*Let’s get over ourselves! God’s faithfulness Has God pursuing get the job done!

Seasons!!!! (God is moving among us...act like young fishermen: bait/switch


Develop leaders (Contributes significantly to our Missional Momentum)
  • Recruit mentors & coaches for life long leadership development
  • Specifically: Develop young leaders 

God’s Word We are illuminated by the Spirit
Relationships We are united by the Spirit
Outward Action We are directed by the Spirit
Worship We are ignited by the Spirit

*Sustained spiritual & congregational growth will not happen outside of this process.

G: Wednesdays, Sundays, Small Groups, Devotional, Book Groups, Audio Bible

R: Fellowship Opportunities...We are family and must act like it

O: Exit To Serve (I want an ETS booth every Sunday w/ growth opportunities)

W: Responsiveness to God (lifestyle, stewardship, prayer). Worship = Selfless Maturity on display!!

**Transformation is a function of the sum of each of these. Transformation is the process by which God occupies more territory in our lives and perceptions.

***Transformation on this level will kick FOL’s “Missional Momentum” into high gear!

Challenge: Ask God for a transformation that is a proliferation of the salvation at which point the Angels in Heaven rejoiced over your choice! The angels didn’t rejoice because you merely converted...they rejoiced in that your salvation was the beginning of the end of our sad, personal, selfish & very limited reign and control in life and the beginning of God’s hold on planet Earth...through brand new ways.
