INFLUENCER A 4-WEEK SERIES ON WISDOM
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA:  TO BE AN INFLUENCER, LIVE SMALL– DREAM BIG

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Whether it’s Instagram, YouTube, TV, or movies, we are constantly surrounded by “influencers.” But in reality, we are all influencers because we all influence others in some way, whether we mean to or not. We’re all already influencers, but the question is, “What kind of influencers will we be?” In this 4-week series, we’ll learn from a few key influencers in the Bible about what real influencers are like. They’re humble (not arrogant), chase good (not evil), live small (and dream big), and tell God’s story (not just their own).

Think about someone who shaped your future because of their influence during your teenage years. Someone who made you who you are today. Seriously, do it. Right now. Got a name? Great. Now consider this. A few years from now, a kid is going to be thinking the exact same thing about you. Pretty cool, right?

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
