RESOURCES FOR INFLUENCE

There’s something within all of us that wants to make things better.

In a world that is hurting, broken, and divided, how can we leverage the influence each of us has to make a difference? How do we best share the message of hope with those around us?

Below is a collection of resources from our series, The Art of Influence, as well as other related resources.

We encourage you to use them to ask God to show you how He uniquely wants to use YOU to impact others.

Have you ever had something so good you couldn’t help but share about it? Maybe it’s a movie you watched, a restaurant you went to, or a fun trip you went on. But when it comes to something as significant as what we believe… why does it become so hard to share?

Tune in as special guest speaker Hosanna Wong uncovers the truth about how to be a REAL influence to people all around us, wherever we are.

One of the most powerful ways we can partner with God is through prayer. Below is a Prayer Guide that you can use to ask God to bless specific people in your life, whether at home, work, or elsewhere. You can also print it out and incorporate it into your regular prayer routine.

The Power of Preparation
The Art of Influence (Pt. 3) | May 30, 2021 | Filipe Santos

When was the last time you felt deeply loved and appreciated?

Did you know that increasing our influence is directly tied with how we love and value people? We are called to love each other, and how we set the table and make room for others matters.

Watch this message by Pastor Filipe Santos as we explore how to prepare ourselves and our environments to influence others – both collectively and individually.

Here is a free resource based on the message. Take some time and use it to reflect on practical ways you can “set the table” for others.
