I was going through some old handouts that the old directors of Campus Crusade for Christ at Eastern Kentucky Unversity gave to a group of us they were training to teach Bible studies.  I came upon a couple articles that were a good reminder to me about what my ministry with CRU and at church should be focused on, Christ.  It seems so simple but is that really the message of our ministry.

In and article “Thoughts on Christ Centered Ministry” by Rick Howe he says

I. The Key Question

What is the “sub-text” of our ministries? That is, when are around us, our weekly meetings, our small groups, our conferences and projects, etc. what is the subtle, yet clearly heard message beneath our outward messages?

This message can often be some like: “Aren’t I great?” or “Aren’t we great?” or “Don’t we do things great around here?” (Tim Keller, Redeemer Press)

We need to strive to make the main text and the sub-text of our ministries: “Isn’t Christ great?”

If we do not purposefully seek to keep Christ in the center of our ministry, something else will be there- small groups, evangelism, target areas, you name it.

In fact, I think the number one question every CD(campus director) should ask himself, all the time, every day, is “what is the sub-text of my ministry? Are people walking away thinking “Isn’t Christ great!”

The other day Kenneth introduced to me some lyrics of this Reformed Hip-Hop Artist named Shai Linne, and right then and there i knew i had to buy this guy’s new album called “The Atonement.”  His lyrics are so powerful and definitely shows what his focus was in making this new album of his, The Cross of Christ.  There are two interviews of him talking about “The Atonement” so check those out below. 



“It’s an album that is centered on the person and work of Jesus Christ.” – Shai Linne

Not only should you listen to those interviews but you should buy the album.  The album is Definitely good and worth the $11.50 you spend.  So get that at http://www.lampmode.com/.  My personal favorite song is “Atonement Q+A”, where Shai defines all those theological terms that everyone throws around, while putting it all together with a beat in a rap.

“Adoption means God is now my father, i got the hottest Papa and by the Spirit holla Abba” – Shai Linne
