A FREE, 2-DAY NATIONAL DIGITAL EVENT FOR LEADERS WHO BELIEVE THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH MATTERS.
***SOCIAL DISTANCING AND MASKS REQUIRED
2020 Theme: Focus
So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3:1–3
Distractions threaten to pull us in disparate directions, blurring our focus so that we lose sight of what’s most important. We worry about budgets and buildings. Factions threaten to fracture our church’s unity. Chaotic voices clamor for our attention. To lead well, we must re-center our gaze—re-focus our attention—on our purpose for doing ministry. If you are interested, please email email@example.com RIGHT AWAY!
FOCUS ON THE MASTER
Why do we lead and serve? It’s worth remembering that our job is not to promote or make a name for ourselves, but to champion the person and work of Jesus. Is he the focus of our ministry? Is he the center of everything we do? Do we point people to Christ?
“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2
FOCUS ON THE MESSAGE
If Christ is our focus, his gospel must be our message. We tend to look at success through a haze of big numbers or expanding influence, but the real triumph is when lives are changed through the good news of salvation. Is the cross the focus of our teaching and preaching?
“. . . but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the Gentiles.” 1 Corinthians 1:23
FOCUS ON THE MISSION
Jesus gave his followers a mission—to make disciples. They preached the gospel worldwide and so must we, starting at home. They also met the needs, both spiritual and physical, of those they encountered. We too must strive for a holistic approach to serving. How are we embodying Christ in our community and world? “Then he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” Luke 9:2 CSB
