The Power of Vision Conference ~ How the Generationally Focused Church Can Help Change the World

In September, Gospel Legacy leaders from across the country gathered in Kansas City to share about the power of a godly, generationally focused vision at The Power of Vision conference. The conference was designed for leaders, pastors, church planters, parents, and young adults. The Scripture is clear - without a vision, the people suffer. So does the church, the family, and so will the future!

A clear, biblically based vision is part of what the modern Church needs today if we are to fulfill the Great Commission that our Savior has given to us. There are 15 messages and a Q & A session detailing:

• How to lead and shepherd generationally
• How to deal with the inevitable conflict of leading strong people
• How to live the vision both within and outside of the building's walls
• How to deal with disappointment

The audio versions are available here for download, and the videos are available on YouTube here.

What They Are Saying:

“I didn’t even know what I needed to know about planting a church, only that I HAD to go in this direction. HOFCC provided incredible support, and I have been indeed blessed!” (South Carolina)

“Our church has benefited from specific consultation with board members on matters of eldering, budgeting, dealing with members in need, as well as encouragement in matters related to being consistent with the vision of a Family-Integrated Church. (Oregon)

“Fellowship in a Family-Integrated Church reinforces in my children the things that we value. Having other families model similar lifestyles allows my children to walk with the wise and avoid foolishness.” (Washington)

“When I was in Portland with you, I knew that God was speaking to me about beginning the process of an FIC - probably in this community where we are now. I am more convinced than ever that the FIC is the way to go. I'm going to meet with a couple of other like-minded families and begin praying about this.” (Minnesota)


~Monthly Conference Call~

~Saturday, November 14th ~ 7:00 AM Pacific Time~

When anyone from either social, political, legal or even religious settings begin to decry the challenges we are facing in our nation today, one of the first and most-mentioned statistics is absentee fathers. And while that is true across many demographics of our country, less obvious is the spiritual absenteeism  of even evangelical Christian fathers in America. We have so often quoted the tragic statistics on the loss of our children to the culture, but the thing that makes it so mournful is that so many of these kids have been raised by Bible-believing parents.

To those of us in the Gospel Legacy movement, and without judging anyone, we perceive that this is largely due to the broad deterioration of fatherhood in western cultures. It is obvious – we must rebuild the Christian family! But this cannot be widely done without first rebuilding the basis of fatherhood. And we can only do that in the hearts and minds of Christian fathers themselves, across the land, one father at a time.

Join Eric Burd, president of the Household of Faith Fellowship of Churches and a director on the Council for Gospel Legacy Churches on Saturday, November 14th at 7 am Pacific / 10 am Eastern as he presents Rebuilding Fatherhood.  Whether a church leader, ministry leader or parent, this message will strengthen you in your dual ministries at home and your place of service. It will also give you tools for helping others in this war for the hearts of the next generation.

Strong fathers make strong families, strong families make strong churches, strong churches make strong fathers...
