Worldview @ The River Club
Nov 8 @ 7:30 am – 12:30 pm

What does it mean to think like a Christian . . . in economics and political science, literary criticism and imaginative writing, historical inquiry and philosophical studies, linguistics and the history of science, social theory, the arts and the character of government, in your home or at the office? “Failure to exercise the mind of Christ . . . has become acute in the twentieth century.”

Generosity @ City Rescue Mission
Dec 6 @ 7:30 am – 12:30 pm

In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus speaks of needs being generously met and lives being freed to love others. The sermon was his “white paper” on giving generously of your time, talents and treasure. Jesus explained that joy and blessing were found in pursuing God and His agenda. What topic then was most prevalent on Jesus’ agenda as He spoke that day on a mountainside? What was the main “talking point” as He sought to develop godly leaders? It was money.

Compassion @ TBD
Jan 10 @ 7:30 am – 12:30 pm

In Jesus’ inaugural address, He clearly outlined the theme of His leadership focus during His three and half year term on earth: . . . good news to the poor, freedom for prisoners, and release for the oppressed. Jesus was known for His compassion. His driving mantra was to love God and love your neighbor. His “neighbors” were the people nearby – His family, His team, and those whom His Heavenly Father brought near him each day.

Integrity @ Hidden Hills Golf Club
Feb 7 @ 7:30 am – 12:30 pm

In 2005 the Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary declared that the #1 Word of the Year was “integrity”. The corporate scandals of the day brought the issue of integrity front and center. People were seeking a source to define it for them. It is the character trait that is often the difference between sustained and failed leadership. It is as true today as it was two thousand years ago. Jesus aligned all that He did on the truth of scripture. He was questioned and challenged on numerous issues. There was a constant demand for His words and actions to align. Integrity may have been the most searched for term in Jesus’ era as well.

Humility @ Casa Marina Hotel and Restaurant
Mar 7 @ 7:30 am – 12:30 pm

Humility, the place of total dependence on God, is our primary duty and highest good. “Your attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had. Though He was God, He did not demand and cling to His rights as God. He made Himself nothing; He took the humble position of a slave and appeared in human form.”

Courage @ TBD
Apr 4 @ 7:30 am – 12:30 pm

When leaders are called upon by the Lord to be courageous, they are expected to defend, represent, live out and sometimes share their faith. Peter wrote later in his life, “Always be ready to give an answer for the hope that is within you.” The questions Peter was referring to were similar to the pointed question that Jesus asked of him, “Who do you think that I am?

Legacy and End-of- Journey Celebration @ Timuquana Country Club
May 15 @ 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm

How could one solitary life be so profound and have such a lasting impact on so many? How did Jesus’ impact become worldwide when He and his closest followers never traveled more than seventy-five miles from their obscure home district of Galilee? Why has His life shaped and stirred so many debates? Jesus never attended a university – wrote a book – held political office. He never lived in a city of regional influence like Jerusalem nor visited a city of worldwide impact like Athens or Rome. He did none of those things one usually associated with greatness. He had no credentials but Himself. What then did Jesus embody that enabled Him and defined Him? What shaped his unrivaled legacy? Love. What will you leave as your Legacy?
