Today, we are going to look at the first of five legacy lanes and the 32 by 32 vision in greater detail. If you haven’t already please read the rest of our vision series before this post. We have been looking at our vision frame over the last two months on the blog and it all leads to these five weeks.
I want to start our March email update out by apologizing to those of you who receive our physical prayer newsletters. I aim to get those sent off in the last week of the month, but February is short and I got busy so you are probably just now receiving them. I’m sorry I didn’t get them sent out in time. Thank you so much for praying for us. If you are not receiving a physical newsletter in the mail and would like to please email me and I will get your name on the address list.
With that said, here is our March edition of the Ascent prayer team newsletter. We have had a thrilling month with some exciting answers to prayer requests and also some new requests that we would love for you to join us in praying over.
I am excited to spend some time talking about our future in part 7 of this vision series. Our vision frame all comes together to paint a picture of the future. We know that our future will ultimately be determined by God and that the future He has for us is far better than any picture we could paint for ourselves.
However, we believe it is wise to humbly seek after a God glorifying vision. Today, we are going to begin outlining our five legacy lanes. These are the five areas of influence that we believe God wants us to focus on. There are many great ways a church can be involved in impacting the world for Christ. These are the five ways we believe God is calling us to make an impact.
“I am more ready than ever to plant a church” -Me (three years ago)
I thought I was ready, but really I was just arrogant. I think more than anything I was interested in planting a church out of selfish desire. Now in the middle of church planting I have a much different perspective. I praise God for the obstacles and opportunities He placed in front of me that forced me to wait.
