1 Corinthians 15:57-58
Join us for a time to refresh your relationship with God, grow in your gifting, and realign your ministry
R – RECONNECT WITH GOD
Get away and invest time in your personal walk with the Lord. Your ministry to others will only be as healthy as your own relationship with God. Take time to be refreshed.
I – IMAGINE WHAT GOD CAN DO AGAIN
Burnout can dull the vision that God gave you when He first called you to serve in ministry. Take a step back and see your ministry again with eyes of expectant faith.
S – STRIVE FOR MORE IN YOUR MINISTRY/FAMILY
Don’t settle for a comfortable ministry if the Lord is opening new doors. Take opportunities to grow in your gifting, your leadership, and your service.
E – ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER
Spend time with other church leaders who are facing the same joys and challenges of serving in ministry. Share what God is doing in your lives and churches and be encouraged.
