Hope4Community leaders gathered on February 23 to reflect upon the previous year and all of the unplanned opportunities to serve students and families in 2020 because of Covid. All Hope4Community leaders were in attendance and they mutually shared upcoming priorities in their respective communities.
Each leader came ready to listen and encourage one another as they continued to lead the important work of city transformation through partner churches and other city domain leaders. Hope4Community leaders were encouraged with the message that they serve as part of one ‘Big C’ Church with several local mission stations throughout the city, and are called to shine brightly in their communities, with the ultimate goal to point people back to Jesus.
The gathering also focused on the Wheel of Change and the importance of implementing it in all we do in our communities with a humble spirit of leadership that is demonstrated primarily through engaged service. The Wheel of Change has three functions; to engage leaders of good faith and good will, to build the capacity of others, and to develop joint initiatives.
The discussion also focused upon our community’s greatest needs such as food insecurity, housing and mental health. Please pray for our Hope4Community leaders and our communities as we collaborate to spread this living hope in the communities we love and serve. Though hopelessness can be found throughout our community and the world, there is always hope to be found in Christ!
