Focalize – to align your sight to a focal point (The Vision)


  • Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not to your understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path,
  • No man CAN SERVE TWO masters. A house DIVIDED will fall.
  • Where there is UNITY, there is STRENGTH.


Objective – the goal of your actions (The Mission)

  • Enhance Spiritual Worship (enhance means: to raise to a higher degree)
  • Enhance Christian Service. (Grow our Church)


Concentrateintensify your efforts to fulfill the mission

  • Pray and Fast for wisdom and strength. To turn our church around in terms of membership lost and  spirituality  we got to P.U.S.H our way through. (pray until something happen)


Un-ambiguousno uncertainty or doubt as to the desired outcome (The Mission)

  • Have a made-up mind about: Don’t double minded, divisive, or subversive. Know:
  1. What we are doing?
  2. Why we are doing this?
  3. How we are doing this?
  4. When we are doing it?
  5. The benefits of our efforts


StrategyThe Plan to accomplish the mission.

  2. Leaders host F.O.C.U.S. meeting with their groups
  3. Setup a F.O.C.U.S. steering committee
  • Get the church onboard and behind the vision.
  1. Use the pulpit and church bulletins and etc... to share and promote the vision with the congregation

This Weeks Sunday School Lesson: “Mediator of the New Covenant”

Lesson Text: Hebrews 12:14, 15, 18-29 
Background Scripture: Hebrews 12:14, 15, 18-29; Psalm 66
Devotional Reading: Psalm 66


  • Hebrews 12:14, 15, 18-29 (KJV)
14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled. ……………………………………………….18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: 20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: 21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) 22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: 26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29 For our God is a consuming fire.
