Why Big 3?

At the beginning of 2020, Carmel's elders took time to pray and fast asking God for direction for the next decade. Out of that time, the Lord led us to three God-sized goals for the decade which we began to refer to as the Big 3 - it stuck. These goals are an extension of our mission to make disciples of those nearest, our neighbors and the nations.

Our Big 3 goals are:

  • Gospel Generation - Equipping every member to intentionally engage in disciple-making
  • Gospel Multiplication - Church planting with a goal to plant or revitalize 25 churches
  • Gospel Proclamation - Impacting unreached people groups and those without Scripture in their own language (includes Bible Translation)

The reality is the goals God has given us are big... in fact, they are impossible (in our own strength). Unless God moves, none of this will be possible. We are called to build spiritual habits and soak each goal in prayer, this year and years ahead.  Let's be diligent to intercede and be open to what God reveals to each of us.

Carmel Family - 2030 is not far off! In addition to praying, how is God calling you to make an impact in one or more of these goals?
