National Conference 2017

Labouring for a Lifetime

“The harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out labourers into his harvest field.” (Matt 9:37-38)

With all the resources of heaven at his disposal, Jesus looked over the helpless crowds and encouraged his closest followers to ask God for what they truly needed…more labourers. Ordinary people, doing ordinary things. Down in the fields. Rolling up their sleeves and getting their hands dirty . . . What an unusual and seemingly underwhelming thing to request. So why did Jesus pray for more of them? And furthermore, what defines a labourer and who can be one?

During this Conference, Mike explored these questions and more as we sought to understand the meaning and implications of Jesus’ instruction.
