"Net" Work

Since we all belong to the same Body, it is good to reach out and connect to other movement ministers for fellowship and support. We are to be "fishers of men," and so our networking should ultimately lead to how we can add souls to the Kingdom. There are many wonderful organizations that offer memberships to movement ministers for connectivity and support.

The trend of late seems to be that people attend conferences, workshops, and dance events to rub elbows with the instructors, or recruit an audience for their own personal ventures. People also join networking organizations so that they can "name drop" and say that they are associated with this great name in the dance "Kingdom." While it is great that people are aware of our gifts, it is the motive that matters (what's in the heart?). Some people will share an entire dance resume with you because they really want you to invite them out to teach at your church or conference.

We must get back to the Great Commission. Your gift will make room for you and bring you before great men. You do not have to make room for your gift. When we are about our Father's business, then the real "net" working will begin.

Matthew 4:19 (NKJV)
Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
