'The Hope In Your Calling', Todd Ringness

"The Hope in Your Calling" Author Todd Ringness

“… may know what is the hope of His calling. . .” Ephesians 1:18

The truth is that nearly all of us are either pushing our way through life, or aimlessly drifting through it. And often we experience seasons of back and forth between the two. But I believe that God's design is for our Calling to be so empowering, so naturally energizing, and so fulfilling, that it will grab hold of us like a space-age tractor beam and pull us through this life.

The Hope in Your Calling is about understanding that you are uniquely and creatively made by God for a very specific plan and purpose in this life.

My own life has left me wandering much more than I care to admit. To date, I have the dubious distinction of 73 different jobs or key volunteer positions. It was primarily out of frustration that I began the journey into researching the depths of my true self. My goal was to determine the right place for me. The byproduct was the realization that there had to be many, many others in the same boat.

We are pleased to have Todd Ringness leading a three part workshop at KGF Church starting Wednesday October 5th, 7:00pm – 8:30pm in the HUB.  If you have wondered about your calling, how God has wired and gifted you, and where He might want to use you, we strongly encourage you say yes to this opportunity.

Molded Part 1: Practical Teaching

Molded:  To influence the formation or development of.

How does God mold us?  What does He use to shape us into His image and for His glory? 

We are living in an age of unparalleled access to the Bible.  Multiple translations available in so many formats, including on your phone.  You are one click away from listening, watching, or live-streaming some of the best Bible teachers in the world. We are not lacking access.  But there is something more important than access, and that's application. 

Pastor Mike begins this new 5-part series looking at the the gift of Practical Teaching, and how application trumps acquisition every time.
