We believe in the worth and giftedness of those within SIM and of those we seek to serve because every person is uniquely made in God’s image. Because of this we seek to live as lifelong learners by giving and receiving discipleship and encouraging development. We learn and grow best together. The task before us is referred to by Paul, writing to Timothy, “What you have heard from me… entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others” (2 Timothy 2:2 ESV). Discipleship, mentoring and training all relay the idea of investing in others. All of us need someone investing in us and someone in whom we are investing. Community is about giving and receiving, and learning and growing together. Thank you for investing in these kinds of relationships over the next two months, by prayer.
