This was a brilliant idea…Blessings to all.
I had the honor of attending the first annual Epoch Awards this week on behalf of the organization I serve, Food for the Hungry, at the historic Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA. This event was extremely well put together and hosted by Jon Acuff & Naomi Zacharias. This event was masterminded by an amazing short term missions organization Adventures in Missions (AIM),
with the goal to serve and honor their peers in full time ministry and
missions without putting any attention to themselves. Not only were the
nominees honored amongst their peers for their humanitarian and kingdom
work, some were also presented various grants to assist them in their
ministry endeavors.I was able to learn about over 18 different
organizations that are making a huge impact all over the world, as
opposed to just ONE. Some by raising serious money through technology
efforts, serving individuals and communities through several aspect of
athletics, as well as putting a major dent in alleviating the death toll
caused by HIV AIDS in Africa, along with so many more. I stood humbled
and inspired while in the midst of so many selfless and giving
individuals in this room. I wish you all could have been there to
experience the stories that I heard about various individuals as well as
the energy in the room to serve the kingdom of God by serving and
speaking on behalf of those around them in need and that those that
can’t speak up for themselves.
Thanks for the re-post Seth. Great to know you!
Loved Daniel’s words — he nailed it with “servants honoring servants”. That sums up Epoch so perfectly. Well done, Seth & team!
It was such a great and God-honoring night. Thanks Seth.
Sorry I missed it, I was out of country….sounds like it was a wonderful event! Blessings.
