Everything we possess is a trust from God. Our time, talents, finances, health, intelligence, influence, and even our freedom of choice are all resources that God has endowed us with. Our challenge from God is to maximize what He has placed in our power and use it for good.
- We want to become more responsible for our personal spiritual development (Higher church attendance, more members involved in service, more involvement in growth groups).
- We want to become more responsible neighbors (More opportunities and involvement in service in the church community or the communities where we live).
- We want to become more responsible managers of our time, health, and finances (At least 60% of our congregation giving intentionally/systematically, more of our congregation becoming debt free, more of our members adopting healthy lifestyles).
