ABOUT THE MINISTRY
John 6:16-21 Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing. So when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near the boat; and they were afraid. But He said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.” Then they willingly received Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going.
The idea for this ministry was formed quite a while ago during a morning drive to a client site in Hancock, New Hampshire. I was working as a carpenter at the time and was enjoying a leisurely trip through the back woods and dirt roads. Suddenly, like a flash of lightning, a vision of a row boat on a shoreline somewhere with a guitar shaped oar leaning against it appeared in my mind’s eye along with the words ‘Michael, row the boat ashore’.
