LOVE2020 "National Update"


>Kathy, I am hearing wonderful reports... Please give us a headline-update on what is going on with LOVE2020.

KATHY BRANZELL~ The LOVE2020 Headline would read: An Acceleration in theActivation, Demonstration and Proclamation of the Love and Message of Jesus Christ
 

>Collaborative initiatives often turn into event-based-programs. Do you see signs that LOVE2020 is becoming more a movement than an activity?

KATHY ~ I am thrilled to see ongoing ministry that includes ongoing collaboration. LOVE2020 partners are making long-term plans to serve together not just for a moment but to keep pace with the movement. Yes, we are great at hosting conferences and events or even promoting one another’s projects; but what I am experiencing more and more often are various ministries coming together to serve a particular community, region, or area of cultural influence with Prayer-Care-Share strategies that could never be accomplished alone. UNITY is actually happening as Christ-followers, churches and ministries are viewing one another as co-laborers – necessary and appreciated to complete the Great Commission.
 

>LOVE2020 is an invitation for every Jesus-follower to love their neighbors as they express a prayer-care-share lifestyle ... This sounds too simple to be an effective strategy...

KATHY ~ Prayer-Care-Share is simple and it is very effective. As a matter of fact we are just following in...

Evangelism is a Four Letter Word

Evangelism isn’t what it used to be and is uncertain of what it should be.

Evangelism is a Four Letter Word

Rev. Phil Miglioratti is the National Facilitator of Cities/Communities for the Mission America Coalition. He also serves as coordinator of the Everyday Evangelism track for Amplify 2017.

I get it. Culture is changing rapidly and radically. The methods we have used successfully for decades have become ineffective, even counter-productive. Heaven? Spiritual laws? Bible verses? These no longer spark spiritual interest. Evangelism training isn’t what it used to be, but in many cases is uncertain of what it should be . . .Continue reading>>>

 

Discipleship.Network Interview 
Laura Sumner Truax & Amalya Campbell Authors of "Love Let Go"

Phil ~ "In four days' time every one of our congregants would receive a check for five hundred dollars. They would be told: God trusts you to do something good in the world and so do we." Not every congregation will have the resources that made this possible for you, but what can even the smallest, least funded congregation learn from what you experienced?

Amalya ~ Generosity starts where you are and with what you have—no matter how much or how little. We all, individually and as congregations, have something to give. A cash-strapped congregation might not be able to give everyone $500 checks, but it can offer the message that each of us is created to give, and that God has granted every one of us the resources to do it. So rather than dwelling on what the church doesn’t have, the church can ask itself, What do we have? What resources of time, skill, passion, and yes, money, do we have to offer this broken and needy world? And when a church body starts giving, it will find itself wanting to give more – because just as the New Testament tell us, generosity begets generosity.

Phil ~ Your congregation was about to receive $1.6 million from the sale of property the church had invested in decades ago. What role did prayer play in the decision to pursue extravagant giving with the money you were about to receive?

We aim to unify the Church to consistently demonstrate and communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ to every man, woman, and child in America.

​As Christ Together, we are seeing faithful leaders and churches partner together to see the whole Church bring the whole Gospel to the whole Nation. We are churches and kingdom leaders, networks and denominations, and we desire to serve churches and their leaders through providing a way for THE CHURCH to join God on His mission. We initiate conversations and create environments for kingdom leaders to pray, learn, strategize and act in concert with God’s mission in their community, town, city or region.
