Have
you ever felt a stirring in your heart towards a greater mission? Sometimes as we grow comfortable serving in the parish ministry we are serving in, we lose the sense of the greater call.

The Lord has great dreams for us and calls us to be vessels in building his kingdom โ€“ He calls us to a deeper mission, a deeper calling. Come and discover the deeper calling and mission in your ministry with Mike Arents on Mon 23 Sep, 8 - 10pm at the Main Church.
