    I have a few, but I'll just post one at a time....

    Alright so I use to be a youth leader at my old church back when I lived in California.

    I would teach on tithe & offering, help plan youth events, involved in music ministry, etc etc.

    Well, one night, we had some special guests. They were from a girls home where the main focus was to help out teen girls who became pregnant at a young age. There were girls in that group ranging from 13-17.

    Now get this, I KNEW they were there, but I DIDN'T know they were pregnant. They all were seated in the back row so I couldn't see their bellies.

    Alright so I get up to teach tithe and offering and it was a good message--Basically, how do you expect to receive the blessings of God if you aren't even obeying His commandments, living right, etc. Then in the end as I'm about to pray over it, I start my little banter about living right and whatnot:

    "Okay peeps, do we have some awesome youth out there for God?? Are you giving your best? Living right? Not sleeping around and having sex?? Not drinking or doing drugs?? Ready to recieve the blessing of living right?? Alrighty then, so are we ready to give??"

    After each question I received an amen from all the youth so I thought everything was okay.

    If only I had had MY GLASSES ON--I would have seen those girls and how they were pregnant.

    After service was over, I remember going to the back to greet those girls and I saw just how LARGE and pregnant they were.....Oh my gosh, talk about feeling stupid. I basically called them out as not living right :( Yeah they were not, but there is a way to be diplomatic about it ya know? Why do you think they were there? To hear how they are living in sin? NO! To get answers to their problems--To hear about Jesus and how He can make it all better. To receive a life changing Word. Not a condemning one.

    Anywayz, I turned so red you would not believe it as I greeted those girls. They all were very nice to me but I'm sure they wanted to kick my butt >.<
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Just for the love of all things good - don't let your mind go faster than your mouth can keep up, you may get caught combining words that just SHOULD NOT BE.

    It's not cool to be in front of other Christians, and combine the words "fuss" and "ruckus" - I'll let you figure out how that turned out. :/

    Attempting to call the devil a "Fool" and "sucker" at the same time doesn't come out too nice either...

    This one isn't so much ministry related, but here goes...

    Some years ago when I was in college, I had to take a full time job. I was carrying 20 some credit hours and working about 60 hours a week on 3rd shift. So I got off work one Sunday morning and hurried to church. Knowing I was really tired, I went up to the balcony and sat as far in the back as I could. Unfortunately, it wasn't the very back row, the "rowdy" kids already had it occupied.

    To make a long story short...when I woke up, the service was over and everybody was gone. My head had fallen backward as far as it could go so that if my eyes had been open, I would have been looking right at the bratty kids who had been sitting behind me.

    How do I know they were bratty kids? My open mouth had been filled with paper-wads.:doh:

    Where do I start?
    Choking while drinking communion.
    Tripping over someone whilst they were slain in the Spirit.
    Raising my hands in worship and accidently knocking the person next to me in the face.

    One of the funniest things i've seen however, is my friend drop the FULL offering bag and have all the money scatter everywhere.

    For several years, I presented the gospel on the boardwalk in Jacksonville Beach, FL both in street witnessing and preaching. The city granted me a permit to preach on Saturdays. With an old police pa system installed in my VW Bug and a bullhorn speaker on the top of my car, I added a long length of wire to the input and walked up and down the sidewalk as I preached to folks who passed by.

    My work was noticed by the leader of a Christian coffeehouse located near the boardwalk, and one day he asked me to stand in for him at the County Jail. I happily accepted, and prepared my sermon praying fervently for God's wisdom and anointing. The Lord was very faithful and brought just that, convicting a few of the prisoners and granting them salvation. It was wonderful to see the Holy Spirit move.

    That episode went so well that my friend, Danny, asked me to again stand in for him several weeks later. Instead of preparing, I thought myself well able to present a word in my own strength.

    It was the most unanointed talk of my life. There was no response, and the guys merely took the opportunity to nap, not listen, as I had very little to offer without good heart and study preparation.

    It was a hard lesson learned, and one I will always remember.

    Lol he sure does. ^_^
    I forgot another one, it didn't happen to me personally, but it's funny anyway. Last sunday some of the kids were mucking around in their seats and then one fell backwards, then that triggered the next chair etc until one whole roll had fallen backwards off their chair.. it was like watching dominoes. Thankfully no one got hurt, but boy was it funny.

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! This thread is hilarious! I love it! XD

    We all have our moments ya know? Here's one for ya:

    I was working the West Coast Believer's Convention in 2006 as a cable grip for the cameras. One of my really good friends from church was working with me too and we were partners on the camera that moves around everywhere.

    So I had JUST finished praying before the service started and here we go--The music started, Len Mink came out and begun singing, leading everyone in worship. I was point person number one. Meaning, I was directly behind the camera out in the open--IN THE FRONT ROW.

    Well, when you follow the camera you aren't supposed to stand up. You have to literally crawl on your hands on knees or kneel [I purchased softball sliders not too long ago and wore those under my pants so I could kneel with no pain on that concrete floor]. But the way I was walking on my feet while crouched became twisted up somehow on the cord and my feet--And I FELL FACE FORWARD in front of the WHOLE CROWD and MAN did I feel stupid XD

    I got funny looks from ppl as I got up quickly and brushed myself off and kept moving, lolz! I had just finished praying that we wouldn't fall either!! And not even two minutes go by and I fall XD

    Keep 'em coming ppl, it's good to be able to make ppl laugh with our funny stories :]

    @ surfinangel: DUDE! AHAHAHAHAHALOLZ! You choked while taking communion? Oh man....I bet that was EMBARRASSING XD +rep for you :D

    I've told this story here before, but for those that have not heard it...

    One year for Father's Day, our pastor decided that he was going to give all the Fathers in the church a book by Ed Cole, "Maximized Manhood". So at the end of the service, he's talking about this book, and he says, "How many of you women want your husband's manhood maximized?" To which the entire congregation broke out in uproarious laughter! Not realizing what he had just said, he said it again. "Maybe you didn't hear me. I said how many of you women want your husband's manhood maximized?" By this time, people were laughing so uncontrollably that people began to RUN out of the sanctuary. My pastor's wife got up and ushered my pastor off the platform to his office (probably before he could say anything else to make it worse) as people left laughing...

    Later at dinner when he thought about what he'd said, he turned beat red and started laughing hysterically!

    That was HANDS DOWN the funniest thing that has ever happened at our church.

    And what was the problem?

    I don't believe the Bible allows females to preach, but if you're going to preach, then preach the truth. I've seen many people who have ended up getting saved as a result of preaching against sin.

    I had a communion faux pas at my wedding. The pastor handed me my communion bread, and I DROPPED it on the floor. I looked nervously at my pastor, and he whispered very discreetly, "Just pretend like you're chewing it." It's not easy to pretend like you're chewing a tiny piece of bread and make it believable!

    Thank you for being so understanding and thoughtful by pointing out the females "cannot preach" according to YOUR standards :p

    If God can use a donkey, he can use a woman--Get over it.

    As for what you are saying about calling out sin--I agree but have a different view point.

    See, a Pastor should not call out ppl in his congregation and preach about them publicly about the sin they have done unless the Lord told him too.

    Meaning, he shouldn't be like, "And soandso was caught in adultery!!!" etc etc.

    Honestly a Pastor is not there to humiliate his sheep but guide them. But if God tells him/HER to call out something based on Word of Knowledge or whatever--Then so be it.

    But I understand what you are saying. But I would never base my sermon off of a person's sin. That's for sure.
