our mission strategy
30X, 60X & 100X
The parable of the sower is the inspiration behind our circuit strategy. Much of the seed sown was lost due to the ground being unprepared, hard and unproductive.
Pathway - hard place which is trampled and nothing grows
Rocks - shallow places, seed germinated but had no root and so withered
Weeds -troubles, cares and pleasures of this world chocked the like, no fruit
However some seed fell in good soil, the seed germinated and its roots grew deep and it produced a harvest 30X, 60X &100X.
Ultimately it is God who gives the growth, but we are reminded that Paul says, one sows, another waters, we have a part to play in helping the seed ﬁnd good soil and the best conditions, to nurture the young growth, until it produces fruit of its own.
To help our youngsters and equip our churches we need to help them navigate the plethora of worldview and help them to think critically through the various worldview and consider these from a Christian perspective - ﬁnding truth.
Consider some of the 'ism’s young people are having to consider and navigate their way through today. Are parents and churches prepared and equipped to enable our young people think their way through this range of ideas and philosophies...
Skepticism - I’d believe if there was evidence
