This Blog is coming today to you because of the timing of the topic!  PLEASE be on the lookout for a message from Kip in the next couple of Days~Jill Scott, Mission Assistant

Do you wish you had more desire to be faithful to the Great Commission?  That your oft-complacency for the world would be replaced by a burning zeal for those who don’t yet know Jesus?  If so, let me invite you to be a part of something small (yet big) that could be a catalyst to help you truly become a “world-changer.”

Beginning this Sunday, October 11, we are beginning a six-week class called “Every International.”  If you desire to be an active part of Christ Community’s Vison Frame focus on International Care, or if you simply want to renew your love for the Lord and tell others about him more effectively, this class is for you.  It will be 11 a.m. until noon each Sunday morning until November 15th.  It will be a Zoom based class that will allow you to interact with other like-minded believers around a short video that we watch together.  These excellent videos were compiled by the joint efforts of the international ministries of Bridges (Cru), Navigators, and Intervarsity.  There will be other short compelling components to our time together each week as well.

When I find myself in “mission drift,” growing apathetic to God’s Great Commission calling on my life, I often see God use two things to help me rediscover my true north.  One is being around passionate believers.  Even though the class will be virtual, it will be set up in such a way that interaction with international/missions-minded followers of Christ will bring example and influence to bear on your life.  The other corrective that God brings my way in times of complacency is engagement with the mission.  In other words, by learning and relearning practical truths and putting them into practice, I find my spiritual temperature rising and my joy returning as I join other believers in reaching out to internationals and whoever God brings my way who needs good news.

Imagine the world-shaking impact that could come about if dozens of Christ Community Jesus lovers said yes to getting further equipped in evangelism, missions, and international care.  Picture in your mind’s eye what it would be like for our friends like Saeed (pictured above far right) if they deeply experienced Jesus in our kindness, cultural sensitivity, and hospitality.  Ponder afresh how their coming to Christ in faith would change your life as well!

If you sense God’s Spirit inviting you to reengage with that which is of eternal value in a transient world, then please go to ccames.org/events and register under Every International.  May the Lord of the Harvest be pleased to use us for his glorious purposes, for our joy and his glory!
