 Women in Ministry: Part 6

Meet Adley Gray. Adley is a senior at Amarillo High School. As I have, over the last few months, spent time noticing women at Central who minister, more and more, Adley has come to my attention. She is active in church and youth group. She is kind to everyone! She does not know a stranger. She takes alone time, just her and God, for spiritual renewal and self-reflection. She works tirelessly on various mission fields, both local and foreign. Adley ministers!

The Practice of Listening

by Adley Gray

Growing up as the child of a minister and a counselor, I learned some very important lessons about ministry. The most impactful lesson has been that ministry doesn’t always look the way you expect it to.

The good news is that we serve a God who adores all of His children and longs to use the gifts He gave them in ways that benefit His greater purpose.
