The biblical letter of 2 Corinthians may seem like a ministry guide for pastors, evangelists, and missionary's, but it's actually Paul's encouragement for the average Christian. This Groundwork series studies Paul's description of the ups and downs of his apostolic ministry as he describes it in 2 Corinthians to embrace his encouragement toward faithful discipleship and continued witnessing simply through personal testimony of daily life, and his reminder of God's strength despite the challenges we might encounter to the gospel message.
