A Vision to Reach People for Jesus

Scripture Reference: Acts 18:1-11

Today, I shared a vision to reach people for Jesus over the next five years together at First Baptist. This 2020 vision is modeled after the one God gave to Paul when he was in Corinth in Acts 18:1-11, “Don’t afraid. Keep on talking, and do not be silent. No one will lay hand on you to harm you. There are many people in that city who are my people.”

Our vision has five goals for the next five years.

  1. Faithful Disciples
  2. Connected Church
  3. Servant Leaders
  4. Strong Homes
  5. Impacted City

Our Strategic Planning Committee has worked faithfully over the past 9 months. We’ve met with over 400 people, including our deacons and staff, to plan out this process. We’ll be presenting the implications of the vision in the form of a strategic plan over the next few weeks. Please join us for a full discussion of the objectives and strategies on August 26 at 6:00 p.m. We will also be hosting a series of home groups designed to discuss the details of the strategic plan. You are the people that God has called to be the church for this season of ministry in our Corinth—Tallahassee. Will you make these 5 goals your goals for the next 5 years?
