The 2017 Equip and Encourage Campaign
We live in a divided culture. Even within Christianity, we are deeply divided by ideology, practice and tradition. Yet, in the midst of our deeply divided lives, Jesus prays for us to be one so that the world might believe that He was sent by the Father. Earlier during the same prayer in John 17, Jesus sends His followers into the world just as the Father had sent Him. Ultimately,Jesus calls His followers to go into their world united on mission. It’s too easy to get focused on MY assignment and then forget that it’s OUR mission. This is why Vision New England exists: to unite, equip and encourage the body of Christ in New England to advance the Gospel together.
Why do we offer forums, summits, coaching, conferences and consulting for non-profits, church leaders, pastors and every follower of Jesus? Because the Kingdom of Heaven forcefully advances in New England when we GO into our world united on mission to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly and make disciples. In a time of unprecedented division and fear, our New England communities desperately need a united body of Christ recklessly bringing the hope and grace found only in Jesus. Would you join us? During this season of generosity, will you help unite, equip and encourage the body of Christ by making a first-time or extra gift to the work of Vision New England? Would you even prayerfully consider becoming a new monthly partner?
One major way we unite and equip the body of Christ is through our annual GO Conference (formerly known as Congress). The GO Conference unites New Englanders and equips them to live a life committed to four biblical mandates: do justice, love mercy, walk humbly and make disciples. Your gift to the 2017 Equip and Encourage Campaign helps make possible this gathering and many other forums, summits, coaching and consulting services. We are committed to making our events and services accessible to all New Englanders, regardless of financial ability. Your partnership makes this possible. Through your generosity, pastors, non-profits, churches and individual Christians find encouragement and connection with the broader body of Christ. They build capacity to reach more people with the Gospel. You are providing help and resources to many hurting and discouraged churches, leaders and individuals who might not have received the support necessary if not for your generous gift.
