There are many ways and means which God can use to make Christ’s message meaningful to people in leadership. The following are a few means to help accomplish the work of the Leaders of Faith Foundation.
Soon after Congress convenes a breakfast is given as a time of fellowship, prayer, and dedication of our nation to God. Members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives meet for the Presidential Prayer Breakfast to which the President, his Cabinet, the Supreme Court, all members of the U. S. Senate and House of Representatives, government officials and other leaders are invited. State and Local leaders throughout the nation have followed this precedent by attending annual Prayer Breakfast for their own state leadership. The combined impact of these annual breakfasts is serving to awaken our nation to its spiritual need and heritage. It becomes a means to encourage others to consider the Person of Jesus and gathering together in a small group.
When Jesus brought together that first handful of friends, Andrew, Peter, James, and John, He demonstrated a way of life in which much depended upon close, intimate human relationship. The disciples became a group, not because they belonged to an organization but because they belonged to Jesus and to each other.
We believe that leadership groups are necessary:
- To provide for people of all backgrounds an opportunity, if desired, to be part of a fellowship centered in Christ.
- To provide training in everyday living affecting homes, industry, church, and government.
- To provide an opportunity for the practice of prayer and study of the Scriptures.
Visiting Community Leaders
A visit of one city leader to another city provides a natural occasion for community leaders to host them at a breakfast, luncheon, or dinner. This affords an opportunity for people to discuss what God is doing in their own lives as well as the spiritual and moral problems of our times.
Mentoring young leaders of today and tomorrow
We want to reach out to the community at large in sharing our faith as we live out our lives as believers and good citizens.
Mentoring is hard because we are seen exactly as we live. How trustworthy is our faith? The best question, “How Big Is Our God?” The answer, “Bigger than we can imagine.” Today, if someone mentored us right where we are and exhibited this Godly Power into our lives, what impact would that have on us? We would become better people, stronger Christians, shining examples of a life well lived.
