Glocal Impact Celebration

When God created the world He wanted His glory on display. He created us in His image to show His glory to a lost and desperate world. Have you ever wondered about your part in all of this…what were YOU made for? This is what we will discover during our Glocal Impact Celebration (GIC) November 17–24. We will consider the Great Commission and the Greatest Commandment. We will find that we are to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength; we are to make disciples of the people all around us; we are to love them as we love ourselves. As a follower of Jesus…you were made for this! 

“Love the Lord your God; love your neighbor; make disciples”
- Matthew 22 and 28

    Engage in the Marketplace…Business as Mission! 
    Recent years have seen the mindset of what it means to be on mission flipped on its head. What is BAM (Business-as-Mission), and what do these things have in common: Calling / Poverty / Mission / Business / Entrepreneurship? Join us to get a taste of some truly Glocal transformational opportunities that God is revealing. 

    God-honoring business is at the heart of any approach to reducing poverty. A sustainable economic opportunity — a job —  allows a person to feed, clothe and educate his family, fix his roof and to save for the future. Ethical businesses serve people throughout their communities by producing goods and services that people need.

    What’s more, godly business leaders have tremendous potential for impact at every level of the organizations they lead, if they will follow the example of Jesus and work as servant leaders. There is tremendous opportunity for transformation when focusing on future business leaders.

    Come and hear Mark Jackson, Director of Marketplace Ministries at Christian Missionary Fellowship, as he reminds us that God uses your work, your business, and your vocation in his mission to the world.
