Dear 4:29 Tribe,
Welcome to High School. We’ve all been together for a while now growing up through Transit, having a ton of fun going on outings to the Hooch and lake, serving together downtown, making silly videos, and most importantly growing closer together as a tribe. It’s been real, and it’s been fun.
It’s time to start growing up and prioritizing y’alls faith in God more so than you ever have before.
Yesterday I introduced the group to this idea of claiming ownership of what God’s given to us, and to Be Bold in our faith through a few steps of which you can all keep each other accountable. This is not a new idea, in fact Andy Stanley did a whole series based on Acts 4 and 5 here and I really think we are in an extremely unique situation where we can be a reflection of the image of God through our words and actions, creating a positive influence among our peers and friends.
Guys, we’re going to be a BOLD small group that comes from Inside Out, encouraging one another in being intentional in what we do instead of letting the world strip us of our boldness.
Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.
This is the beginning of your personal ministry, and I am so excited to be so lucky to witness this first hand.
