ARE YOU READY?

COMPELLED

We wanted to highlight that a life lived in abandonment to Christ is one that is often full of hardships.
Paul highlights this exceptionally through his letter in Acts 20 and we hope that this theme rings true in your heart as you are compelled by the Spirit to live on mission for Christ.

We are transformed inwardly and we act outwardly.

COMPELLED by the Spirit for one purpose: to testify to the good news of God's grace

Our heart behind the theme this year came from a position where we felt led to speak into how we are both called and sustained on mission for Christ.

We wanted to bring attention to the source that motivates us to live on mission and break the misconception that missions are a singular event or trip.

We are called to live on mission for Christ.

In this posture of compelling, we wanted to highlight how missions aren't always comfortable and a life lived in abandonment to Christ is one that is often full of hardships.

Paul highlights this exceptionally through his letter in Acts 20 and we hope that this theme rings sound and true in your heart as you are compelled by the Spirit to live on mission for Christ wherever you might find yourself.  

ACTS 20:17-24

17 From Miletus, Paul sent to Ephesus for the elders of the church. 18 When they arrived, he said to them: “You know how I lived the whole time I was with you, from the first day I came into the province of Asia. 19 I served the Lord with great humility and with tears and in the midst of severe testing by the plots of my Jewish opponents. 20 You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house. 21 I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.

22 “And now, COMPELLED by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there.

23 I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. 24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
