How can a church bring hope to a city? At St. J & B our vision is to be "The Heartbeat of the City", but how could this ever be possible? It is so easy for churches (and people!) to be inwardly focused and consumed with their own self preservation. To truly seek the welfare of others is a hard transition to make. Today we explore how our church (and all churches) need to make three big shifts: a shift from Institution to Movement, a shift from Self-focus to City-focus, and a shift from Living to Dying. Join the discussion, and let's work together to make our city a better place!
