A Bold New Day for Connexus

After months of prayer and preparation,  this morning we shared a bold new vision for Connexus Church.  If you missed the video announcing bold, here it is.

I'm so personally excited for our future together.  After almost five years together, we could keep simply doing what we're doing, or we could become bolder.   At the heart of the bold vision are four moves.

Bold Move One:  Secure a permanent facility.
Bold Move Two: Refresh our existing portable campus.
Bold Move Three: Launch an online campus.
Bold Move Four: Expand our ministry.

If you want more details on the vision, watch the video.  Even more details will come over the next few months.

I really believe if we all pray more boldly, invite more boldly, and give more boldly than ever before, we will be amazed at what we see God do.  We dream of the boldness of the first century church being realized in our midst today.

If there's one personal request I would ask of each of you, it would be to engage bold personally.  Don't just take our word for it, talk to God about it.  At the heart of bold is a 40 day spiritual journey that begins October 10th.  It will be a time for you to take a few minutes each day to reflect on scripture pray and think through the future God has for us.  Our hope is that every person who calls Connexus home would take the journey together.  We believe it will be an incredibly fruitful time, one in which our passion and vision and relationship with God will grow.

Want to get involved? During the next few months, there will be all kinds of opportunities to engage personally with the vision behind bold. Watch this blog, visit www.morebold.ly for all things bold. And make sure you make it to some of the Epic Events we have planned (stay tuned for details).

Our first four and a half years have been characterized by bold dreams, bold risks, and incredible stories of life change.   We are so grateful for that…and excited that the future looks bolder than ever.

It's a privilege to be able to do this together.

    Love the Bold Move Four as it has been on my heart for awhile.

    May God Bless the Bold Thrust! I plan to pray about how it could work at 1st CRC Barrrie in the evening service with iMarriage.

    Was blessed by attending Orillia Connexus this summer!
