"When I was called to Hampton Roads to start my church, it was less the idea of a church with four walls, but more the idea of being a pastor to the marketplace."
Hampton Roads, VA (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
Pastors Tim and Rodica Lambert proudly announce the release of the 26th annual edition of The Shepherd's Guide for Hampton Roads. A lot of hard work and dedication goes in to publishing the The Shepherd's Guide, and the Lamberts, as well as the advertisers, couldn't be happier with the results.
Born in Georgetown, South Carolina, Pastor Tim Lamber moved to Hampton Roads, VA in December of 1992. Shortly after moving to Hampton Roads, he founded the Christian Embassy International Church, now one of the fastest growing churches in the area. Rodica Lambert is Tim's co-pastor for their church. A devoted businesswoman of faith, Rodica epitomizes female power and influence in the Christian workplace, especially in the field of church as a business. Tim and Rodica have been married for 16 years. In a short interview with Tim, he quoted "...when I was called to Hampton Roads to start my church, it was less the idea of a church with four walls, but more the idea of being a pastor to the marketplace." Actively dedicated to the Christian community, Tim has been the president of the Hampton Roads local chapter of the Christian Business Network for over a year and a half. It suffices to say that Tim and Rodica are dependable, sincere, and trustworthy people, both in their business and as people of strong faith in Jesus Christ. Tim and Rodica have had so much success in their journeys through business, and life in general, because they never falter in keeping God at work. Having faith will never fail.
Of all the business directories, The Shepherd’s Guide is the largest Christian business directory in the world. In a nutshell, The Shepherd’s Guide’s mission statement is to list every Christian business, church, ministry, etc., in order to build and strengthen the Christian community. Featuring a logo you can trust, The Shepherd's Guide's ultimate goal always has been and always will be to connect Christian families with trusted local Christian businesses, schools, churches, ministries, etc., and to cater to it's unique and specific niche. The Shepherd's Guide has generated many success stories for local businesses all around the country. When asked to name one, Tim mentioned a success story he heard that stuck with him forever. An advertiser in The Shepherd's Guide Hampton Roads had been hit hard by the suffering economy, and was extremely close to being forced to shut down his business. Since advertising with The Shepherd's Guide, he has had to hire more employees to handle business!
Tim and Rodica feel extremely blessed to have The Shepherd's Guide in their lives, and are satisfied in knowing that they are reaching their goal - to help local Christian businesses by connecting them with other Kingdom-minded people seeking to utilize their services. The Lamberts and local advertisers remain grateful for the success and satisfaction The Shepherd's Guide has given them and, more importantly, remain grateful to God for blessing them with the opportunity.
