Series Description

You probably don’t regard yourself as the next Elon Musk or Beyonce, a trendsetter who upsets the norm by blazing a new trail to follow. But, the truth is, God has already placed you in a position of great influence. The question is not whether you are an example to your family, neighbors, and co-workers, but what kind of example. In this series, we will explore the apostle Paul’s call to the young, inexperienced Timothy to “set an example” for an entire community by living and loving in a Christ-like way. How might our communities be different if we too own our influence as spiritual trendsetters?

Prayer of Illumination: Lord our God, pour out your Holy Spirit on us. Let us hear your promise in this Scripture, and let the world know your blessing in our lives. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
