Latest News and Schedule

2016-2017 Journey Schedule
Worldview - November 3, 2016 - 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM
Location: The River Club (1 Independent Dr # 3500, Jacksonville, FL 32202)
National Speaker: Gordon Pennington of Burning Media Group
What does it mean to think like a Christian . . . in economics and political science, literary criticism and imaginative writing, historical inquiry and philosophical studies, linguistics and the history of science, social theory, the arts and the character of government, in your home or at the office? "Failure to exercise the mind of Christ . . . has become acute in the twentieth century."
Generosity - December 1, 2016 - 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM 
Location: The Potter's House
National Speaker: Bishop Vaughn McLaughlin, Potter's House International Ministries
In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus speaks of needs being generously met and lives being freed to love others. The sermon was his "white paper" on giving generously of your time, talents and treasure. Jesus explained that joy and blessing were found in pursuing God and His agenda. What topic then was most prevalent on Jesus' agenda as He spoke that day on a mountainside? What was the main "talking point" as He sought to develop godly leaders? It was money.
Compassion - January 12, 2017 - 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM 
Location: TBD
National Speaker: Bob Lupton, author of "Toxic Charity"
In Jesus' inaugural address, He clearly outlined the theme of His leadership focus during His three and half year term on earth: . . . good news to the poor, freedom for prisoners, and release for the oppressed. Jesus was known for His compassion. His driving mantra was to love God and love your neighbor. His "neighbors" were the people nearby - His family, His team, and those whom His Heavenly Father brought near him each day.
Integrity - February 2, 2017 - 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM 
Location: TBD
National Speaker: Brad Rex, Pres/CEO – Founder Partners Group
In 2005 the Merriam-Webster's Dictionary declared that the #1 Word of the Year was "integrity". The corporate scandals of the day brought the issue of integrity front and center. People were seeking a source to define it for them. It is the character trait that is often the difference between sustained and failed leadership. It is as true today as it was two thousand years ago. Jesus aligned all that He did on the truth of scripture. He was questioned and challenged on numerous issues. There was a constant demand for His words and actions to align. Integrity may have been the most searched for term in Jesus' era as well.
Humility - March 2, 2017 - 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM 
Location: TBD
National Speaker: TBD
To make humility a reality, Jesus dedicated the final six months of His life on earth to modeling specific steps toward humility. This was the Transition Period of the Jesus Journey. He made it His mission - "I must suffer many things and be rejected" - and the focus of His miracles (Lazarus' death and His resurrection). He humbled himself to become fully man and endured desertion, denial, betrayal and crucifixion. It was the period when Jesus modeled the deepest levels of humility by inviting His team to observe and learn what it meant to "die to yourself".
Courage - April 6, 2017 - 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM
Location: TBD
International Speaker: Carla Harris, Vice Chairman, Wealth Management, Managing Director and Senior Client Advisor, Morgan Stanley

When leaders are called upon by the Lord to be courageous, they are expected to defend, represent, live out and sometimes share their faith. Peter wrote later in his life, "Always be ready to give an answer for the hope that is within you." The questions Peter was referring to were similar to the pointed question that Jesus asked of him, "Who do you think that I am?"
Legacy and End-of-Journey Celebration - May 18, 2017 - Times to be determined
Location: TBD
National Speaker: Louis Upkins
How could one solitary life be so profound and have such a lasting impact on so many? How did Jesus' impact become worldwide when He and his closest followers never traveled more than seventy-five miles from their obscure home district of Galilee? Why has His life shaped and stirred so many debates? Jesus never attended a university - wrote a book - held political office. He never lived in a city of regional influence like Jerusalem nor visited a city of worldwide impact like Athens or Rome. He did none of those things one usually associated with greatness. He had no credentials but Himself. What then did Jesus embody that enabled Him and defined Him? What shaped his unrivaled legacy? Love. What will you leave as your Legacy?
