2018 Annual Report for Servants of Grace

by | Dec 19, 2018 | Resources, Featured | 0 comments

2018 has been a great year for Servants of Grace in a lot of ways. We’ve not only experience growth across our social media channels but also traffic wise where we grew across the board in unique visitors and page views. Also, our audio downloads went up again this year, and thousands of people viewed our issues of Theology for Life. We have much to give thanks for, including the addition of a new staff member Laura Lundgren this Fall who became our Women’s Editor. You can get to know Laura and hear us talk about Servants of Grace in 2019 here.

At the outset of this report, I wish to begin by giving thanks to the Lord. He continues to use this ministry, and for that I am thankful.

I also wish to say thank you to my wife. She is a constant source of encouragement to me, and without her, it would not be possible to execute Theology for Life Magazine. This past year we did the following issues:

January 2018: Engaging with God: A Foray into Prayer and Spiritual Warfare https://servantsofgrace.org/theology-for-life/engaging-with-god-a-foray-into-prayer-and-spiritual-warfare/
April 2018: From Alpha to Omega: A Portrait of Jesus https://servantsofgrace.org/theology-for-life/from-the-alpha-to-the-omega-a-portrait-of-jesus/
July 2018: Biblical Gender and Sexuality: An Expose On Manhood and Womanhood https://servantsofgrace.org/biblical-gender-and-sexuality-an-expose-on-manhood-and-womanhood/
October 2018: Expository Preaching: Scripture and the Church https://servantsofgrace.org/expository-preaching-scripture-and-the-church/
Forthcoming December 2018: Loss and Grief.

Podcasts
This past year I was able to do a lot of podcasts for the Equipping You in Grace Podcast, Ask Us Anything Podcast, and for our sermon feed. The following list is only from Equipping You in Grace and represents in no particular order our most downloaded episodes for 2018. We also added a new podcast with Matt Perman called Getting Unstuck with Matt Perman.

In 2018 we continued to do series here at Servants of Grace. We are finishing up a series on Discovering Joy in Christ During the Holidays in the next week.

We also did a series geared towards Pastors’ Wives we called Letters To The Hearts of Pastors’ Wives.

We also continue to do Bible Series here at Servants of Grace. Here are the following series we did this year:
Psalm 119: https://servantsofgrace.org/category/the-gospel/the-gospel-and-the-christian-life/psalm-119/
1 Peter: https://servantsofgrace.org/category/the-gospel/the-gospel-and-the-christian-life/1-peter-the-gospel-and-the-christian-life/
2 Peter: https://servantsofgrace.org/category/the-gospel/the-gospel-and-the-christian-life/2-peter-the-gospel-and-the-christian-life/
1 John https://servantsofgrace.org/category/the-gospel/the-gospel-and-the-christian-life/1-john-the-gospel-and-the-christian-life/

2019 will see us continue to do many new series. At the beginning of the year, we plan on doing a Bible series through the Sermon on the Mount. Laura is planning to do a women’s series on issues related to platform and stewardship. In April of 2019, we will do an issue of Theology for Life on doubt. In January on Equipping You in Grace we are doing a month-long series on biblical counseling.
