Having a Heavenly Perspective

June 5, 2017

Today there is a constant battle for your mind and heart. New Channels, ad agencies, social agencies, various causes, movements, political parties are all fighting for to have you come into agreement with their perspective. They want you to see their perspective of various social issues, causes and world views. At the very same time God is also calling you to come into agreement with His perspective. He wants you to have a heavenly lens by which you see the world around you. We have a choice each day. Whose perspective will we come into agreement with?

Let heaven fill your thoughts; don’t spend your time worrying about things down here. You should have as little desire for this world as a dead person does.

This is our first ever Take the City conference and we are so excited to host International speaker and author Robby Dawkins as our Keynote speaker. Robby and his wife Angie have been married for almost 20 years and have 6 boys ranging from 2 -19. Robby is a fifth generation pastor who was born to missionary parents in Japan. He served as a youth pastor for 12 years for churches between 50 to 14,000 members before he and Angie planted a Vineyard church in the downtown area of Aurora, Illinois (Chicago area) 15 years ago. Their church has many gang members, drug addicts, and prostitutes and just simply down and outers as well as a few middle class. Yet God has shown up to powerfully change these people’s lives through this pastor and church. The mayor of Aurora along with it’s chief of police recently bestowed upon Robby and the Vineyard an acknowledgment that he and his Vineyard church have made a significant difference in Aurora’s crime rate reduction. For the 1st time in 66 years Aurora, IL was declared homicide free in 2012.

Robby has a deep passion to equip the Church and he ministers extensively to do so (in the U.S. and in 38 countries) in various Denominational and Nondenominational circles in Power Evangelism. He was most recently featured in the movie documentaries “Furious Love” in 2010 and “Father of Lights” in 2012.
