Equipping Others To Find Joy In Jesus 
Elder Letter by Paul Mermilliod  

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, Philippians 1:25 
we work with you for your joy, for you stand firm in your faith. 2 Corinthians 1:24  

One of the great privileges we get as God’s people is the joy of helping others find their joy in Jesus! This isn’t something that happens randomly or haphazardly. It takes intentionality, perseverance, and ongoing pursuit.  

We equip others through observation and engagement. As we observe one another’s pursuit of Jesus by the way we live our lives, we will become more aware of what needs to be added, expanded upon, or restored so that we can become more like Jesus.  

One of my great joys as a pastor at TCBC is to see and hear how so many of you are stepping into the lives of others to help them find their joy in Jesus and grow more like Him. You can hear a few testimonies of people within our family who are making an effort to equip others in the video above. If you’re trying to figure out how to help someone else take a next step of spiritual growth, inviting someone to join a Go Group with you is a great option. Another great option is to download a Blueprint Guide and go through it with someone else. I’m praying by God’s grace and help that we will become a church of disciples who make disciples for His glory!
