My cohost Dan Stegeman and I sit down together to discuss the history, the purpose and the impact of the first ten years of Fruitful Vine Ministry. Did you know the name comes from Genesis 49:22-24( NIV)? Joseph is a fruitful vine, a fruitful vine near a spring, whose branches climb over a wall. With bitterness archers attacked him; they shot at him with hostility. But his bow remained steady, his strong arms stayed limber, because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel. That is what we want to see for pastors and ministry leaders. We know many find themselves in the throws of a battle. With bitterness, archers even within their own ranks attack with hostility. We believe even in such realities, the pastor, the international worker, the ministry leader can remain steady, strong arms limber, because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel.
