Opening Doors & Crossing the Threshold
Coming In to Go Out
2017 Leadership Retreat
November 10-11, 2017
Highlands Presbyterian Camp & Retreat Center
Presenter: Ray Jones, Associate Director Evangelism, Presbyterian Mission Agency
“Many church leaders are asking the question, “How can we grow our churches?” But this is not the right question to be asking. A better question to be asking ourselves is the one that strikes at the heart of our identity; “What does it mean for us to live in the way of Jesus?” Church growth is not a bad thing, but it does not bring us to the heart of the problem we are facing, which is how we intentionally make disciples.”
“What spiritual practices/disciplines lead to the lifestyle of bearing fruit? We will examine the personal and communal practices that take us more deeply into the authentic habits that lead to sacrificial service and faith sharing.” - Ray Jones
