Hearing the Call to Spread Jesus' Message of Love
to a Hurting World
Jesus as the True Vine in John 15 - Apart from Jesus I can do nothing
Jesus as the Good Shepherd in John 10 - God love you
Jesus & the Rich Young Ruler in Mark 10 - Leave it behind
Paul & Silas on the Mission Field in Acts 16 - A lifestyle of service and worship
Paul on the Gospel in Romans 1 - I am not ashamed of the Gospel
Gingham is not just an internationally fashionable fabric, it is a pattern that illustrates what the most important virtue in life should be: love. Not that shallow type of love, which is passed off daily and is used to describe a favorite food or a temporary state of liking someone which will soon fade away. We are talking about that deep love, that forever kind of caring love, that stands the test of time, and is centered on commitment.
Simply put, when Jesus was asked what the most important things to accomplish in life were,
his response was crisp & clear, to love God and to love people. In this spirit, Authentic LA has
coined the phrase That’s Gingham! based upon this teaching. The vertical stripes conveying
to love God, the horizontal stripes to love people. This beloved print pattern, gingham, is now
a symbolic representation of what Jesus spoke of.
Providing Real Solutions to the Next Generation of Emerging Leaders
Understanding the basics mentoring
Practical steps to implement formal mentoring program within your organization
Understanding partnerships and collaboration
Practical steps to implement collaboration in one's own community
Senior leadership that desires to see the long-term success of their organization progress not only in the future, but while they are still leaders need to invest into the next generation of leaders through effective formal mentoring. Many organizations do not recognize the need to develop strong mentoring programs within the ranks of leadership. Due to this, emerging leaders who are the future of the organization do not receive the accountability and training necessary to ensure that stability is not only established but continues pas the current leader's reign.
At the same time as many emerging leaders continue to understand the complexity of issues they
are attempting to tackle, the need to step outside of their organizations to pursue relationships with
others will become more and more apparent. Segmenting one's self away from others and going for
it alone are figments of the past and collaboration is the name of the game.
