The 365/24 Church - Bringing Him for Them
Relational poverty is at a all time high. Technology and ironically social media have been proven to have ushered in more isolation and detachment that ever before. It's more important that ever for believers to get outside their comfort zone, and stay there to reverse these terrible trends.

God can show up and do miraculous things in the hearts of those without connection to Him when we reach out to those outside of our circles. Toren and Aidan Anderson, mother and son work year round to bring the message of the Gospel to others in unconventional and in seemingly "inconvenient" ways. They open their home and hearts to people they meet and continue to find new and interesting ways to connect to the lost and hurting through their service, giving and opening their lives to let others know they are loved and wanted. This is the time to reach beyond the pew. This session will be a creative and enlightening look at joyfully and compassionately pouring your lives out to the lost and possibly finding your calling in the process.

Toren and Aidan are authentically involved in such a wide spectrum of ministering. They believe love and humor and empathy can reach just about anyone. They will share their story of how the "old ways" of relating can and should be overthrown.
Also, this time will be a brainstorming session to discuss ways to incorporate giving/serving during events.

Time will fly and this will be unforgettable for participants. The Andersons say, "If we can do it, anyone can." Join them!
