Luke 9:1-17

Luke 9:1-17/ Matthew 14:13-21/ Mark 6:7-12 and 30-44/ John 6:1-14

Four Principles That Hugely Impact The Way
We Do Ministry Here At North Coast

1. Christianity is a team sport
Mark 6:7/ 3 John 9-10/ Hebrews 10:24-25/ Matthew 22:36-40/ John 13:35

- Ministry is not a sole proprietorship

- Spirituality is not a private relationship between "me and my God"

- When you read your Bible - read the word "you" as "you all"

2. Good starts don't guarantee happy endings

Mark 6:31-34/ 1 Corinthians 9:19-27
