An event For Pastors, Church staff, and group leaders who believe that the mission of the church matters

2020 Theme: Focus

So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.   Colossians 3:1–3 CSB

Distractions threaten to pull us in disparate directions, blurring our focus so that we lose sight of what’s most important. We worry about budgets and buildings. Factions threaten to fracture our church’s unity. Chaotic voices clamor for our attention. To lead well, we must re-center our gazere-focus our attentionon our purpose for doing ministry.

To lead well, we must re-center our gazere-focus our attentionon our purpose for doing ministry.

Focus on the Master

Why do we lead and serve? It’s worth remembering that our job is not to promote or make a name for ourselves, but to champion the person and work of Jesus. Is he the focus of our ministry? Is he the center of everything we do? Do we point people to Christ?

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2 CSB

Focus on the Message

If Christ is our focus, his gospel must be our message. We tend to look at success through a haze of big numbers or expanding influence, but the real triumph is when lives are changed through the good news of salvation. Is the cross the focus of our teaching and preaching?

“. . . but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the Gentiles.” 1 Corinthians 1:23 CSB

Focus on the Mission

Jesus gave his followers a missionto make disciples. They preached the gospel worldwide and so must we, starting at home. They also met the needs, both spiritual and physical, of those they encountered. We too must strive for a holistic approach to serving. How are we embodying Christ in our community and world?

“Then he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” Luke 9:2 CSB

Heading

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
