Moderators Wanted

Discussion in 'News Stand' started by Chad, Jun 5, 2006.

  1. Talk Jesus needs some new moderators and I am ready to add enough to create a full dozen: 12 apostles as in Scripture. I need 6 more moderators to fulfill this. Please read the below carefully.

    To Qualify:
    Reply with the following information (be clear and descriptive please)

    - brief but clear detail of what you believe in, your personal statement of faith
    - your physical location (Country / Timezone)
    - your computer and Internet skills
    - how often do you visit Talk Jesus?
    - your views, motives and goals on Talk Jesus
    - explain why you feel you should be a moderator
    - your age

    Basic Requirements:
    • Computer skills
    • Commitment (time)
    • One year as a member (give or take a few months)
    • At least 200 forum posts
    Note

    I ask God to guide me with His Holy Spirit in all my decisions. Do not feel offended if you are not chosen. Please do not ask me to make you a mod either. The sole decision comes from the Holy Spirit and I have my heart and ears open to GOD's guidance.

    Most likely I will select those who have been a registered and active member for at least 2-3 months.

    Keep This in Mind

    Talk Jesus is a precious "rock", GOD's online church, ministry and awesome community for all to fellowship. You should and must ask GOD for guidance yourself as well to see if He finds you right for a moderator position. Please do not reply / pm me telling me that GOD has chosen you. I love GOD and so do you, but anyone can tell me GOD has said this and that to him or her. It really comes down to GOD speaking to me and telling me who is right to choose. GOD will confirm this directly to me in prayer.

    This is a big responsiblity not a simple task. Say at least a quick, simple, humble and sincere prayer before entering Talk Jesus. Ask GOD in Jesus' name for wisdom, guidance and armour. You need patience in this position, wisdom, true devotion to GOD and to His online church here at Talk Jesus. If you feel even slightly not "100%" about this it is best to not reply and apply.

    1 Corinthians 4:1-3
    The Ministry of Apostles

    This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy. But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself.

    Moderator Statement of Commitment

    A Moderator position is one of accountability and commitment. Being a Moderator for sake of status is not the Lords will, nor is it helpful to the plans at Talk Jesus. Moderators must take this responsibility as a servant, committed to the cause of Christ while in the same way being committed to the order set in place by the leader of Talk Jesus.

    Ask yourself the following questions

    1. Do I believe in God and Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior and am I ready to serve Him in his house of meeting.

    2. Am I willing to continue in prayer for Gods will to be followed out in all areas of Talk Jesus, and maintain support for all Gods appointed leaders in prayer and deeds?

    3. Am I ready to commit my time to moderating Talk Jesus as a service unto God.

    4. Am I willing to accept all the guidelines set before me by the chosen leader at Talk Jesus knowing that his is not a self appointed position, but one established by God himself?

    5. Will I be pure and Christ like in all my actions, to be completely devoted in this manner as Christ taught me?

    6. Am I living a godly lifestyle, one not to be a stumbling block to fellow moderators and members in the body of Christ?

    Rules and Standard for Moderating

    Moderating this site is so members here will be allowed to openly share Jesus Christ without the threat of evil conduct interfering with the ability to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a free environment. The goal of appointing 12 Moderators to Talk Jesus is both biblical in its responsibility, but also needed in the daily task of this web site.

    Jesus Christ appointed 12 Apostles to walk with and learn the truth of the gospel so the 12 could further the truth after he was finished his mission here on earth. But, when Jesus sent the Apostles out to minister, he sent them out two at a time , to pray and watch over each other in their service . When Jesus was here, the Apostles had all they needed. But Jesus also said that a day will come when they will need each other because he would go ahead and prepare a place for them in his Fathers house.

    Mark 3:14
    And he appointed twelve (whom he also named apostles) so that they might be with him and he might send them out to preach

    The reason for 12 now is so we as part of the 12 can have Godly counsel, and also stand under accountability to each other before the Father in Heaven. This accountability includes equal parts in the task of Moderating Talk Jesus. As a Moderator , we all must put in the time needed to allow us all to have our times of rest and prayer /family / vacations /etc.

    Moderation of Talk Jesus is a ministry! It should be treated as such! This is a 24/7 Christian fellowship. It also needs to be tended to 24/7 by at least 1 or 2 moderators at all times.

    These are just some guidelines to follow so that all the Moderators will be fresh in their Spirits, and able to handle personal responsibilities.

    Everything comes and goes in seasons, moderating is no different.

    Ecclesiastes 3:1
    For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven

    The commitment to be a moderator is a team commitment before God. We are one body, the church. We must become accountable to each other and equally responsible for serving God and Talk Jesus .

    Thank you in advance for all of you at Talk Jesus

    Your Brother in Christ,
    Chad
    Talk Jesus Ministries

     
  2. I would be happy to join in on what God is doing here. However I do respect and fully appreciate one of the 'basic requirements' i.e., "Few months as a registered member" disqualifies me - and I would wish it no other way!

    I am already feeling a Godly enthusiam for what God is doing here.

    Yours in Jesus, David.
     
  3. I have to agree with 4Jesus, I'd also love to be a part and be one of the moderators, remember us two in a couple of months time Chad :)

    much love
     
  4. Thank you for your replies. Please, let us get more responses.

    Pray pray pray!
     
  5. I am interested in becoming a part of TalkJesus Chad. How would you like me to comply with the descriptions you have requested? I donot have your email.

    Bob Lehmann
     
  6. Please reply to this thread with the details
     
  7. My name is Bob Lehmann and I am a non-denominational minister, ordained through United Christian Fellowship ministry. I am currently working on my Masters Degree in ministry and retired from teaching in a technical college.

    To Qualify:

    - brief but clear detail of what you believe in, your personal statement of faith

    I am a born again Christian and trained minister with a cause: Expanding God's Kingdom by becoming and developing wholehearted, fully-engaged followers of Jesus Christ.

    I believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His (agape) love which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians. Thus, I am committed to loving unconditionally all whom the Holy Spirit would join in fellowship, accepting without bias or prejudice, and forgiving as Christ has forgiven us.

    WHAT I BELIEVE

    The Bible:
    I believe the Bible, consisting of the 66 Books of the Old and New Testaments, to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2nd Timothy 3:16-17).

    The Trinity:
    I believe that there is one God, eternally existent in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (John 14:26, 15:26).

    The Lord Jesus Christ:
    I believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Acts 4:12).

    Redemption:
    I believe that for salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (1st Peter 1:18-19).

    The Holy Spirit:
    I believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling power and fullness, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life in the present evil world. (Acts 2:38).

    The Resurrection:
    I believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29).

    Spiritual Unity:
    I believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ. (Ephesians 4:3).

  12. I would like

    to be a moderator.I beleive Jesus died for my sins and his blood cleanses all sin away.I beleive you have to be Born again to get into Heaven.I'm 30 yrs old.I visit TJ 2 to 3 times daily.I would want TJ to be a place where a lost soul could come and see how awsome God is and Jesus and get saved.I want to make sure that's what this website is all about,reaching lost souls and blessing the Christian souls.I would do my best to see it would be that way.Thanks and God Bless
     
  13. I believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of the Living God. I believe that God became man in the form of Jesus Christ and died for the sins of the world and rose again. I believe that Jesus will once again return, sooner than we all realize. I am 30 years old and I live in the USA EST. My computer skills are pretty basic, I'm not a whiz or anything like that. I come to Talk Jesus every single day. Well, the past few months I haven't because of surgeries and stuff, but now that I am home and I am still sort of recovering, I spend pretty much hours at a time here. I consider this my church because right now I don't have a home church. I tried for years to find a safe haven to come to online for fellowship and fun with other believers online. It took nearly seven years. I believe that Talk Jesus is the first and only online christian community that is truly led by the Holy Spirit through Chad. As a member of Talk Jesus, I want TJ to become known world wide as online CHURCH that all who seek His face can come to and find what they are looking for. I have wanted to become more apart of Talk Jesus in some way but never knew how I could. Because I have ALOT of free time on my hands right now, I believe that being a moderator would keep my hands from being idle. Plus I believe that because Talk Jesus has blessed me in such a wonderfully great way, I should return the blessing by doing volunteering my time to make Talk Jesus an even better online community.
     
  14. Thank you all for your application. I will pray on this and let you know if GOD has chosen you to be moderator. God bless
     
  15. Still Looking?

    Hi Chad I was wondering if you are still looking for some moderators? I would be interested in helping out.

    I believe that the Bible is God's Holy word and that we should treat it with the respect it deserves. I believe that God sent His only son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for your sins and mine and that He rose from the grave 3 days later and is seated at the right hand of the Father. I believe that you need to ask Jesus into your heart and repent of your sins and be saved to gain eternal life. I also believe that we are to be fishers of men and should strive to bring others to the lord.

    I am in Northeast Georgia which is in the eastern timezone.

    I am very good with computers. I can figure out how to do most computer related issues but my main concern is reaching people through the website by directing them to God's Word.

    I visit Talk Jesus many many times a day.

    My views on this site are that I appreciate all the hard work that Chad is doing here for the Lord. I do feel that in some areas there could be more activity such as the Ladies area. I love coming to the site though and greeting new members and talking to others about the Lord.

    I would like to be a moderator because I like to help others. At my church I am ladies leader for Reformers Unanimous, a faith based addictions program. I also teach K5 Sunday School. The Lord has really put a burden on my heart for others and everyday I learn over and over the true meaning of love...it means the willing sacrifical giving of ones self to others without the thought of return. I only want to do what glorifies the Lord.

    I am 26 years old.

    Thank you for your time considering me as a moderator.
     
  16. Looking for a few good moderators at this time.

    Please see the original first post, updated to reflect requirements.

    Thank you, God bless.

    Chad--this is the truth---I was outside a few minutes ago doing chores, hoping that the baby wouldn't wake up while I was outside. God impressed upon me that I should be doing more. He showed me how happy I am when I'm ministering to people, especially women.

    Please consider this as an application. I am 46 years old and have been an active member of Southern Baptist for almost 16 years. I work in womens' jail ministry and preschool ministry at my church. I love the Lord and I have a heart for evangelism. For God wants that no one would perish, but that everyone would come to the knowledge of Him and take Christ as Savior and Lord.

    Thank you for considering me. I spend a lot of time at talkJesus, because I love it here. I know that God has placed you at the helm of this ministry. No matter what anyone else says, they are not the ones that God placed this ministry upon. Sometimes my opinion does not line up exactly like yours in 100% of your posts, (as I am also sure that you don't agree 100% with my views). This does not matter-- because I know that you and I have Christ in common, and Jesus is everything.

    um....my computer skills are lacking, but I am willing to learn. I have been a member since Nov. 05.
     
  18. Thank you sister for your response. I will contact you shortly after prayer
     
  19. Sorry to intrude on this thread Chad, but I'm so happy God chose Dreamer to be a moderator! Good luck auntie Dreamer!

    God bless

  20. Thank you brother Teraside. No intrusion at all. Yes, sister Dreamer is now a moderator. More moderators are welcomed to apply assuming the simple requirements are met. Thank you, God bless.
