Leaders should never have to lead alone.
You will hear us say that a lot in our organization because we care deeply about supporting leaders, especially during these unprecedented times. We are here to stand with you and for you, seeking out ways to pray, equip, and connect.
Pray. Prayer should always be our first response as Oswald Chambers said: “We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all.” As we navigate this season together, we will continue to lead in the space of prayer. Know that our team is praying for you and your ministry both corporately through our 1st Thursday Prayer online gathering, as well as individually.
Equip. We are currently working with various foundations to provide a source of relief for leaders and ministries in need. We are also gathering information from the Mayor’s office to keep you up to date on any recent developments surrounding the pandemic. We will use our website and social media outlets to keep you in the loop.
Connect. It has been so inspiring to see the ways churches and ministries have shifted gears to meet the needs of those around them. We want to celebrate all the incredible work you and your teams are doing. We will continue bridging churches, non-profits, and organizations to inspire unity across spaces and groups.
We have seen time and time again, how churches, leaders, and non-profit agencies put aside their differences and work together for the good of our city during past hardships. May we turn to our God in hope and faith once again for our city, for our nation, and for the globe!
