General Session-Dr. Philip Renicks (Retired ASCI)
600R “Encircling the Globe, Impacting the World, Impacting Culture”
Who is my neighbor?
• Where have I pitched my tent?
• Who are the people in your circle of greatest influence?
• Is there anyone you can exclude and still fulfill the command?
God has opened a huge door for Christians and Christian schools to meet a need in areas of significant tragedy (Indonesia, etc.)
Be people of influence. Be culture changers.
“I want my students to know the love and fragrance of Christ in me.”
Teachers Everyday Commission
• Make Disciples
i. GO-win the lost and build in them a biblical worldview for all of life
ii. TEACH-equip your students with skills they will need to engage their culture for Christ (spiritual formation)
iii. LIFE CHANGE-engage your students in life changing opportunities as they engage the culture of their world
We have a command to obey.
We have a commitment to make.
A compromise to evade.
Carpe Aeternitatem “Seize Eternity”-Why settle for a day?
