Last year (2012) the overarching guidance that we received was, “nurture what has been planted”.
We are, and will continue to nurture the programs and ministries that God has already planted, such as the Dunamis Project, Ignite for growing the Church, Mission Outreach, and the Dunamis Institute, to name a few.
The challenge and the guidance this year, is to provide the prayer, focus and finances to certain areas to enable them to connect to the great movement of the Holy Spirit resulting in major impact for Kingdom of God.
As we have been discerning what God is calling us to do, and also as we look at the future fraught with danger to the Church and our world, the leadership team of PRMI and our Board of Directors are looking at the following four areas to focus on in 2013.
Each of the four areas has potential for great impact for the Kingdom and we believe that each of these represents an invitation from Jesus Christ for us to join Him in these things through financial giving, through participation, and through the work of prayer.
Will you join us now in praying? Is there one of these that God is speaking to you about, one that especially touches how God is calling you to make a difference in our troubled world?
Equipping Youth and Young Adults – Upward Challenge for youth, With the Wind for young adults, and our just launched, Arise program for mentoring and raising up leaders (ages 18-30) are thriving and enabling our children and grandchildren to join in the movement of the Holy Spirit.
Growing and Equipping the Faculty – mobilizing, equipping and deploying members of the Dunamis Fellowship International as teachers and leaders for the Dunamis Project, the Ignites for congregations and all of our ministries worldwide.
Engagement in Mission Outreach – providing Dunamis Project teaching all over the world. Major ministry is already on going in Indonesia, Japan, South America, Africa, Haiti, and now new doors are opening to us in the Muslim world like Turkistan, and in the Chinese world in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. While teams raise their own funds, it takes a whole support organization to enable people to be involved this work.
Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit – Jesus is calling us to develop a whole new program that adapts the Dunamis Project teaching on the Holy Spirit for use in the local church (especially for CRC/RCA congregations.) On-fire congregations are the key to changing the world and advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit equipping for pastors, and Growing Your Church for congregations are already bearing good fruit.
We believe that Jesus is inviting us to cooperate with Him in these areas as His hands, feet and voice for His work in the world. How is the Holy Spirit inviting you to come and join in this strategic work of advancing the Kingdom of God?
Begin by praying with us as we seek to respond to God’s invitation to join in Jesus’ work in 2013 and beyond.
