You have heard me talk a lot about the spiritual journey we are on called NEXT!
NEXT is a spiritual journey that the leadership of the church felt led by God to lead Eastside through. The intention of this spiritual journey is to encourage everyone to pray a simple prayer. We call it the “NEXT PRAYER” – “God, what do you want to do through me NEXT to accomplish your vision for Eastside?”
We believe God is asking us to do 3 key things – NEXT:
1. Deepen our spiritual relationship with Christ.
NEXT is about knowing and following Jesus as Lord and discipling others to live a life of full surrender to Him.
2. Expand our hearts to reach more people for Christ.
NEXT is about growing in our passion and conviction to do whatever we can do help people meet Jesus as Savior.
3. Embrace our willingness to sacrifice for His purpose.
NEXT is about surrendering and sacrificing our time, talents, treasures, and plans for Him and His purposes.
Where is God leading you? How are you going to respond? What is God leading you to do NEXT?
