Lasting Impact “I Will” Video Challenge

These video segments are coordinated with Ken’s teaching series called, How to Make a Lasting Impact (October – November 2017).

We handed out the Thom Rainer book to every family, and I challenge classes to get together and discuss the information we learn from our reading. We are not replacing the class lessons, but hope that we can stimulate conversation by encouraging every family to read this book.

  1. I Will – an Introduction – October 1
  2. I Will Gather for Worship – October 8
  3. I Will Gather in a Small Group – October 15

Jeff Kemp’s personal story includes a persevering journey in the face of long odds during an eleven-year career in the NFL. He was a successful quarterback for the Rams, Forty-Niners, Seahawks and Eagles. Jeff and his father, former H.U.D. Secretary Jack Kemp, were the first of only five father-son NFL quarterback combos. Jeff’s free agent story, ups and downs, and history facing blitzes both on and off the field provide him with a great breadth of experience from which to draw insights and illustrations and to keep audiences both riveted and engaged.

Michael Crawford was born in 1968 in Los Angeles and is the youngest of 8 children. He was saved in 1987 and immediately sensed a call to preach, pastor and plant churches. He has been married to his wife Danielle for 20 years and they have 5 children ages 19, 18, 16, 14 and 11. In 2008, he moved to Baltimore to plant Freedom Church in 2010 that is committed to making and multiplying disciples.

King’s Builders Announcement

King’s Builders Mission Trip (June 13-18, 2016):

construction-plans

This is very short notice but we have worked out a King’s Builders trip to Red Springs Mission Camp in NC (about 45 minutes north of Pedro’s South of the Border). Milwaukee was a possibility but too far away.

No bus on this trip, let’s carpool. Can you stay the whole week or even part of the week?

The cost is $21 per day for lodging and meals. The church has a Builders Budget line so we can pay for gasoline.

Bring your tools and linens/pillow/towels.

Rather than building a church, this week is more about “World Changers” style projects, repair of homes in the community (perhaps roofing, building ramps, or repair of rotten flooring, etc.).

Donald Downs found Larry Osbourne with NC Baptist Men, who is working with a local pastor, Windell. He will call us closer to the event about the work.

We need about 12 men to commit to this project. Will YOU?

Here is MapQuest for directions – 4 hours, 20 minutes from KGBC.

Love is Spelled T-I-M-E

Now would be a good time for the Men of Steel to consider how much time we’ve spent with our kids this summer, and how important it is to them that we do. I’m talking about personal, individual time.

Has it been minimal, or have you intentionally put your work and personal interests on hold so that you can invade your child’s world?

Have you spent time reading together? Talking together? Gone on walks, hikes, bike rides? Taken a family vacation together? Gone swimming together? Taken your daughter out on dates? Gone fishing, canoeing, or a ton of other fun outdoor activities with your son?

I read a great quote this week: “The thing our children need most is often in the shortest supply — our time.”

They don’t care or need the “stuff” that a good paying job with long hours can provide. Children of all ages spell love T-I-M-E.

So, before you begin this mental review of your summer schedule, watch this brief video below. Hold on to the very end, it’s powerful.
