- Our Vision
It is difficult to overstate the impact of D James Kennedy leadership on souls of men, the church, and practical theological education. His leadership style epitomizes faith applied by taking up the challenge of Romans 10:10 – and by personalizing and mobilizing the concept of the free offer of the gospel to all men. To that end, he created and applied culturally relevant methodologies to connect intellectual reason with faith and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. As he practiced those principals in his own life and ministry, he exemplified the consummate Ephesians 4:12-16 “pastoral equipper” of the saints for service.
As a leader, Dr. Kennedy characteristically sustained focus on the authority of the Scripture and practice of sharing the Gospel at an individual level. Combined with practical tools and training, his own church grew and spiritual leadership multiplied around the globe – within and across denominational and cultural differences.
The legacy of D J Kennedy and spirit of the DJKIRL is to be the incubator for the producing the next generation of like-minded men: in short, Shepherds Shepherding the shepherds.
Outreach North America of the ARPC is honored to be the host of the next generation of Dr. Kennedy’s impact and legacy.
