars. As I progress into this field, I am only seeking support from the churches to keep this ministry moving. If the church wants to pay, I am ok, if they would rather do a good-will offering, that is ok as well.
Q&A: If I am requested to preach on my series, I will hold time afterwards for question and answer.
Contact: My e-mail is alexzenk86@gmail, this is the easiest way to get ahold of me.
P.S. I will link my YouTube channel that has my recent sermons, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDKLz62-s49oN_gQIm7a4tw?view_as=subscriber
Thank you and God bless,
