Created to Live SENT Spiritual Growth Initiative
Imagine a church full of people on a journey to find their way back to God and growing to be like Christ. I call that living SENT. Jesus said, “As the Father sent me, so I send you.” It is on-purpose missional living. It becomes a church without walls!
The problem is that living SENT often feels backwards if we are accustomed to living for self first. The book backwards describes a lifestyle that wins the tug of war between living for self or living SENT.
Growing to be like Christ isn’t complicated. At Indian Creek Community Church we’ve developed an easy to remember way to describe the outcomes. We love God. We love people and we live out the love of Jesus. This is living SENT.
You could launch a movement of people living SENT through a six week message series titled, “Created to Live SENT.”
Created to Live SENT
Align your Sunday messages with a groups launch and start new groups so everyone has a group for this six week series. There is a companion study guide complete with DVD group introductions so even the first-time group leader is equipped. Create owners by having the congregation buy their book and track along with the free devotionals. Add a Celebration Sunday with baptisms and a Serving project and the result will be a congregation that is learning to live SENT.
Use the book, backwards as a text $12.99
Everyone in the congregation needs their own book to read throughout the series. It goes along with the Sunday messages, the group lessons and the daily devotions.
