Men’s Conference – “Go and Do”

OCTOBER 27, 2018

9 AM - 6 PM
Scott Chrostek

The Church is something we go and do!

One of the most powerful components of Jesus’ ministry was its dynamic nature. Jesus was literally the word of God ‘enfleshed.’ The word made flesh. Everything about his ministry was embodied and on the move. Jesus’ words (preaching and teaching) were powerful largely because they were rooted in a life of love-filled action and practice. How do your faith, your beliefs, your life inside of the church relate to your daily life? Are they connected, consistent? When it comes to living the life that God longs for us to lead, striving to live like Christ in a way that spurs others “to go and do likewise” is what it’s all about.

God’s love “makes sense out of nonsense,” turns “nothing to something” and transforms “death to life.”
