Destiny!

DESTINY!

 It’s a word that brings hope, evaluation, and planning. It’s a word that encourages faith and future. It’s a word that moves us to act and anticipate.

DESTINY!

It’s the name of our Conference Summit on June 11 that will bring ministers and church members together to praise & worship, to receive an anointed message and to reconfirm to each other the importance of corporately being The Church together. With guest speaker Josh Lafferty bringing a message to encourage and challenge us, we will sing, clap, dance and shout with The Refuge Band from Okmulgee as they lead us into praise and worship bringing glory to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

DESTINY!

Over the past 18 years, we have joined together using various themes like “Dare2Dream,” “Crossing Boundaries, Claiming Blessings!” and “Passing the Baton” to propel, energize and inspire our churches and ministers forward in dedicated service and in fulfilling the Great Commission. With our NHM mission “Equipping and Releasing Churches and Ministers into Divine Destiny” in our DNA and our hearts, we hold fast to the blessings of God in our lives, churches and communities.

DESTINY!

As we move forward in 2021, we MUST re-evaluate. We must dream, have vision and live faithfully. Are we satisfied with the group we presently have in our services or do we dream of reaching more of our world for Jesus? Do we see our communities as mission fields and our neighborhoods as our Jerusalem (Acts 1:8) to reach for Jesus? Will we begin to focus on how to reach our neighbors for Jesus and not just on what we like in a church service? What will be our destiny? What will we accomplish for God’s glory?

DESTINY!

Now, we must GO & TELL! Our evangelism, witness and testimony must be stronger and more intentional than ever. Our goal of reaching people for Jesus must be first and foremost in our ministry. Our desire for discipleship must be purposeful and a priority. As we move in God’s will for our lives, the Holy Spirit will empower us to accomplish God’s destiny for us!
