Key Man Conference – Becoming a Team

The first day of our Key Man conference was such an encouragement to hear how the men’s lives have changed, marriages transformed and how they are meeting with other men in their villages to challenge them to be agents of change in their communities. Today we are building on this idea of being agents of change and ways to do this together as a team.

Our Key Men with the IMPACT Gospel Planting Team

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17

Applying the Scripture

We are challenging the men to memorize the following passage from Isaiah, pray about it and ask God what He wants us to do as an “oak of righteousness”.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations.
Strangers will shepherd your flocks;
    foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
And you will be called priests of the Lord,
    you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
    and in their riches you will boast.

Instead of your shame
    you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
    you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
    and everlasting joy will be yours.

Isaiah 61:1-7
