Team work makes the dream work
The dream of Sioux Falls First is for every one to take responsibility for leading people into a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ, creating a culture of life-change where people can experience the power and the presence of God not just on Sunday morning but outside the church building as well. Our dream originates with God's dream. God is in the business of changing lives and there is a role for every single one of us in the dream of God. We see in scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, that it takes a team to achieve the dream.
When we consider everything that is included in God's dream for Sioux Falls First - leading, serving, mentoring, praying, hospitality, evangelizing, etc. - the " to -do" list can seem overwhelming. There is a lot of work that needs to be done and it requires a team. Jesus understood the enormity of His Kingdom work and spoke about it with His disciples in Matthew 9:37-38, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into the harvest field." Jesus told us to pray for workers and so we have prayed and we encourage you to pray too. Ask God, "What is my role in God's dream for Sioux Falls First?" We are all gifted with a purpose and when we come together as a team, we aren't just filling in gaps. When we come together, we are fulfilling our purposes and working together to achieve His dream.
Not sure what your gifts are? We encourage you to seek God in prayer with a surrendered heart and ask Him to reveal and develop your giftings. We have a spiritual gifting test that you can take which is a tool used to reveal your strengths. If you aren't sure where to start, we encourage you to experiment in some areas of service that might interest you. Take a risk, step out in faith and try something new. We encourage you to try a new ministry area for three months to see if your giftings are fitting into the role.
Every single person is gifted for a purpose, and those gifts are meant to be spent helping other people. They are given to us to fulfill God's dream. They are meant to be invested for the next life - for eternity. When we come together as a team, and put on the team jersey we know that miracles happen and we know our actions provoke actions in others.
We invite you to join the DREAM TEAM. Put on the jersey as we come together as a team to lead life-change in Sioux Falls and beyond.
