2009 Northeast Evangelism Seminar

It's what we live for!

The Northeast Evangelism Seminar: July 10-12, 2009!

The theme for the 2009 Northeast Evangelism Seminar is “Live for Christ”! In just over four weeks from now, disciples sent out from the Syracuse International Christian Church over the past three years to plant churches in Chicago and Washington D.C. will be returning to give glory to God and to see to it that everyone’s faith is mutually encouraged!

In the first century, Paul was able to encourage the Philippian disciples from a jail cell with only his faith and his pen! In Philippians 1:20-22 he writes one of the most moving passages about his heart to follow Jesus:

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me.”

Whatever twists and turns Paul’s life took, his goal never changed: to honor God by living for Christ. And his soaring faith was never dampened by trials and persecution that would come from outside and even from within the body of Christ! Paul knew that discipleship works . . . living for Christ would always mean FRUITFUL labor.

It is with great joy that we Syracusan disciples welcome all of our brothers and sisters to fellowship with us; to grow from the powerful, biblical messages; to build on the Spirit’s unity and to strategize for the evangelization of the world in our generation, just as Paul did in his.
