Future of the Church

29 04 2010

Hey guys,

Sorry I didn’t get an email out last week.  I was at a leadership conference in California and had so much to share that I needed some time to process.  This was a conference for next generational leaders in the church and business.  I walked away from this time feeling convicted that we can not stand back and watch others define what the Church will be.  God has called our generation to stand firm on Truth, to hold on to the hope that God has a bigger plan, and to speak up when the Church is heading in the wrong direction.

What will be the future of the Friends church?

Is it simply to maintain unity and tolerate diversity?  Or is there something bigger and more exciting ahead?

What structures need to die in order for God’s work to be done and His Kingdom to reign?

A friend of mine posted this video on her blog about the Missional church and what shifts need to happen within the church to change our focus outward.

No matter what the Church looks like…one thing is certain.  The Church needs to have its foundation in Jesus Christ!

So this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
       “See, I lay a stone in Zion,
       a tested stone,
       a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
       the one who trusts will never be dismayed.

I will make justice the measuring line
       and righteousness the plumb line;
       hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
       and water will overflow your hiding place.

                        Isaiah 28:16-17

What’s next?!  What is God calling us to do in our generations to bring about the future Church?

I know a lot of you are in the midst of the craziness of finals and other life stuff.  We are excited about our upcoming College Camp at Quaker Haven in May and we want to make sure you all have a chance to come.  Registrations are for this camp are due ASAP and the fee gets more expensive after May 1st.  Since this is probably the last thing on your mind right now, we wanted to extend the registration deadline to May 10th.  So get your registrations in.  Its only $60 until May 10th, after that its $75.  Let me know if you’ve got any questions.

Have a great week!

To the King!
