For His Kingdom: Vision 2023, part #2 | Pastor Mac Hammond | October 29, 2022

Vision sets the stage for where we will go in life. That’s why it’s important to set a vision for our individual lives and our life as a church family! That’s what Pastor Mac did this past weekend. He set the stage for where Living Word is going to go in 2023. Our outreach expansion will include our global church plants and expansion of The Winner’s Minute. Our in-reach opportunities will include taking care of our volunteers, taking care of those who tithe, a youth ministry remodel, and a revamped internship program. We are looking forward to this next year!

Dive Deeper:
Set a vision for where you want your life to go! It matters. It will take time and resources to accomplish your vision, so work hard and then wait patiently for it to come together. As you wait, expect that the vision God has given you will be accomplished. Keep your expectation connected to the vision and plan God has given you.

Living Word’s vision for 2023 starts with global church plants. We are excited to take the love of God beyond the four walls of the church and spread His love worldwide. We want to go into places that need Jesus, tell them about his great love, and then leave a church there, so the love of God can continue to shine on a daily basis. We want to plant beacons of hope throughout this world!

We also plan to capitalize on the growth of The Winner’s Minute from this past year and expand its reach to go farther. As we do, we want to create a partnership with the audience of The Winner’s Minute, so we can invest more in them spiritually and then provide them with an opportunity to invest in the expansion of God’s kingdom as well.

Lastly, we are going to continue strengthening our in-reach ministry to our church family. We want to remodel our youth ministry, celebrate our volunteers and our tithing family, and then invest in the next generation through a revamped internship program.

We are excited about all God has planned for us in 2023!
