New Hope Christian Fellowship in Eagle Rock, California, recently hosted a Journey with the Master weekend attended by about 50 churched and unchurched teens and young adults, along with a score of older adults. The focus was to discover and deeply understand one’s identity in Christ.
Anthony Mullins, national coordinator of GCI Generations Ministries (GenMin), led the weekend using a guide for the first part of the four-part Journey with the Master, entitled “Epic Story.” Through a variety of speakers together with videos, conversation, games and testimonials, participants were helped to hear and reflect on what Anthony referred to as “the mind-boggling [epic] story that God is telling us.”
On the second day, everyone was invited to take a relationship styles assessment based on the book The Platinum Rule. The assessment shows not just what makes a person “tick,” but how they relate to others—helping them understand how God places each of us in the body of Christ to complement and work together. Along the way there was plenty of food, fellowship, and fun.
Many said they can hardly wait for the next part of the Journey! The older adults who attended were greatly encouraged by the variety and commitment of the youth who participated.
