"I am a rock. I am an island."
These lyrics are from Simon and Garfunkel in the 1960s. The song they draw from can often describe the way we, as followers of Jesus, seek to share our faith and help others grow in Christ. But Jesus never intended us to be individuals on our own when it comes to helping others discover and follow him.
Join us as we hear from Mutua Mahiaini, The Navigators’ international president, and David Lyons, one of The Navigators’ international vice presidents, discuss the importance of serving non-believers with others rather than as “lone rangers.” Ministering together, they say, is more enjoyable, more effective and a profound expression of our relational God.
Here's what we'll cover:
- The importance of co-operating with others and working together in communities and teams to help others discover and follow Jesus.
- The power of the Trinity’s (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) relational design
- Practical ways to work with other followers of Jesus to help those around you discover Jesus.
- Tangible ways to “be active in your natural habitat”
- Being vulnerable with others and why it’s okay to not be perfect.
- Practical steps you can take to form a focused community around reaching out and being among those yet to know Jesus.
