2. Kingdom Minded

 a.   Scripture – Matt 6:19-21 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”

3. Individual Focus

a.   Scripture – John 4:7-15 -“Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.” He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food. The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans, She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.” …. Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”   “Please, sir,” the woman said, “give me this water! Then I’ll never be thirsty again, and I won’t have to come here to get water.”

b.   Demonstrated By

I. Connecting with each participant on an individual level, recognizing their story and our role in it
II. Treating one on one interactions as moments of truth to make a positive impact
III. Committing to prayer and follow up with every relationship
IV. Recognizing that every interaction is part of our repetitive contact philosophy, which stands to have the best impact on a life over single interactions

4. Family Oriented

a.   Scripture – John 13:34 – “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.”

5. Innovative

a.   Scripture – 1 Corinthians 9:19-22 – “Even though I am a free man with no master, I have become a slave to all people to bring many to Christ.  When I was with the Jews, I lived like a Jew to bring the Jews to Christ. When I was with those who follow the Jewish law, I too lived under that law. Even though I am not subject to the law, I did this so I could bring to Christ those who are under the law. When I am with the Gentiles who do not follow the Jewish law, I too live apart from that law so I can bring them to Christ ….” When I am with those who are weak, I share their weakness, for I want to bring the weak to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some.”
