News: Fellowship of Believers Vision for Mission

How would you like to be a part of a group of people committed to supporting and encouraging ministry leaders – especially those who work with youth and children?  Just got off the phone with Norma Santos, one of the leaders of the Fellowship of Believers MC.  They met Tuesday night to finalize a decision that was pretty well in place last Sunday.  After study, prayer, fasting, conversation, listening carefully to one another, more prayer, meeting people in ministries, seeking God, paying attention, and more conversation, it became clearer and clearer and clearer:  God has been speaking and God is calling the Fellowship of Believers into a mission to bless and serve those who bless and serve youth and kids. The final articulated, agreed on, and approved statement isn’t nailed down just yet.  I’ll be working on that and taking it to our Board for review and approval.  A little more conversation is yet to come – but the direction is clear.  The group is unified, joyful, and motivated.  This is an exciting time.

Here’s the lesson: A group grows stronger and deeper in God’s love and grace when they become very intentional about

  • being the people of God
  • who are seeking the guidance of God
  • while demonstrating the love of God
  • before doing the work of God.  

If you are leading a missional community and are trying to discern a vision for mission, wait patiently for the Lord.  And while you do, you may want to work through Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby.

Pray for us.  And we meet on Tuesday nights at 6:00!  If you want to learn more about the Fellowship of Believers, click here for contact information for Andrew, Norma, or Jesse.
