Many people have fearless hearts, vibrant ideas and a passion for ministry. Their talents are to be nurtured to shape the church’s path into the future. The church must invite these people – including women, people of color, LGBTQ+ persons, the world over – into ministry, equip them to be effective leaders and be open to where they want to lead us, while strengthening all persons, who are ministering at every level of the church. The risk-taking church leaders of the early Christian movement used the ichthys symbol to identify themselves as followers of Jesus. The Freed-2-Lead graphic expands on this theme by contrasting the complacent social shoal in the “clear-water” moments of life, with a fish of a different color that has been “Freed-2-Lead” others through the dark and murky depths.
