Key Verse:

Jesus said, Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. (Matthew 5:17)

 

For Such a Time as This
By Pastor Jon Haakana

Our congregation met last month (June 20) in our Vision Assembly where the work plan for the new fiscal year was discussed and approved. There was a great response to the invitation, and many attended to discuss God’s work for us at Mount Olive.

I reminded those in attendance of a 10-year focus for our mission which I introduced in 2014. It is called MOLC 2024. It was a two-fold plan:

1) Make everyone at MOLC part of God’s mission, letting the church walls become windows to our community. Changing corporate and personal focus from inward to outward.

2) Develop and create a “mission outpost” or “missional community.” We have a front door to our church for the community to enter, but we need to think of some “side doors” where we can reach more people from our community, especially those called millennials (age 18-35).

That’s why last year the congregation voted to call a young pastor to reach youth and young adults. We did not receive a candidate from the seminary in April this year through which I believe God was not saying “no,” but “not yet.”
