Be One of the Thousand

This is a risk. Putting my vision thoughts for Xcel Church Darlington in the open. Next time we are in Central Hall we will begin to delve into this thought.

For starters just think about this…

Our town has a population of 100,000 people. Surely that deserves a kicking Church. (Not that there aren’t some good churches already) I know I say this but it’s not all about numbers. But 1000 people. Wow – think of the impact that would have.

Just 1%. That’s all I’m believing God for. It’s not actually that much. Question is: how much faith do you need to see that come to pass?

Just 1000 ordinary people, living to make a difference. A group of transformed people influencing their community. Loving God, loving people, loving life.

How do we grow to this? How do we make it happen? Sunday 7th September – let’s start to unpack it together & follow my thoughts on here too.

  1. I think that it’s great that we keep the vision in our minds, it helps us focus and something to strive for. And a scripture because i’m feeling mighty spiritual today.
    Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish

  2. We are a Church with ever expanding vision and to fulfil this we need an army of faithful volunteers who are committed to using their unique skills and personalities to reach this town and beyond.
    Together we are responsible for setting up venues, hosting and welcoming people. ‘Be one of the Thousand’…WOW sounds like a great title for a book.

  3. haha fran, our homework diary does include everything you’d ever want to know. Not that scripture though. đŸ™‚
    I agree though dazza that is a great name for a book. Julian, get to work lol.

  4. oh errmm…ok…umm ‘Be one of the Thousand’ this could mean anything really.
    i’m sure Leadership will be in there somewhere.lol
    along the lines what you said this morning,..
    Be one of the Thousand that turns up BEING CHURCH not just DOING CHURCH,
    having a vision
    expanding vision
    making it plain (knowing the boundries)
    Be one of the Thousand in an army of faithful volunteers committed to using their unique skills responsible for setting up venues, hosting and welcoming people.
