What’s Next for You?
The drive from Frisco, Texas back to Houston always gives me some time to think. I always enjoy being a part of the D6 conference. I love the biblical root of the event. I love Matt, Ron, and the entire Randall House team who bust it to make the experience so worthwhile. I’m looking back at the investment men like David Platt and Voddie Baucham made in my life as they preached God’s Word. I’m thanking God for Doug Field’s healthy reminder about my inward man. I am thankful for the time away with my team. If you are like me, D6 is a mountaintop experience where you learn, connect with other leaders, and worship Jesus in an amazing environment but it goes by all too fast.
Just a week later, I am living “Next” in my own family and church. I have quickly descended the mountain and am now in the trenches, just like you. Here’s what my next is looking like so far. This Sunday we are hosting an event at our church called “Big Day.” We will be casting vision to help our people understand how we will live out our newly clarified mission in the next 12-24 months to “Glorify God by making disciples, equipping families, and serving the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” It’s going to be a “Big Day!” We are going to talk specifics about Missions, Milestones, Discipleship, and getting our house in order so that we can be used by God to the fullest.
After the Big Day comes the hard work of connecting people to the vision, implementing milestones, and serving the world, locally, nationally, and internationally, with the Gospel. We now in fact have a mountain to climb toward our first parent summit in February. Lot’s of teams to build, people to equip, resources to develop, yada, yada, yada.
What’s next for you? Let the theology and philosophy of your D6 experience become a daily reality in your home life and your ministry. What was your take away that will translate into your “NEXT.” Comment. I would love to read about your “Next” as D6 is in the rear-view mirror.
