vision night 2007 at hpc

vision night at healing place church last night

check out this cool passage dino rizzo shared about last night at the hpc vision night:

Leviticus 19:9 "When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field, nor shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest. 10 And you shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather every grape of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger: I am the LORD your God."

that’s the kind of God He is – when you harvest, leave some corners of blessing for the poor – maybe they’ll come later on and pick up what you leve behind. don’t get into the “it’s all for me” mindset. leave some for the poor. don’t hoard your time, treasure, talent, touch – save some for the poor and hurting, for God to use how He wants. God leaves the corners for us. that’s His kind of way of doing things.

here's a link to all my notes from last night: hpc vision night 2007 notes
and here's a link to dino rizzo's post about vision night - some more very cool thoughts stats from 2006 and vision for 2007: vision night 2007 on dinorizzo.com

check out this excerpt from his post, listing some of what we're believing God wants for us in 2007:
  • The opening of a second campus in Donaldsonville already happened this year.

  • We already this year opened the new Baton Rouge Dream Center.

  • In October this year, we plan to host our first national conference. The ladies go first - this will be a Women's Conference - like no other.

  • We already have sense God calling us to a new emphasis on prayer in the house.

  • We plan to launch our Mozambique campus - Isaac and Carol Williams are now on the ground in Africa - getting ready to pastor at Nkobe, Mozambique.

  • We plan to going to be a part of "Thirty Days of Hope for Cambodia" – Cambodia has faced some of the worst horror a nation has ever faced – 3 million died under a brutal dictator several years ago - a generation was wiped out. We’ll be there this summer along with several other ARC churches, and Joyce Meyer Ministries and others, helping restor a nation's hope.

  • HPC TV is slated to begin reaching up to 600,000 homes in 2006.

  • We plan to host summer camps for students, and kids and have VBS's that will reach more kids than ever.

  • We plan to start hosting what we're calling "HPC Experience" – opening up our doors to pastors and staffs from other churches for three special weekends where they can come and learn and grow while HPC gives them a 5-star treatment. Think of how many people you’ll be helping by helping these pastors increase their vision and capacities.

  • We are asking God to continue to put His “super” on our “natural” - in our ministry to women, men, youth, kids, singles, outreaches, life groups and events.

you might get sick of hearing me say it, but i love this church!
