SERVANT LEADERSHIP UPDATE

At the 2016 and 2017 Leadership Summits, Eddie and Jane Faircloth and other presenters introduced our Expressions of Jesus series by teaching on Servant Leadership. The need for Holy Spirit based leadership is vital in our times. As we become more intimate with God through praise, prayer and worship, we are inspired to become Spirit led leaders through our witness, influence and service to others.

We encourage you to deepen your relationship with God by daily prayer, praise and personal meditation and study. The "Leading with the Word" is an important part of this process. Many other tools and teachings will be presented in the months to come. Complementing our personal spiritual growth, our goal is to edit and produce the video series to be available on the CCM Website.

As the Spirit leads, Eddie and Jane are preparing additional material identifying principles lifting up the power of the Holy Spirit in opportunities of leadership. Jesus demonstrated spiritual leadership by influencing our lives with the love of His Father. By His Word and deed, Jesus has demonstrated the importance of Christian leadership where we live and work. This is an exciting venture and will help us to be led by the Spirit in our families, groups and fellowship experiences. Watch for updates and futrue announcements. (Learm More)

FOOD for THOUGHT
from the Editor

During these trying times, it is well for us to remember that, as Christians, we do not get a free detour around our problems; we get a guided tour through them.  1Thessalonians 5:18 says we are called to “rejoice always” and give thanks in all circumstances.  When we spend time regretting the past and worrying what the future will bring, we rush past God who is the ultimate source of joy.  The following says it all:

                                  I AM 
  I was regretting the past, and fearing the future .....Suddenly my Lord was speaking:                                             
MY NAME IS I AM”.
 
He paused. I waited.  He continued.
WHEN YOU LIVE IN THE PAST, WITH  ITS MISTAKES AND REGRETS, IT IS HARD.  
I AM NOT THERE. MY NAME IS NOT
I WAS.

WHEN YOU LIVE IN THE FUTURE, WITH
ITS PROBLEMS AND FEARS. IT IS HARD.
I AM NOT THERE. MY NAME IS NOT
I WILL BE   
                                          
WHEN YOU LIVE IN THIS MOMENT, IT IS NOT HARD. I AM HERE.  MY NAME IS
I AM .
                                              
Joy is always in the present tense, just as God is, the Eternal  Now.

PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER
I ask You to bless my friends, relatives, and those that I care for deeply.  Show them a new revelation of joy through Your love and power.  

Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.  Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace.  Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs.  Bless their homes, families, finances, their comings and goings.  In the Name of Jesus, AMEN!
