Sojourners and the TCT Network
We exist to make eternally joyful disciples of Jesus Christ through his word in the power of the Spirit to the global glory of God.
The "global glory of God" means that our mission is not just about Sojourners. We want to have the inclination to multiply and spread our mission to make eternally joyful disciples. We want to do that with people that we believe are committed to the word and the Spirit as the means of their making of disciples.
One of the sweetest partnerships we see this developing in right now is the TCT Network. Kelly and I had the pleasure of being on the other side of the table for assessments last week. That means we were assessing couples who were seeking to be a part of the TCT Network with us.
We had the pleasure of assessing the Mykkanen's (who you know well!) and the Tamfu's (who we support as missionaries). Both of those times went really well and were extremely precious times together to witness firsthand the grace of God at work in other people. We left so encouraged and it was truly a time drenched in the deep truths of the gospel and a deep dependence on the Lord. Needless to say, we LOVE TCT and what it stands for.
We want you to grow to love it and feel a part of it too. So, for the next three weeks we will have three TCT pastors preaching at Sojourners Church.
The goal is to weave the TCT Network into the life of our church. We want you to know these pastors and pray for these pastors and their churches. We want you to feel a part of this network with us, so we'll be working to find other ways to make that more of a reality too. Also, please let us know if there are ways you want to be involved or get more information. It feels like real partnership and work for the gospel with these brothers and sisters in this network and there is a deep affection building for them!
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both min my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.
So, join me in praying for all of them (get more information here: https://tctnetwork.org/) and welcome these faithful pastors the next three weeks as they serve us in bringing the word of God to us!
Together with you in the greatest mission,
