HMCC Highlights

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Victories

God is doing some awesome things in HMCC of Ann Arbor and in HMCC of Chicago. We are trying to publish a “HMCC Highlights” newsletter to keep all of you up-to-date of what God is doing in our churches. It is an opportunity to brag about what God is doing and to make Him famous.

We are trying to keep all our alumni in the loop of God’s faithfulness to HMCC. Also, as our church is growing we are trying to keep all the various lifestages up-to-date with the other lifestages.

It is my prayer that through this avenue we will be able to see God’s Goodness and worship Him for His Greatness and constantly trusting in His Graciousness.

You can check out some of the highlights here.

I pray that many of the alumni can write in and share with us how God is using you to send ripples out to the nations. We would love to hear from you.

Commissioning Men

Yesterday was another full day. It was packed with some great stories of God’s transformative power in the lives of people and even in nations. We heard from Suliasi Kurulo, who serves in Fiji and has planted 1,000 churches in 100 different nations; and also David Sobrepena, who serves in Philippines has trained up 270,000 leaders.

As I interacted with some of these leaders, I was reminded that they are ordinary people who have the passion, humility, and the obedience to follow hard after God. In the evening, there was a banquet for all the conference attendees. But the highlight of the banquet was the commissioning service. There were men who were getting commissioned in the men’s ministry and they all received a sword as their badge of honor. It was pretty inspiring to see these men lift up their swords as they consecrated themselves to God.

I am convinced that we need to raise up more godly men in our church. This is the only way we can reach families, communities and the world.

This morning we had one of the giants of the men’s ministry come and minister to us. Pat Morley, who wrote “Man in the Mirror,” shared from his life some powerful stories about what happens to several generations of families when one man makes a decision that is not in line with God’s will.

Then we ended the gathering with a powerful time of anointing. Some of the leaders anointed the participants with oil and prayed for God’s anointing on our lives.

I am ready to come back to the HMCC family and start giving out the rally cry for men to be “uncaged” and live out the purposes of God that He has given specifically to the men in this generation.
