2017 Vision

I am excited to see what God is going to do in our lives starting right now! We have been focussing on the development of young leaders who love Jesus and love the people in their community. I am specifically excited by what I saw happening this Wednesday at our Bible Study where our students began sharing their desire and opportunities they had for specific friends to come to Jesus. That is exciting to me!

We began in January in our Bible study once a month to build a vision statement for our group and eventually through a process of understanding our core values came up with:


This vision is also informed by a couple specific verses from the bible! The first is:

1 Corinthians 16: 13-14 (NLT)

Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything in Love!

This speaks to our passion for Jesus that we have a fervency in spirit that rejoices in Jesus. So we live on guard, faithful, courageous, strong, with love that comes from hearts devoted to Christ and his goodness. We passionately worship Jesus in every way in every portion of life standing firm in our knowledge and belief in Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:20 (NLT)

So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”

I love that we are ambassadors for Christ! He makes his appeal through us! So we go out to our world to our classes and live life with our friends as ambassadors for Christ and he makes his appeal through us. That means that we have to have some Holy boldness and make the appeal “Come back to God.” Yes we do with our lifestyle but we also need that Holy Boldness to say “Come back to God”! I love that here it is in quotations it is spoken!  So we will speak!
