The Big Think

The 4th Annual Big Think is carrying on its tradition of bringing church and non-profit leaders together from the region. We will continue to steal best ideas, borrow each others’ creativity and tease out from each other innovative workable plans for our ministries. We all have big goals and practical problems; we want to unlock our potential by having a Big Think together.   “We don’t know that what we’re missing is right in front of us.”

Gospel Conversations: Break Through to Substance

85% of people in the church today feel it is somebody’s else job to share the gospel. Change that mindset, equip every believer and we will impact the whole community for Christ. Get tools to share the Gospel in any context and move from simple to serious to significance to spiritual through practicing.

Save the date for 1/26/2019

We work as teams in and through sport to equip and train coaches and athletes to be the image of Christ in sport, to reach the unchurched through summer sports camps, to train youth to be leaders now and to partner across the world with sports ministry trips to “go and make disciples.

If you want to truly know a person, play a game with them. In one game you see bravery, fear, graciousness and bullying. In one season thrilling triumphs and humbling defeats are experienced. Sports reveals character and can be a vehicle to build character. WLS is a locker room of training and inspiration. Whether in a catalytic event–like KidsGames, the Bridge Conference–or in on going discipleship to athletes, coaches and parents of athletes, WLS works to equip people to become whole persons on the playing field of life.
