Lesson 1 Review:
"Next-Gen Mindset"

To make a difference in the lives of people you'll never meet invest in those you do!

Our influence is powerful because it reaches beyond our…
• Expectations (Results far exceed our hopes)
• Knowledge (Reaches people whose stories we'll never hear)
• Abilities (God's presence increases our usefulness exponentially)
• Lifetime (Though our labors end here...God's use of them doesn't)

The opposition we face is temporary, but the fruit we bear is eternal.

I serve because???

I serve because… Jesus loves everyone, including me!
