‘We are the leaders …’

Every speaker looks at his or her audience and thinks, I know what I want to say, but I wonder what they are going to hear.

That was me as I took the stage at the first session of our Strikepoint Conference in June. More than 2,500 people were looking at me, not knowing exactly why they were there, what they would be hearing, or what they would be asked to do.

During the course of the day, I, along with other speakers, shared a mission strategy designed to enhance our ability to effectively communicate the full Gospel in particular ways within each of our communities. In the back of my mind I was wondering, But what did people hear?

We’re the leaders we’ve been waiting for‘ offers an open letter that two delegates wrote to their corps following the conference. It is a keeper. In it, they simply and eloquently capture the essence of Strikepoint. Please read what these two young adults have written.

Consider it in the context of your own corps, your own life, and, in their words, “live each day like a missions trip, an adventure with Christ.”
