Vision Session for 2019
Biblical Vision for the Welcoming Team
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ - Jesus in Matthew 25
Welcoming Team’s Mission
Most people end the week lost and disoriented. That’s why the Ekko’s Welcoming Team was formed to help people locate themselves in God, God’s family, and God’s mission. So that they can know that God sees them and wants them to belong and become who they were meant to be.
“Everyone who dies out there dies of confusion.”
To be seen is to be real
“Psychologists have observed that one of the most basic human needs, beginning at birth, is to be gazed upon by another. Mothers throughout the world have been observed spending long periods staring into the eyes of their babies with a characteristic tilt of the head. To be seen is to be real, and without another to gaze upon us, we are nothing. Part of the terror of being lost stems from the idea of never being seen again.” - Gonzales, “Deep Survival”
“To be seen is to be real.”
“Be Here Now”.
Thank you for everything Welcoming Team.
Because He Lives,
