Why go to the International Conference on Missions in Richmond at the end of this month? Oct 29 - November 1?
Here are some suggestions:
I. To learn more about missions of course.
II. To recognize that the Kingdom of God is bigger than any of us.
III. The Worship. There is nothing like it.
IV. The students' passion to learn.
V. To be encouraged to "Go ..." fulfill the Great Commission.
VI. Opportunity to Pray. Pray for other missions and organizations and Christians around the World.
VII. Opportunity to Give. Give of your time, talents and treasure to the Kingdom.
VIII. To meet and make new friends. There is nothing like knowing the Church is united and working together.
IX. The Encouragement. Examples and joy of others being Jesus' hands and feet.
X. Knowing you're not alone in ministry/ church work/ making disciples that making a difference. It helps in fulfilling the Great Commission with the Greatest commandment.

This month we are teaching on why we love the church and how to love her. Last week was the introduction to the series. the next few weeks we will look at how to love by Community, serving, giving and sharing.
How are you loving your church. I love my church.

Camp Ministry is important. so far I've been to two weeks of camp and had my own children go to several weeks as well. Here is why Camp Ministry is important and why the church I serve invests in it:
I. Changed Lives. Helps people make that important decision of being Followers of Jesus.
II. An extension of the Church. Camp ministry is there to support, and be a resource for the local church.
III. Opportunity. Opportunity to serve, worship, and learn more about Him.
IV. Fellowship. Nothing says living life together like well living life together for a week, weekend with all the fun, food and get togethers.
V. Teaching. goes back to number 4: opportunity ..to learn God's Word, to share God's Word and to be Jesus' hands and feet to the World.
How about you? what would you say is important about Camp ministry? Gone this summer? I have. I look forward to next year to training teens to be those hands and feet of Jessu for the rest of the summer as they in turn become JCs. (Junior counsellors of sorts)
Let's all support the camp - so it can point people to well - Jesus. who is with me?
