Recently I spent a couple of days with Samuel Tolbert, the pastor/teacher of Greater St. Mary Missionary Baptist Church in Lake Charles, LA. [See the church at] I have known Sam for a half-dozen years or so, but this was the first time I had an opportunity to be with him in his place of ministry.
I did not notice until after our visit that on the back side of his calling card is the following: "Mission Statement: Greater St. Mary will bring people to Jesus and Membership in His family, develop them to Christ-like Maturity, and equip them for their Ministry in the church and life Mission in the world, in order to Magnify God's name."
I did not need to read that statement to know that Sam is living out the mission and vision God has for his congregation. It is obvious in everything he says and all the actions he takes. He is the embodiment of that mission statement. It is obvious he has a clear vision from God about the life and ministry of his congregation not only in its community context, but throughout the world.
You see it in his actions, in what he wants to show you, in the words he speaks. It is, indeed, a thing of great beauty. He casts God's vision for his congregation with great clarity. He networks to bring forth the resources needed to fulfill that vision. He inspires people to action to fulfill God's vision for the congregation. He engages in community leadership that attracts various resources from outside his congregation to join the spiritual and strategic journey that is apparent in Greater St. Mary.
Principles for Pastors
Rev. Samuel C. Tolbert, Jr. is truly living out the mission and vision God has for his congregation. What I observed in Sam speaks into several principles pastors need to embrace.
Sam Tolbert fits this latter statement.
