About the Series

October/November 2016

At the turn of the century, myriads of organizations published their “2020 Vision.” With a play on words, they outlined what they would do in the next 20 years. However, the world has drastically changed since then. At our current pace 20-, 10-, and even 5-year visions are obsolete.

With a spirit of humility and flexibility to the Holy Spirit, this series will cast vision for where we believe God is taking our church in the next 3 years. Please pray with us as we study 7 key New Testament texts and approach the future together with faith in God.
