I never dreamed I would be a Denver Broncos fan. But now I find myself trying to watch every game they play. Of course, the truth is, I’m a Tim Tebow fan. What’s not to like about Tebow? (It also doesn’t hurt that they have former Georgia great, Knowshon Moreno.)
Here are a couple of things that have recently come to my inbox on the subject Tebow and leadership. They are definitely worth watching and reading, especially if you want to pass on some important leadership principles to young men and women in your spheres of influence.
The first is from Tim Elmore at his website, Growing Leaders.
Here’s a post at Brian Dodd’s great blog on 14 Leadership Lessons Young Leaders Can Learn from Tim Tebow. Good stuff!
Below is some information about the mission trip to Guatemala that some of the men of our church will be going on this coming April. The info-meeting referred to has already happened, but the contact information is still good and it is definitely not too late to learn more and/or sign up, though space is limited. (Just to be clear: this mission trip is open to any and all men at Southside… though, as I said, space is limited.)
PS – One of the best and most inspiring messages I ever heard on missions was by John Piper. You can read or listen to the message by clicking here.
Grace and Truth,
Have you been looking for a way to put your faith in action? Has God begun to give you a heart to serve? Do you desire to deepen your relationship with God by sharing His love with others?
Then we’ve got a trip for you!
The Baxter Boys men’s ministry here at Southside is sponsoring a mission trip to Guatemala on April 21-29 of 2012. We will be involved in a construction project with the Mission2Guatemala team–the ministry our youth have worked with over the past few years–and will stay at their center in Chisek. The cost of the trip will be $1500 per person which includes airfare, living expenses in Guatemala, and construction materials for the project. A deposit of $400 will be due by January 15, and we hope to offset the rest by fundraising.
We will have an exploratory meeting on Wednesday, December 14 at 5:45 PM in the Family Life Center main area. We will discuss the trip, pass out the FAQ sheets from M2G and plan fund raising. If you have any questions or are interested but cannot attend, contact David Preston at email@example.com or 616-6817. You don’t have to be a “Baxter Boy,” just a man of God willing to rise up and go forth in His name. See you on the 14th!
NEW from Man in the Mirror…
by Pat Morley
Men, my new book MAN ALIVE comes out on January 17. I would like to enlist your help to get the word out.
90% of Christian men lead lukewarm, often defeated lives — and they hate it. But it doesn’t have to be that way. MAN ALIVE will show men how to harness the raw energy they feel into a powerful spiritual life.
But how do we engage these men? We need to put a little bait on the hook.
So we’ve produced a heart-pumping, 75-second video trailer that you can view at www.ManAliveBook.com. (Yes, I’m the driver.) (See video below)
The plan is to get as many people as possible to watch the video trailer to create awareness for the book and its message.
Would you please share the trailer with your friends? Here are some ways you can help get the word out:
