On Sunday, June 7th Crosspoint Community Church celebrated it’s 1 year anniversary of moving into a new facility and changing its name (it was New Vision Fellowship for 10 years). The year has flown by and I am incredibly grateful to have pastored such a wonderful group of people for the past 3 years.
Over the past year we have seen 25 people join our church, baptized 13, and paid down the note on our building $300,000! We have given over 10% of what is given to our church to local, national and international ministries. We also have 6 children that have made professions of faith in Jesus Christ and we are working with them and their parents as we prepare to baptize them in the coming months. God is at work in and through our church family!
We should celebrate all that God has done over the past year but I am convinced that he wants to do more! Statistics tell us that 80% of our community is unchurched and they lack a relationship with Jesus Christ. The mission field around us is huge and I believe the Lord wants to use our church to pierce the darkness and carry the gospel to our community.
Will you join me in praying for our church and our community? Will you ask God to open doors of opportunity for us to reach into the darkness around us? I am reminded of Jesus’ words to his disciples in Matthew 9:38, “Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send our laborers into his harvest.” Let’s pray. Let’s go. Let’s see what God will do!
