We continue to ask the question today, “What Are You Dreaming About?” As I mentioned in my first post, I am looking for a full-time position in ministry. Whether that is a senior pastor position, or a staff position in the area of discipleship, leadership and / or missional outreach, God will guide. As I pray and fast each week, in my time alone with God and in the daily activities of life, God has been focusing my heart on the dream He wants me to follow.

And so, since I have been dreaming, I thought I would share my heart. Perhaps it will stir your heart and soul as well. Since my God-given dream comes in four different spheres, I thought I would share them one at a time.

Today I want to share my dream for outreach. What is the target of my life?

I dream about reaching …

o   18-40 some-things, seeking to help them form the faith journey and shape their world for Christ.

o   Multi-ethnic, urban communities, reveling in the diversity that is the body of Christ in the context of a vibrant, social populace.

o   The city, by becoming a true bridge to reaching the nations by starting here at home, since I am urban in heart and soul.

o   The unchurched and bringing them into spiritual maturity through mentored discipleship, knowing that each generation benefits from an experienced mentor.

What do you dream about when it comes to outreach? Would you like to share it with us? I would love to hear what God is doing in your heart and soul! Perhaps your dream will connect with someone else as you share it. (And of course, if you like my dream and it connects with your ministry, I am looking for a full time position.)
