Pastor Nick shared a short video of a man who was challenged to share his faith by his mentor and how that spurred him on to get involved as a missionary.  From this Pastor Nick urged us to pour ourselves into others and challenge them to grow in their faith though at times it might require wading out into the deep-end of the pool.  He also asked us to consider how we could include others in the ministry work here vs just doing it ourselves.
