7 on Multiplication

becoming-7-series-gfx_4x3-title

I concluded the “Becoming 7” series at Eastbrook this past weekend with a message called “7 on Multiplication.” This series is an overview of our vision for the year, focusing on our big five vision objectives: becoming a Revelation 7:9-10 church; growing in discipleship depth; growing in mission width; growing in leadership multiplication; and increasing in overall engagement. Sometimes we aim to become a “10” but in this series we will talk about why we are aiming for “7” instead.

You can also follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.

I continued our “Becoming 7” series this weekend at Eastbrook with a message called “7 on Mission.” This series is an overview of our vision for the year, focusing on our big five vision objectives: becoming a Revelation 7:9-10 church; growing disciples; reaching out; multiplying leaders; and increasing church engagement. Sometimes we aim to become a “10” but in this series we will talk about why we are aiming for “7” instead.

Becoming 7 (Revelation 7:9-10)

“There before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:9)

 

 

The Movement of Mission (Acts 1:8; Luke 24:46-49) 

  • Called to life in Jesus
  • Called to power in the Holy Spirit
  • Called to witness in word and deed
  • Called to the other – the nations

 

Four Tensions

  • The inward / outward life of the church
  • The church focused on Jesus / the church focused on others
  • The power of God / the work of the church
  • The church at peace with God / the church at odds with the world

 

Becoming 7 on Discipleship

  • Our goal at Eastbrook

 

7 on Discipleship

The next three weekends at Eastbrook Church we will launch into a new series that charts out our vision and direction for the coming year and beyond entitled “Becoming 7.”

This series is an overview of how we want to move from ‘what’ of our mission – “to proclaim and embody the love of Jesus Christ in the city and in the world” – to the ‘how’ of our big five vision objectives:

  • becoming a Revelation 7:9-10 church
  • growing in discipleship depth
  • growing in mission width
  • growing in leadership multiplication
  • increasing in overall church engagement

Sometimes we aim to become a “10” but in this series we will talk about why we are aiming for “7” instead.

You can follow along with the series via our web-site, our Vimeo page, our Facebook page, or by downloading the Eastbrook Church app.

Praying Like a Master

Art of Prayer Series Gfx_App WideI continue our series, “The Art of Prayer,” this past weekend at Eastbrook with a message entitled “Praying Like a Master” from Luke 11:1-13. Jesus is the Master of prayer, and if we want to truly learn about prayer then we must apprentice ourselves to the Master. When the disciples had spent enough time with Jesus, they asked Him, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). With the disciples, we need to learn from Jesus’ essential teaching on prayer.

You can watch the message here, following along with the outline below. You can also follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.

 

The What of Prayer (Luke 11:1-4)

Addressing the Father

Declaring His Name and His Kingdom

Requesting what we need: provision, forgiveness, endurance

 

The How of Prayer (Luke 11:5-10)

With shameless audacity

By asking, seeking, knocking

 

The Who of Prayer (Luke 11:11-13)

The Father above all fathers

The Gift above all gifts
