Investing In Leaders

Over the last 2 months I have been meeting with two groups of 3 guys in the mornings. We are going through a book about discipleship and reading through the new testament together. This time has been very refreshing for me to watch a group of guys catch the vision God has for their lives and their families. I am excited about watching other men get engaged in the work of our church and take their relationships with Christ to the next level. I believe that the breadth of our leadership base as a church determines the height of our ability to reach our community. Jesus strategically invested in a group of people who carried the vision and reached the masses. I want our church to stay focused on reaching spiritual explorers and equipping those who already follow Christ. The work of the church is a both and deal! All of these men are praying for 3 people each who they will invite to Easter Sunday at South Bay. I am excited to see what God does through their lives in the coming days!
