Leadership Group ~ April 29, 2017 (8 am – 12 pm)
Once per quarter everyone who leads a ministry at Northview, or who expresses leadership capacity, are gathered together for a leadership morning. The day is split into two main sections. For the first two hours we focus in on a leadership topic, this time it was The Discipline of Self-Development, and then for the second two hours we divide by gender and do a formational time.
Paul’s Letter to the Philippians
Paul’s letter to the Philippians is written to a group of Christians who desperately needed encouragement and strength. They had become followers of Jesus through the ministry of Paul, but now found themselves in a hostile world. Paul was in prison, divisions were erupting in the church and pressure was bring applied by outside groups. As a result they were losing confidence, hope and joy. This picture is not far off from what many Christians are experiencing today, so Paul has a word for us too; Rejoice! This little letter explodes with the how and why the church can rejoice in the midst of difficult times.
