Community is Key

Something I’ve noticed in my almost two years of being on the road is how difficult it can be to stay connected with the people you love. You’re busy, they’re busy.. everybody is busy, and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it makes maintaining relationships tough.

One of the biggest parts of our ministry is making connections, and we meet hundreds of new people a week. I love this part of what we do. We’ve blogged about amazing host homes and great conversations we’ve had with people we’ve just met, and we try to be really intentional in those interactions. But, when I stop to think about it, I wonder if I’m that intentional with the community I was already a part of. I have an amazing family. They are my biggest supporters and greatest blessing. I have incredible friends, ones whom I know I will be friends with for life. We’d do anything for each other. However, as much as I know that these people will always be there if I need them, it’s incredibly easy to relegate them to the back of my mind and focus on where I am and what I’m doing now.

Let me backtrack for a minute. Being present here and now is very important, especially as missionaries sharing the love that is Jesus Christ, and the joy and salvation we can find in Him. Something we talk about nearly every set is community, and how important it is to go deeper and be more intentional with the people around you. As a team traveling together full time, this is our present community. We need each other, and we also need to be challenged and grow as a whole. We need to make connections as we travel from place to place. However, this isn’t our only community. As hard as it might be to think about, this isn’t our forever. We’ll move on from touring and potentially/most likely from CTI at some point, perhaps back home and into the circles we were a part of previously. On the flip side, maybe we’ll move on and into something new, away from the company and care of those we know.

Either way, it is important to preserve and cultivate (and possibly even revive) those relationships that God has given us (whether a product of CTI or prior), and to truly walk in community and love with the people that we do life with or will be doing life with. We can't become islands, trying to go at it on our own. We need each other. We were made to walk together, not alone, and yet it is so easy to let other things get in the way of maintaining relationship with the people that God has put in our lives. These people have been placed there for a reason, and it would be folly to let that fall to the wayside. I don't want that. I want to live life as God intended, in community with Him, and with other believers, learning from and growing with them daily, and, above all, giving God the glory for the joy (and struggle, let's be honest) and reward that is the body of Christ. 

 

 


And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

- Hebrews 10:24-25

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

- Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

A Grateful Heart

The longer we're on the road, the more and more I realize how important of a role our supporters play in this ministry. 
The host homes in particular are people that I have grown to be more thankful for over the course of the year. I recognize the sacrifices they make to accommodate us, by giving us places to stay in their houses, providing meals for us, taking us around town or just letting us rest and sleep in on a day off...the list goes on. Even on days that I get back from a long day of driving or performing multiple concerts, it is a blessing to come to a house full of friendly faces, warm smiles and cheerful attitudes.

 

Here are the some of the fun things we've done with hosts these past few weeks:

Our hosts in Oklahoma took us to see the the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

13063980 10209503082877434 1783893818 o

I took a walk outside with the hosts and enjoyed the scenic walk in Elizabeth, Colorado.

 

13078211 10209503206000512 1787820345 o

The team had lots of fun drinking bubble tea, singing songs and eating s'mores together around the bonfire with our contacts.

 

For all the host homes across the country we've stayed with this past year, I am truly grateful. You really are an important part of this ministry!Ultimately, to our hosts, contacts, blog readers, and all other supporters (financial, prayer etc.), thank you for not only choosing to invest in this ministry, but also investing in the kingdom of God. May God give you an extraordinary amount of joy for serving Him in the ways that you do. Your rewards are in heaven!


"I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ."
Philippians 1:3-6 (ESV)

The One About Small Things and Rest

A lot of life here at CTI (and being a missionary in general) consist of "rush and wait."  For the people who are free-flow in their plans and for those who like to have a scheduled order of events, this can be frustrating and enjoyable all at the same time.


I have felt like a lot of this year has been a lot of running around, very little waiting, and not catching my breath (figuratively most of the time but a few literal breaths as well).  Eventually, the gas in my little engine runs dry and I am forced to stop working.


Here in Washington, we have been given that exact opportunity.  Our morning have been "off" (as in we decide how to use our mornings).  My mornings have consisted of working (whether on ministry work here or supporter projects for once we finish touring).  Ours afternoons have consisted of working on team meetings and projects.  Recently, I felt exhausted and we still had dinner and a workshop to run that evening.  I was surprised what our team walked into next.


The church that was hosting us wanted to give us some time to really slow down and enjoy the moment.  All eight of us sat under a canopy (imagine what a tail-gating tent looks like and you have the general idea), with lights strung around the perimeter, and had a multi-course meal served to us.


After all the courses were served out, they had a surprise for us.  Home-made packages of each of our favorites snacks stated at the beginning of the year (some answers have changed and some have not...one of the few constants in life is change).  Being a super-sensitive person, I almost started crying.  My tears were not of sorrow or of joy but of being overwhelmed.


The detail into their meal, the decision to serve us, the ability to rest and relax with these wonderful people, the attention they took to getting just what they would imagine each of us wanting from our answers in our video.  It was an out pour of love that was given in a short hour.


Just as the church showed an out-pour of love in a short amount of time in the little things of life, we must be reminded that the ultimate out-pour of love ever given was the love of Christ.


So sometimes, I need to remind myself to slow down, rest for a bit (and maybe catch my breath), and care about the little things in life as well as the big things.


Here are some of the details from that dinner.

Unpack Those Boxes

We have made it to Washington and just left Montana! Our host have been so amazing! The views have been absolutely breathtaking.
I wasn't sure what to write about in this blog but God has been slowly revealing what it means to have identity in Him.  I recently shared these following thoughts on my personal blog and I think it is something that we could all be challenged by. 


One thing I don’t understand is, why society tries to put everybody into a box. 

I’m a Christian (box), I’m black (box), I’m a male (box), I’m a black male in the United States (yes that’s a totally different box), I’m a performer (box) - and there are probably 15+ more boxes that belong to the name Bradley J. Banks. Even more that I can place myself in, more from my friends and family and even more from my enemies.

Often times I’m afraid to face or even step into my destiny because I’m afraid of the boxes that people will start trapping and labeling me with. I believe that once I’m put into a box I won’t be able to get out or even put myself into them to feel more secure.

Isn’t that what life is supposed to be? You pick your box, live, get comfortable, settle down, and expect to be happy in your box.

Even in my faith I put God in a box - with what He can and cannot do.

 This manifests in ways like when I think that He’s not going to provide, that He’s not going to be my shelter, or that He’s not there when I need Him. Quite honestly, that is a sin we are all guilty of. Even though I know He is calling me to do great things, the truth is, I’m afraid. I’ve allowed fear to let me down time and time again.

 If it was up to me I would go pick out the best, brightness, biggest box that I could buy and be content for the rest of my life but that’s not what I’ve been called for. That’s not what makes my heart beat faster. That’s not the life that I’m intended to live. I cannot continue to let people cultivate my life and experiences. Comfort is nice but serving the Lord can be quite uncomfortable at times.

God says this in John 15:16. “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you."

I challenge y'all as we are encouraged to unpack our boxes as a team that you will think about ways you continually put God into a box. I encourage you to unpack and allow God to do work in your life. He wants to use us all we just have to be willing to answer when He calls.

    While in country, they will be working with YWAM Taiwan. Reaching youth with the gospel can take many years in Taiwanese culture. YWAM builds long-term relationships with students here through a coffee shop ministry known as “The Rock.” CTI teams connect kids with YWAM through evening coffeehouse concerts and conversational evangelism with students who are eager to practice their English on Americans. During the days, teams minister in hospitals, schools, and through open-air concerts on the bustling streets and wharfs of Taipei.

    Partner: Local Ministries


    Local ministries use CTI teams to connect with the young people of their country through music that is exciting and recognizable to Singaporean youth. They have been established as a band "that sings meaningful songs,” and carefully crafts programs using specific themes that are relevant to their students. This approach has created a large fan base that attracts many young people to CTI concerts in Singapore. As a result, our partners have significant opportunities for evangelism and discipleship.

    In addition to a packed appearance schedule in the malls, streets, parks and churches of Hong Kong, our teams also minister in the public schools here, giving YFC opportunities to present the gospel that wouldn’t be possible without our team’s presence. CTI also plays a crucial role in YFC’s unique outreach to the elderly; a people group that is tragically neglected by this busy society. YFC provides basic needs and opportunities for significance by involving them in our team’s events. The gospel isn’t just heard here – it is experienced.

    YFC Guatemala seeks to reach 10,000 young people with the gospel every year through the G-21 initiative; a network of churches and ministries that disciple youth who respond to gospel. CTI plays a central role in this initiative by bringing exposure to YFC through a nationwide appearance schedule in schools, churches and public places. The National Day of Prayer is an annual event coordinated by YFC here, and it serves as a rallying point for their ministry. CTI plays a role in this event each year, building on a partnership with YFC in Guatemala dating back to 1996.

    CTI is very excited about the opportunity to return to YFC Zimbabwe as it has been over a decade since the ministry has partnered with this organization.  YFC Zimbabwe is, in many ways, going through a lot of changes and with that trying out new methods of ministry.  They see CTI as an organization that can join them in this endeavor.  For this team, they will seek to join YFC Zimbabwe in their goal of ministering to those who have fewer social advantages than other people groups while focusing on helping YFC Zimbabwe build long term relationships with the people they minister to.  All this, while centering their message on the hope and freedom that is only found in Christ.

    One of the goals of YFC Japan is to "build bridges between secular people and Christians."  They place a high value on relationship and a subjective sharing of one's faith, and thus seek opportunities that allow them to build personal relationships with the people they minister to.  Some of the bigger struggles in Japan include loneliness, depression, and purposelessness, and because of this, the team will be equipped to proclaim a message of hope, belonging, and self-worth.  Making cultural connections is key to their ministry and the team will seek to do just that, speaking directly to the needs of the audience and presenting the truth of the Gospel as it applies to Japanese culture.

One particular venue the team will spend some time at is "The Rock"--YWAM's own coffeeshop ministry that focuses on building long term relationships with those they minister to.  All in all, this team will be a part of a long term vision, one that seeks to build relationships, share the Gospel, and help people mature in their faith.

    Mauricio, the director of YFC Honduras, uses every opportunity available to preach the Gospel.  CTI teams grant him a unique and different way to do that.  In many ways, CTI allows him to meet more people and create further conversations with people down the road.  Relationships are highly valued in Honduran culture and though the team won't be able to personally follow up long term with the people they minister to, YFC pursues those new connections, at times with youth they may not have been able to connect with otherwise.  The people of Honduras highly value the ideas of strength, freedom, and unity.  The YFC staff in particular value the message that there is freedom in Christ and through their own personal stories, minister to others by proclaiming the liberation Christ offers from sin, shame, worry, addiction, and self-destructive behavior.

    CTI teams play a big role in the ministry of YFC Guatemala each year.  They provide a sort of push that allows the YFC to interact with youth that they normally wouldn't be able to.  Teams themselves don't often get as much of that interaction time, but their works pave the way for YFC to continue forging relationships.  In Guatemalan culture, relationships take a very high priority, and as such are essential for the sharing of the Gospel.  YFC Guatemala also seeks to focus on drawing Christians deeper into what they believe so that they can go beyond simply knowing the "facts" of the Gospel.  All in all, the team will partner alongside and support the ministry of the YFC, seeking to be that push which strengthens the work the YFC has been doing and will continue to do long after the team's time in country is complete.

    YFC Singapore has a very clear vision of how they will use a CTI team.  Often times, they even develop the music repertoire themselves, going as far as crafting set-lists for the various places the teams are set up to appear.  CTI teams are used to heighten interest in a large finale event or to create opportunities for personal relationships to form between the YFC staff and CTI's audiences.  YFC Singapore will use the team to draw crowds and set up future opportunities where the Gospel can be boldy presented.  Personal relationships are very important in Singaporean culture as building long term relationships often precedes sharing the Gospel, so teams may not see the fruit of their work.  However, YFC Singapore will continue to pursue the relationships the team helps to build long after the team's time in country is complete.
