John Enslow Video Bio
It’s rare when we can receive our making and apply our giftings as God sees them. And even more rare is to function in our New Creation: His idea and life expressed and lived through us. It only happens in absolute obedience to His will, and this has been my express choice.Over the last twenty years of my living process to know Him, the forming of Shulamite Ministries has amazingly coincided. As I have personally emerged into His idea of me, He has also moved to develop this ministry around and under me. What started out as an evening Bible study, and a basket full of unmarked tapes, has evolved into a worldwide ministry that has touched thousands. Basically, the ministry and I grew in stature together.Whether in book publishing, web design or editing the weekly Shulamite Podcast
, I function in this ministry to make it beautiful. I am very much a servant-leader with a shepherding heart. You see, in my preparation, I spent years in the field with actual sheep and goats learning how to care for and shepherd them. It’s hard to shepherd from a distance or while remaining detached, so the result of this process was a heightened awareness of those around me and a softening of my approach. My daily functioning in Shulamite Ministries is very much the same—I’m a pastor and I care greatly for the flock God has given me, both near and far.This ministry’s outreach has both encouraged and evoked the deeper development of my artistic, technical and literary skills – and these skills are applied to the ministry needs immediately! And so it is that I find myself working daily with Martha
, blogging at GetAlongWithGod.com
, hosting and editing the weekly Shulamite Podcast
, and working with an amazing web dev team
to continually update the Shulamite app
and our many sites. These are just a few of the ways that the Lord uses me to make all of the ministry’s content ever more available to all of you.
“Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.”–St. Augustine
