CONNECTING WITH YOUR COMMUNITY                
  • We must follow Jesus' example as a leader. 
  • We need to re-embrace Jesus' original vision for the church, as 'salt' and 'light' and measure our progress against it. 
  • We need practical ideas and methods that will help us get off our island.  We need to build Bridges of Love.
  • Six bridges that can help reach our communities:
  •      1.  Research - Get to know intimately, the needs of your community.
  •      2. Prayer - Publicly repent for the disconnect from your community.
  •      3. Good Works - Concentrate your efforts and unite with other churches in your community.
  •      4. Teaching - Get out into the community and start mentoring and demonstrating the Love of Christ.
  •      5. Evangelism - Balancing Good Deeds with proclamation of the Gospel.
  •      6. Long-term Partnerships - Build strategic relationships.
