I recently had the honor of being invited to be the guest speaker at NCS Winston-Salem.  Our brudders down South seem gentile, but don't be fooled.

Friendship

Coming out of the Annual Retreat in March, the NCS Leadership, which represents a core group of Chapter Leaders, met to discuss Bob Buford’s compelling question to NCS, ‘To What End?’ as we become more intentional about the network and how we pursue this mission together.   We are all partners in this movement and are coming together in that spirit to form a Management Committee to model partnership and to be a faithful presence.

As you know, the NCS Mission Statement reads as follows:

The New Canaan Society is a network of men joined by a common desire for a deep and abiding friendship with Jesus, and lasting and transparent friendships with each other.

The mission and purpose of NCS is to connect men who seek and value such friendships, to work together in partnership and to encourage and equip each other to experience personal transformation, in an environment of trust and acceptance.  Through friendship, partnership and transformation, we will have a positive and powerful impact on our families, our communities, the marketplace and the world.

As we discern God’s direction in leading this movement, we reaffirmed our mission as upwardly, inwardly and outwardly focused.  NCS continues to build on what have been our core defining principles over the past 15 years:  friendship and the NCS culture and is committed to the following five foundational truths:

   1. Authentic Friendship: With each other and with Jesus, characterized by transparency, acceptance and grace
   2. Unique Culture: A safe environment that is attractive to men, marked by excllence, humor, fun, irreverence, good teaching and humility
   3. Identity of the Marketplace Believer: Understanding our spiritual leadership and our unique calling and purpose
   4. Faithful Presence: Understanding how we individually and corporately engage the culture through the pursuit, identification and offer of life through sacrifical love
   5. Partnership: Tremendous leverage and spiritual growth is realized as we share ideas, work as we are called, live life together and mentor the next generation

We look forward to sharing more about these key principles and the Management Committee with you in the months and years ahead.  In addition, we have been focusing on a Go Forward Plan and will be communicating the practical impact of the plan as we continue to work in partnership together.

We are excited that you are part of this movement of men.  We invite you to participate – to partner with us – as a leader, as an active member of a chapter or an affiliate or as a friend of NCS.

Thank you for your friendship and your partnership,
