A Model for Mission
I have enjoyed traveling to our six zones to share our mission as a district. The reception and attendance has been great. We as Alabama North Nazarenes are committed to make Christ like disciples. To do this we are committed to six priorities:
Passionate Leadership Development (Col. 1:9)
As a church we must identify, affirm, train and release new leaders into the harvest fields.
Passionate Church Renewal (Col. 1:10)
Jesus wants His church to be healthy and whole. Too many churches today have lost their passion. They have moved from mission to maintenance.
Passionate Theological Identity. (Phil. 1:9-11)
We must help people understand who we are and what we believe.
Passionate Missional Outreach (Col. 4:2,5)
Will we love them here as we will love them there? Will we reach them? God is a missionary God,
Jesus came with a redemptive mission, and the Holy Spirit empowers you and I to fulfill His mission.
Passionate Inspiring Worship (Ps. 95)
When worship is inspiring, it draws people to the service all by itself.
Passionate New Church Development (Col. 4:3)
New works must be continually started, because individual churches don’t live forever.
We must challenge our people to:
- Connect with God.
- Connect with one another.
- Connect our shared ideas.
- Connect our shared resources.
- Then take action to fulfill our mission.
Dare to Believe,
Greg Story, Alabama North District Superintendent
