Every spiritually formative defining moment in my life has happened because I was in a place where those kind moments happen. It wasn’t in the daily grind, but my daily grind was forever changed by those moments.
I experienced a marriage and fathering defining moment at a fathering conference I attended when my kids were young.
A theological game changer came while reading a book on the holiness of God.
The entire trajectory of my ministry and of our church was marked by listening to a one-hour, online workshop on the story of God.
I can recount at least a half dozen leadership game changing moments that happened at various Global Leadership Summits.
The vocational direction of my life was set at a youth missions conference when I was in tenth grade.
I could list more, but let me get to the point.
Five Oaks is hosting the Perspectives in World Missions course starting in January. I know a lot of people who have attended it, but I don’t know any for whom it was not truly a spiritually formative defining moment in their lives. (Get detailed information here.)
Watch the video. Ask yourself: “When was the last time I put myself in a place where defining moments happen?” There will be an informational table in the Commons in two weekends so you can find out more about the course. (If you're reading this online, go here for the video.)
