Seed Sowers Ministry
Seed Sowers Ministry is solely designed for Christian leaders; those who sow into the lives of other. This ministry encourages Christian leaders to examine their spiritual life and to press for a deeper relationship with God. Seed Sowers Ministry advocates that deeper intimacy with God becomes more evident, as we live out the following principles:
- To love God with all that is within us; heart, mind, soul, and strength (Deut. 6:5)
- To model the perichoretic nature of our Triune God. (See: Ministry in the Image of God, Seamands, 2005). In doing so, we will realize that “God is closer to us than we are to ourselves” (St. Augustine, African theologian).
- To realize that growth is essential for everyone; even for leaders
As we make our relationship with God foremost, we are opened for daily cleansing and renewal. Any element that impedes us from operating at our fullest potential will be uprooted by the Master Sower (Christ).
The Holy Spirit facilitates this inward movement towards Christ. She opens our hearts to greater intimacy with the Father and Son; bringing abundant love, healing, and peace. Whereby, we are able to sow stronger seeds into the lives of those we have been commissioned to help.
It provides an environment that is conducive for spiritual growth. The believer’s heart is opened by the Holy Spirit for deeper intimacy with God. Through open discussions and the practice of spiritual disciplines, including silence, meditation, imaginative prayers, reading of scriptures, worship, and journaling, the believer is appropriated before Christ for inner healing.
Formational counseling welcomes the presence of the Holy Spirit. The prayer sessions are deeply engaged and driven by Spirit’s coalescing work. The spiritual director is merely the facilitator of this process.
Formational prayer provides a safe space for inner healing to occur. The believer is allowed the opportunity to share, listen, and to feel God’s heart in prayer.
