This is what Stranger to Neighbor Ministry looks like in the church…..

This is a true “Awaken Our Hearts” story and a vision of intentional discipleship towards making Christ known.

Many times I have written about embracing diversity and inclusion, especially in areas of church leadership.  The story below highlights how one church through their openness of welcoming someone who was different from them, found a pastor willing to partner with them to reach the beloved across ethnic boundaries.   This is the fruit of the vine in real time. 

My Prayer is found in John 17…Please pray with me

“Father, it’s time.  Display the bright splendor of your Son, so the Son in turn may show your bright splendor.  So put him in charge of everything human, so he might give real and eternal life to all in his charge. And this is the real and eternal life.  That they know you, the one and only true God and Jesus Christ, whom you sent”.  Amen.

Awaken Our Hearts!
