What lies in our heart
On 26 February 2010 the leadership team wrote the following letter to our community:
This comes as an honest letter to you after our leadership team gathered and prayed.
As the Lord Jesus is using and growing us to become true servant-leaders in Jeffrey Bay, we want to remind you of what lies at the core of who we are:
- As leaders, we, and all of our community, must commit to God in raw obedience.
- We must be a people of active faith – stretching our Christ-like faith to do impossible things.
- Our inward journey in our relationship with Jesus precedes all we do.
- We will discipline ourselves to seek God, spending time with Him and celebrating Him.
- We will keep the element of pioneering and faith in our core values with all our endeavours.
- We believe that unity and family is central to who we are as His people.
- We will focus on equipping and mobilizing leaders.
- We desire to share the Good News of Christ in our personal spheres.
- We will ensure that Global Challenge stretches its community to fully rely on God and not our insight and resources.
- We are called to disciple and mobilize the leaders and missionaries of the future.
- We won’t forget to keep the fun and adventure alive in all we do!
In three words, we are a people of: Dedication. Innovation. Declaration.
We love Jesus. We obey Jesus. We share Jesus.
Forever, for the Kingdom!
