Serving Leaders

whoever among you wants to be great must become the servant of you all, and if he wants to be first among you he must be your slave—just as the Son of Man has not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life to set many others free. Matthew 20:27-28

Serving Leaders

On the night before Jesus was crucified, He celebrated a special meal with His twelve disciples, that we know as "the last supper". It was His last chance to teach, encourage and convince this trusted inner circle of followers, of who He was, why He had come and what THEIR purpose would be.

Before the evening began Jesus did something remarkable. A task only the most humble (lowest in privilege) servant of the time would be required to do. He washed the disciples feet. This would have been a radical moment. He was breaking all the social norms for a teacher/rabbi of the time. The Gospel of John records it this way:

When Jesus had washed their feet and put on his outer clothing, he reclined again and said to them, "Do you know what I have done for you? You call me Teacher and Lord and you are speaking rightly, since that is what I am. So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done for you." John 13:12-15

The mission of Outreach Canada Ministries is to come alongside churches, pastors, ministry leaders and organizations; encouraging, equipping and providing resources as they make disciples of Jesus Christ. Over the next few weeks we will share stories of how that is taking place across Canada.

Transforming

Jesus Christ called people to leave behind empty words and practices, deny themselves and follow His example of love and sacrifice in faith depending on the grace and mercy of God to transform motives, thoughts and actions.

We believe that Jesus is still calling and transforming lives. Join us in spreading this good news and learning how to be fully committed followers of Jesus Christ.
