THEME FOR 2019-20: “Next Level”
We thank God for leading us thus far as a ministry and we continue to seek His direction year after year for the purposes of focus and harnessing our energies in one direction by way of priority. Hence, every year we come up with an overarching theme for all our churches and ministries in local congregations to run with and build God‘s people to reach people and turn them into fully devoted followers of Christ.
The theme for the year 2019/20 is “NEXT LEVEL.” Paul says (2 Cor. 3:18), “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
God is speaking to us about moving to the NEXT LEVEL as a ministry. Perhaps we have been on this mountain for too long, or could it be that we have become comfortable at this level?
A key text for this theme is Isaiah 40: 29-31,” But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (v31)
Isaiah describes a progression that comes after waiting on the Lord: Their energy will be renewed so that they not only walk, but run and even mount up with wings as eagles that fly! God will take them for one level of glory to another level but secret is their relationship with God – that’s where their strength comes from!
I believe God would like each one of us to TAKE OUR LIVES TO THE NEXT LEVEL IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS;
Relationship with God
Our faith in God
Our Commitment to God
Our fruitfulness though God
Would you join us in this adventure as we move to the next level as a church, as a leadership, as an MLC, as an LTG, as a ministry team?
I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us! Shalom AM.
