“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed meto bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
By God’s grace, we long
to become “oaks of righteousness”,
growing rootsdeep in God’s Word,
bearing fruit of God-centered holiness and worship,
and branching out with Gospel-centered witness
and service to State College, Penn State,
Central Pennsylvania, and the world.
Growing roots…bearing fruit…branching out
“I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth…” I Corinthians 3:6
Possibilities: Administration, Youth, Worship, Outreach, other?
“[Christ] gave…shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ…” Ephesians 4:11,12
“Training is the engine of Gospel growth. Under God, the way to get more Gospel growth happening is to train more and more mature, godly Christians to be vine-workers – that is, to see more people equipped, resourced, and encouraged to speak the Word prayerfully to other people…”
