For His Kingdom, #2: Vision 2024 | Mac Hammond
Pastor Mac laid out the vision for this coming year, to reach the exciting goals God has set before us. Goals were set for our three entities: LWCC, the church; LWA, Living Word Academics; and LWI, Living Word International. Highlighted was our emphasis on the Lord’s command to “go into all the world and make disciples of all the nations,” which will be accomplished through global church planting.
The vision for Living Word Christian Center (LWCC) for Vision 2024:
1. To construct a place designed to minister to our special-needs children
2. To create a “Connection Center” where people can connect over coffee and treats
3. To rejuvenate the Discipleship Intern Program with a redesigned curriculum
4. To continue the Winner’s Minute to compel people to check out Living Word
The vision for Living Word International (LWI) for 2024:
1. To plant ten churches this coming year
2. To raise up partners to generate a yearly budget to cover all of the infrastructure costs:
a. Raise monies for airtime in order to cast the vision for church planting
b. To create a call center to respond to callers
3. To purchase another plane, a Falcon 900
The vision for Living Word Academics (LWA): a five-year building program:
1. To build a wing on the east end of our building to accommodate a second gymnasium and additional classroom spaces
2. To create a ballfield on the west end, i.e. a stadium with a field that will accommodate our own football facilities, which can also be used for baseball and soccer
