God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.
1 Peter 4:10 NLT
The past few weeks, I’ve had multiple conversations about the spiritual gifts that the KB team have been given and the heart and future of the Ministry. All I can say is that God is good and the future looks bright!
Each conversation seemed to include two key words. At Kicking Bear, the word opportunity is twofold. First, and most importantly, we are giving youth and families the opportunity to hear the Gospel and to know that they too can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Second, we provide the opportunity for them to engage, interact, and learn new skills together in God’s Great Outdoors.
With that in mind, we are excited to announce our 2019 Giving Tuesday campaign: Give the Gift of Opportunity. This year, Giving Tuesday falls on December 3rd and we have a variety of goals we would like to achieve. Here’s the best part: All of you reading this have your own unique gifts that you can contribute as we continue to Give the Gift of Opportunity to at-risk and underprivileged youth across the nation.
We’ll keep you informed in the coming weeks and we ask that you please take time to reflect on your gifts and how you can use them well to serve one another.
You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”
2 Corinthians 9:7 NLT
