The key word that God has been putting on our hearts for us at this time is ADVENTURE!
God wants to call us afresh to the adventure in faith that he has for each of us and as a church. For some of us that may be a new call to come to know God and begin this adventure, for others it may be dusting off the call to adventure that perhaps we have parked on the shelf for a while.
The church should be one of the most adventurous places on earth. We are Gods people and as such we should be casting off from safe shores where we rely on our own strength and knowledge and stepping out in faith in God on unfamiliar paths.
The family of churches that we are a part of, Newfrontiers, started and has continued in this way. Terry Virgo and many others have consistently and radically stepped out where God has led them.
We need to be taking risks, chancing failure, dreaming of possibilities and being innovative in the way we move forward.
As individuals we have a choice to make; do we prefer the static life of middle-class respectability or the risky, wild and sometimes erratic undertaking of following Jesus?
As we have prayed into this whole area of adventure we have felt God highlight three broad areas that He wants us to adventure in. They are His Presence, Mission and Discipleship.
We look forward to all that God has for us in this season.
