We are so thankful for you.
Here's what's happening.
- Our LAUNCH TEAM officially began meeting this Sunday with 10 committed members and 8 others that are close to joining. Please pray for those who are still deciding.
Including kids, that would put our young church at about 27 people going into the summer.
We've officially partnered with Greater Gresham Baptist Church. They are going to send people to each preview service to make sure the room is filled with people on July 3, 10, 17, 24. In addition, I will be preaching at Greater Gresham on June 18 & 19.
We've finalized our contract with Regal Cinemas for the summer, and we've also got an agreement to launch weekly services this January.
The numbers are in - We are going to meet our goal of having 100 people doing evangelism this summer. In fact, right now we are exceeding 120. These teams are coming from BPBC, The Oklahoma Baptist State Convention, Arrowhead Church in Tennessee, and Liberty University. Please pray this will result in our goal of 3,000 Gospel Conversations + Invitations.
I will travel to the SBC with Pastor Jeff this coming week and I've been invited to preach for the SBC Students on Mission.
We've updated our core values, mission statement, and discipleship strategy. I'm sooooo excited about the church God is calling us to be. If you get a chance, check them out here.
I don't believe this would be happening without your prayers and your support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
