Teaching Series: Late Summer 2016

Jesus calls us to be ‘salt’ and ‘light’, to become a Godly influence wherever he has placed us. 

Joseph was a ‘nobody,’ the youngest son in a large family living way out in the country. Yet God chose him to become a man of great influence and consequently, as the Bible says “many were saved.”  

Joseph’s calling is our calling. His story is ours. Whoever we are, and wherever God has placed us our destiny is to become people of great influence and Joseph’s journey is our road map.
