This past Wednesday, we wrapped up our first series of the school year – Vision Series. For the past 3 weeks, we've spent time talking about who we are as a ministry, what our purpose is, what our mission is, and what our vision is.
It's simple really, we want to be like Jesus.
But too often, ministries get caught up in the tag lines. We get caught up trying to creating awesome worship services, and singing the coolest songs, and growing our numbers. It's easy to get distracted by the exterior things of who we are as a ministry.
We too often forget who we really are: A community of people. We all come from different backgrounds, different schools, and different social and economic statuses. But we're a family. That's really who we are.
And so this past Wednesday, we set up a photoshoot for our BSM North "family." Our first reason for this was simply to have fun with it! I mean, who doesn't like grabbing a few friends and making ugly faces in front of a camera?
But the other reason? To give you a glimpse of who we are. All of us have our own quirks, issues, goofiness, struggles, awkwardness, doubts, silly faces, and ridiculous poses.
All of us on our own unique journey of following Jesus and becoming more like Him.
