Last week I read a post from Terry Storch, Digerati Pastor at LifeChurch.tv and co-founder of YouVersion.com, discussing a new Church to Church team at LifeChurch.tv that will be focused on these values:
- We are all about the “capital C” Church!
- We will lead the way with irrational generosity.
- We are faith filled, big thinking, bet the farm risk takers!
Let these soak in and watch this 2 minute video with Craig Groeschel highlighting these values:
I've been a fan of LifeChurch.tv for many years as they are the pioneers of Church Online and have been so generous to share their resources with other churches and ministries. While in Youth Ministry I often used their OPEN resources that they made available for FREE!
Their generosity has been a great blessing to my ministry and it's my hope that I can in some way also cling to these same values and become irrationally generous in helping other ministries as well.
Can you imagine what the Church would be like if all local churches adopted these values?
What would happen if local churches adopted a mindset of cooperation rather than competition?
What if Irrational Generosity became the norm rather than the exception where serving each other as the Church (global church) rather than serving themselves as the church (local church)?
Jesus prayed this in John 17:23: "I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me."
May we be united in Christ generously sharing all that God has blessed us with so that the world may see His love through our love for each other!
