************************************************************************************************

Greetings Dear Readers of Servants of Grace,

We, at Servants of Grace, are so thankful for you—our faithful readers. This past year has been one for the records! Our traffic doubled last year because of your readership. Our social media pages have experienced a great deal of growth, as well. We launched a new online magazine, Theology for Life, which has been very well received. We have lots to thank the Lord for and that includes you! Thank you for being such faithful supporters of Servants of Grace over the years!

I want to take a moment to outline what you can expect from us this next year. From the start, you can expect the same great content, dedicated to helping you grow in the Lord Jesus. Our writers are committed men and women who love the Lord Jesus and His Church, and want to see you grow in the Lord through the content that is published on this site. This next year, we’re going to address topics such as prayer, holiness, sin, end times, discipleship, the deity of Christ, the attributes of God, the character of God, an exposition of Titus, spiritual warfare and the Beatitudes. This list may change over the course of the year, but for now that’s what’s on the agenda. We’re constantly evaluating what type of “conversations” are occurring in the Church and blogosphere that need to be addressed. If you have suggestions to that end, please don’t hesitate to make them known!

As I mentioned earlier, Theology for Life magazine, which had it “maiden voyage” last year, is off to a great start. As you can imagine, putting it together is a lot of work. I want to thank my wife, Sarah Jenkins, who serves as the Design Coordinator and the Copy Editor. Without her hard work editing and making the design of the magazine, we wouldn’t have this magazine. (Thank you, sweetheart, for your hard work!) I also want to thank Mike Boling, the Associate Editor of Servants of Grace; Craig Hurst, the Book Review editor for Servants of Grace; and Dr. Brian Cosby (a very valued contributor) for all of their hard work, support, and ongoing help with Theology for Life. This next year, the magazine will (Lord-willing) focus on: sin, marriage, homosexuality, heaven, and false teachers/teaching.

Dearest readers, we’re so thankful to have you on board reading and listening to our content at Servants of Grace (and Theology for Life). We take your trust very seriously. We view it as a privilege that you’ve allowed us to speak into your lives, in a lot of different ways, and help you grow in Christ. We encourage you to continue inviting your friends to like our fan page on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and add us on Google Plus.

This year you can expect more of the same with great book reviews, relevant articles and helpful audio/video content. I’m excited about the adventure this New Year holds.

Once again, on behalf of the Leadership Team of Servants of Grace, I want you to know how grateful we are for you!! You continue to bless us by your faithful readership, wonderful encouragement, and sharing our articles. As we start this year off with a great series on prayer, my personal prayer for each of you is that the Lord would become even more precious to your hearts, minds, and ministry to others by His grace. Let’s have an awesome 2015, folks! I look forward to interacting with you on social media, and hearing how the Lord is using our content and your respective ministries for His glory this year! God bless each of you!!

For the glory of Christ,

Dave Jenkins

Executive Director, Servants of Grace Ministries
