American Indian Ministry Program at Bacone College

Osiyo Oginali (Hello Friend) –

On February 25, 2017 I was blessed to have been interviewed by Kyle Taylor, Office of Student Life and Enrollment Management Retention Specialist at Bacone College regarding my participation in the online American Indian Ministry Program. The interview video is available on Facebook at this URL: VIDEO .

After nearly 20 years in American Indian Ministry and even longer as a Believer, I have found the education through this program to be of tremendous value.

Kyle Taylor is one of the instructors at the college and I have had the pleasure of participating in three of his classes so far: Introduction to American Indian Ministry, Contextualized Native Ministry and Native American Hermeneutics. The classes are available on campus and online utilizing Zoom as a virtual classroom. The Director of the American Indian Ministry Program is Dr. Leroy Thompson.

This video, Interview with Rev. Jeny RunningBrook Covill, a Scholar/Practitioner in the American Indian Ministry Program at Bacone College. #AIMP, is one of several produced to help spread the word about this amazing program. It is a 4-year degree program and scholarships are available for students who live on campus. Please visit the Bacone College website or the American Indian Ministry Program at Bacone College Facebook page for more information.

Again, I encourage you to watch this video. CLICK NOW TO WATCH.

Wado (Thank you)

A Tender Heart

HOW OFTEN are you overwhelmed with compassion for someone else?

Mark 6:34 says, “When Jesus got out of the boat, he saw the large crowd that was like sheep without a shepherd. He felt sorry for the people and started teaching them many things.”

Those involved in First Nations ministry need to have the Creator’s tender heart toward our Native people.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native American people and those in Native Ministry will reflect the Creator’s heart of compassion.

Isaiah 57:18 says, ” I know what you are like! But I will heal you, lead you, and give you comfort.”

2 Corinthians 2:7-8 says, ” When people sin, you should forgive and comfort them, so they won’t give up in despair. You should make them sure of your love for them.”

Ask our Creator to fill the hearts of those serving in Native Ministry with His compassion for our First Nations people.

I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.

Isaiah 49:13; Isaiah 57:18-19; Zechariah 7:8-9; Hebrews 10:34; Hebrews 13:3; Matthew 25:34-40.
