The heart of the My City conference is to begin building bridges of relationship into each others’ lives. In Luke 5:1-11, Jesus calls Peter, James and John to be His disciples and delivers a powerful message that captivated their hearts. After these men had fished all night with no luck, they were instructed to cast their nets one last time, but this time into deeper water. Reluctantly, they obeyed Jesus and casted their nets, trusting that His word must be true.
“6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.” Luke 5:6-7
Most pastors can relate to this scripture on multiple levels. To see God move in such a powerful way, in regards to reaching people, would be exciting and supernatural. Yet at the same time, we all know what it is like to fish all night, week, month, year and feel like we aren’t making an impact.
The My City conference has been created for a breeding ground to create partnerships between pastors that will give encouragement, support and renewed passion. We are better together and want to see God do something astounding in our days. If God is going to bring revival to Northern California, there is no single church that could retain that large of a movement on their own. It is our belief that God wants to use the UNITY of ministries to bring revival to our region. When we value each other as friends, then the world will know us by our love for each other.
We encourage you to do what we often tell our own people to. Don’t come alone. If you find the heart of My City Conference to be something you are drawn to, then bring people along. The strength of this conference is found when many, from a single community, come and worship together. Find other churches in your city and rally them to be apart of the conference with you. Then, when you have all attended together you will return to “Your City” with one heart for what God wants to do.
