Our Outcomes: “Christ Above All” God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name. (Philippians 2:9) Artist. Artistically excellent. We are called to give God our best, and nothing less. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. (Psalm 33:3) Follower. Spiritually formed. As we like to say around here, “Everything is spiritual.” Make every effort to be found spotless, blameless, and at peace with him. (2 Peter 3:14) Servant. Relationally thriving. In the kingdom of heaven, the way up is down. Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wsants to be first must be slave of all. (Mark 10:43-44) Leader. Intentionally discipling. We are learning to be bold enough to say, “Follow me, as I follow Christ.” Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:19)
