Having a solid Christian community can be the difference between you walking in your purpose and giving up at the sight of the first obstacle.
The people around you matter. When you set out to do the powerful work of God designed you for through your purpose, there will be obstacles. There is nothing like having a community of faith-filled Believers who rally to support you. This is why I invited the founder of Black Christian Influencers (BCI) on the show to break down building a christian community.
Jackie Horbrook also known as @jackietheeducator is a millennial trailblazer from Chicago, Illinois. With a Masters of Education and a Bachelor’s degree in Business, she hopes to become known as a Kingdom solutionist. Through her internet show Higher Learning, counseling initiatives in the city of Chicago, and music ministry at her local church she aims to edify the body of Christ anyway she can. Her most recent endeavor has led her to create an organization called Black Christian Influencers that focuses on promoting, supporting, and encouraging kingdom builders from varying career backgrounds. As an ordained minister her primary focus will always be to enhance the kingdom of God using all the gifts God has given her.
Jackie is the perfect person to shed light on building a christian community.
In this episode we covered…
- The moment Jackie recognized that community building was her gift
- Starting Black Christian Influencers
- The necessity for Black Christian Influencers to have their own space
- The importance of Believers having a solid Christian community
- Jackie’s challenges as she built BCI
- What keeps her going in moments when she wants to quit
- How she balances BCI and her purpose while preventing them from eclipsing her relationship with God with him
