Bus ministry

Sword of the Lord also has a new pamphlet available on how to start up bus ministries. “Welcome to the Bus Ministry: An Introductory Guide to the Bus Ministry” is a 21-page booklet. Author Joel Fugate has more than a decade of experience in a bus ministry; he started from the bottom and served in every position, according to his author biography.

The booklet covers these topics: why bus ministries are needed; worker requirements; what to expect; the role of the bus worker; working in a class; and why you should not quit.

“The purpose of bus ministry is to bring to Jesus people who would not be able to come of their own power,” Fugate writes. “There are boys and girls in your neighborhood that would come to church if someone would get them. There are men and women out there that are trapped in a life of sin which has taken away from them everything that they had.”

Both books are available online at or by calling 800-247-9673. Or, visit the Sword’s bookstore at 224 Bridge Ave. in Murfreesboro.
