“Every single man and woman all over the world experiencing Christ.” This was the vision presented to over 300 Singles for Christ leaders from all over the world at the 1st SFC Global Leaders Summit last February 22-23, 2009, in Cebu City.
Top leaders from all over the Philippines and the international SFC community came to the Global Leaders Summit to hear and discuss the new SFC Vision in this two-day gathering. The international community was well represented as delegates from Indonesia, China, Singapore, East Timor, Australia, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Seychelles, Netherlands, and Ireland came to participate.
The vision for SFC casts the ideal future state not only of the ministry but of the whole world. It presents a picture of the future that every SFC should work to build-- a world where every person’s life is an ongoing experience of Christ. The vision puts into perspective the scope of the mission which is to bring Christ’s love to everyone by being Christ experiences to others everyday and everywhere. And just as important as being Christ experiences to others, SFC members were reminded that they should also strive to experience Christ every day, under any circumstance.
The atmosphere of the Global Leaders Summit was Spirit-filled, personal, and very intimate despite the large group. After the vision was presented, small and diverse discussion groups, just like households, were formed to discuss the personal impact of the vision to each participant. A very emotional and inspiring sharing followed as members talked about how the vision affected them as leaders and also how it spoke to them as individuals.
The event was concluded with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, which marked four straight days, from the International Conference to the Global Leaders Summit, of SFC members not only listening to talks, attending workshops, and worshipping, but spending time with God through the Mass.
