Happy New Year!
I’m so thankful for the fresh vision and passion the Lord has given me for our church in 2023. This vision flows from God’s passion that all people know Him and are reconciled to Him. Our God-given responsibility is to help people connect with Christ. With this purpose in mind, we are going to prayerfully and intentionally pursue the formation of a culture of evangelism.
Our pursuit is going to involve intentional times of equipping. These equipping times will be designed to deepen our knowledge and comfort level in sharing the Gospel. Some equipping will be done during our Sunday morning services and a lot of it will occur during our Wednesday night Connect Groups.
Our pursuit of a culture of evangelism will be built upon our current culture of prayer. God will empower our witness as we ask Him for boldness and courage. In the coming months we will be praying in specific ways related to our 2023 focus. We all know Christ today because someone shared the gospel with us. Now we get to be that person for someone else!
