4 - BLESS acronym LETTERS.jpg

Redeemer’s vision is to ‘be a growing local church with a global reach, multiplying and strengthening churches by raising leaders, releasing missionaries and resourcing pioneering.

B.L.E.S.S

In February 2021 at our Vision Sunday (part of our ‘Building Strong & Sending Well’ series) we unpacked our emphasis for the coming season using the acronym B.L.E.S.S. - reflecting our focus on Building Strong through seeing Leaders raised and released, Serving the poor, Starting & Sending sites and church plants all for the purpose of Evangelistic advance.

5 - Build strong.jpg
  • Building Strong to go long - long in reach and legacy

  • Dreams formed by;

    • Scripture

    • Specific prophetic words, and

    • Significant passions

  • Founded on the Lord and outworked in dependance on Him

  • Building, Staffing. Equipping

6 - Leaders raised.jpg
  • Pillars & Pioneers

    • Pillars - those who stay and are built upon

    • Pioneers - those who are sent

  • Bowman and Arrows

I do not wonder that you were saddened at the word of my going to South America… but remember how the Psalmist described children? He said that they were as an heritage from the Lord, and that every man should be happy who had his quiver full of them. And what is a quiver full of but arrows? And what are arrows for but to shoot? So, with the strong arms of prayer, draw the bowstring back and let the arrows fly—all of them, straight at the Enemy’s hosts
— Jim Elliot (who left a very promising career in the United States to serve as a missionary in South America, said to his parents when he made the decision)
9 - Evangelistic Advance.jpg

For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 CSB)

The way that God pre-eminently displays his love for this world is in sacrificially giving his best, his only son for the purpose of redemption. THAT is why we GIVE OUR BEST.

  • It is why we build strong, for the long haul. Labouring and leaving a legacy until Christ returns

  • It is why we must see leaders raised and released – for now, for growth here, for sending elsewhere, for generations to come beyond us

  • It is why we serve the poor, manifesting he very heart of God and His kingdom culture.

  • It is why we will start and send, new initiatives, new pioneering situations…

7 - Serving the poor.jpg

Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do. (Galatians 2:10 ESV)

  • Partner: with other organisations

    • People, provision

  • Passions: discover and develop that passions on your heart

    • EG: Modern day slavery, fostering & adoption, homelessness

  • Projects: we pioneer

    • Long term, sustainable and go beyond us in to the next generation

8 - Starting and  Sending.jpg

STARTING

  • Services: New services (already happened)

  • Sites: Locations?

  • Start ups: Church plants?
