I am a woman with a laser focus on a single mission:
I am on a mission to live my God-sized vision and inspire people make a difference in the world by erasing the lines that separate church and community. I believe that the key to a changed world is a changed community. And while I cannot change each community myself, my mission is to encourage and inspire every person I meet to find their laser focus, their passion, and to put action behind it. And in that they will find their purpose and empowerment to start changing lives in the communities they live in.
Each of us is a child of the one and only God. Each of us has talents, gifts, time, and resources that we can use every single day of our lives in every situation we encounter. We all have the ability to change the world by changing our communities simply by opening our eyes to what is going on around us-the people, the places, the needs as we go about our daily business. We can all do something everyday if we just learn to open our eyes to the needs of people around us.
My mission is to teach life management skills to all people and churches to help eliminate the insane chaos that prevents us from focusing on our ministries and life priorities. My mission is to teach people how to manage and filter what comes into their lives, to clean out what doesn’t belong, and to keep Jesus Christ, the central focus of how and why we live. My mission is to prevent church volunteers from becoming overburdened and stressed out. My mission is to show people how to create time for volunteering, to keep their priorities and focus clear, and to do whatever it takes to re-balance when chaos starts to enter our lives, which it will continually.
And finally, my mission is to live with less. Less stuff to interfere with my ability to focus on my mission and passion to empower and encourage people to move into action for the Kingdom of God. It doesn’t require fancy tools, expensive technology, endless meetings, planning committees, and ministry t-shirts for ministry to be done. We can be the hands and feet of Jesus each day and make it a way of life and not an event that we show up for. We live the life of a Christian each and every day and we do more than show up for church on Sunday’s. We are the church and our churches can go out into all the communities every single day and practice what we preach. We become the body of Christ without the boundaries of a building or mind-set to start living as we were commanded.
Acts 1:8 (New International Version)
8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
My mission is to be the hands and feet of Jesus after I teach in each location I am called to. My job is not just to teach in churches and then exit the picture. I am called to do more. After I teach in each town, city, village, my heart longs to meet the people in the community. I want to talk to them, encourage them by just accepting who they are-the homeless, the under-priviledged, the sick, the poor, the lost and minister to pray for and touch the lives of those who are normally forgotten on the larger scale.
So while I can be found teaching and changing lives inside our churches and businesses, you will also find me touching the lives of those outside those places, in the heart of our communities where Jesus taught and ministered to all people.
