Thank you @thebrooklyntabernacle Pastor Burgos for meeting with us and letting us learn from you!

We also attended @thejourneynyc (who we are meeting with later this week) and @timessquarechurch (who we weren’t able to coordinate a meeting with) 1. All three church services talked about Jesus, and why/how much we need Him! - AND gave some version of a #cometojesus prayer/altar call. (I know this is literally the “Jesus season” but, that’s still worth a shoutout!) 2. All three services were DRAMATICALLY different. (#sameteam - Different churches to reach all kinds of people! 🙌🏼🙌🏼) 3. Creativity is everywhere in these churches, it’s pretty cool to see. 4. Shout out to Lisa from TSC and her Holy Spirit inspired spoken word poetry! It. Was. 🔥! (Also, so amazed at the woman who told her testimony on stage after getting Baptized 2 minutes before!) (Check out my instastory for more thoughts and shout outs. Also, more First Impressions blogs coming soon at Kristaback.com) #FirstImpressions #Tourdechurches #NYC #FirstImpressionsforchurches #MyNCC #walkedmylegsoff #sotired

Here are a few of MANY things

Here are a few of MANY things we learned meeting with Mike Fabian from @hillsongnyc 1. Spend a great deal of time focusing on the “Why” long before expecting your team to ever understand the “what or how”. 2. Pour into your leaders, expect a lot from them, but be close to them and train them extensively. 3. Teach your leaders the difference between discipling and training their teams, and discipling on a more personal level. (They should be doing both of those things, but may not know how) 4. Train your leaders to recognize when their season is done. #leadertraining #FirstImpressions #Tourdechurches #NYC #FirstImpressionsforchurches #MyNCC #sameteam

We are celebrating all the foster and adoptive families that serve on the front lines for children in foster care this month for National Adoption Month. We know from families like the Hammonds at NCC that a loving family makes all the difference. 70% of all adoptions from foster care are by a child’s foster family. Today there are 5,000 children in our foster care system across the US that are being adopted into forever families. That’s something to celebrate!!!! #whatsyourbrave #myncc #nam2017 #adoptiongives

lis·ten /ˈlis(ə)n/ : to give one's attention⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Next week on December 7 at 7pm, we're hosting a Listen + Learn with Chef Majed and his wife, Walaa in LeDroit Park. While many people enjoy cooking, few can claim to have been a chef in a 4-star restaurant. Chef Majed has done that and more while living as a refugee, fleeing his homeland of Syria.⠀ ⠀ Come hear the incredible journey of Chef Majed and his wife Walaa from Syria to the United States and sample Majed's famous shawarma. This will be an intimate gathering designed for interactive learning, candid conversation, and honest curiosity. Majed and Walaa are exceptionally warm and hospitable, eager to meet you and share their experiences with you.⠀ ⠀ If you have been desiring to learn more about refugee care locally (or the refugee experience globally), please join us. We have space for only 35 guests though, so please do reserve your seat soon!⠀ ⠀ *All proceeds from the evening go directly to Majed and Walaa.⠀

The dichotomy of change: it’

The dichotomy of change: it’s exhilarating, daunting, exciting, terrifying, anticipatory, pensive... and everything bittersweet and in between. For 6 years I’ve worked at NCC. I’ve grown up here. I’ve grown here. But the time for change has come. Today is my last day on staff at NCC, and I’m incredibly grateful for the journey it has been. A new adventure is beginning. I’m heading to World Vision to work on the Capacity Development team in DC, cultivating staff culture through events and employee engagement initiatives. This opportunity combines all of the things I’m passionate about now with what’s been near to my heart for over a decade. I’m thankful, I’m overwhelmed, I’m pumped! Here we go!

A large part of our mission will be spent backpacking and camping with teenage boys, helping them overcome hurdles, obstacles and letting go of past hurts. Much like NCC, we are showing God’s love in unique and creative ways to the some of the most amazing boys on this planet!

We will spend time building relationships and learning from this community, as well as partnering with World Vision and Faith International Church to help meet some of the community needs such as home repair and kids' programming. Our intergenerational team will be working side-by-side with the local church as they show the love of Jesus to an often-forgotten community in our country.

#Repost @aoneeight ・・・ Did you know that hundreds of refugee families are resettled in the DMV area every month? Having endured so much already, there remain many challenges and adjustments for these families as they rebuild their lives here in America. Soccer is one of very few familiar things for newly resettled kids—and they LOVE to play! If you can smile, clap and high-five, then we have a role for you! ⠀ ⠀ Next summer, we will partner with Champions in Action DC to host a 5-day soccer camp specifically for refugee kids (U-14) in Maryland. Soccer or sport experience is highly recommended but not essential, as we will need volunteers to make lunches, run activities and build vital relationships with the kids. Camp will run Monday through Friday from 8:30a to 1p. No overnights necessary. #lovethroughsport #soccer #bendit #refugeesarewelcomehere #myncc #onmissioneveryday #sports #summercamp #getready

Loving and caring for our neighbor well is often both thoughtful and practical. Grateful for mission-driven businesses like @foodhinidc for providing a platform and employing a diverse set of talented chefs from all over the world.

On today’s TOUGH QUESTION TUESDAY, Pastor Dave sat down with Foodhini founder, Noobtsa Philip Vang and Chef Majed. They also shared their story with the staff @theaterchurch.
