Five years ago, we held our first public worship service in a movie theater in Northwest Arkansas. Today, hundreds gather weekly in our currently leased facility.
Many people who needed Jesus have come to know him! Others have gone public with their faith through baptism. Many have completed our membership class (Growth Track Step One) and have signed our covenant, going “all in” as members of Grace Hills.
A bunch of awesome people serve in the ministry of Grace Hills, making coffee, greeting, singing, teaching kids, leading small groups, and more. We’ve partnered with the Northwest Arkansas community, a local school, and various nonprofits.
We’ve blessed some single parents and helped some struggling families and counseled people in their brokenness. And we’ve sent missionaries and planted churches and shared the gospel. We’ve multiplied.
And, best of all… We’re just getting started!
I feel as if the first five years have been the introduction with many chapters to follow and I can’t wait to see what God does as we turn each new page.
This coming Sunday, I’m kicking off a six-week teaching series called How to Have a Breakthrough. Just as Nehemiah returned to Jerusalem with a big vision to rebuild his broken city, so I’m asking God to give us a big, bold vision as well!
Starting Sunday, I’m going to spend 21 days fasting and praying for spiritual breakthrough in our church, our community, and in our nation. I’m asking God to break some chains for the addicted, to break some barriers within marriages for restored intimacy, to break the bondage of debt for some people financially, and to break any power Satan may have within the lives of the people of our city.
Will you join me? If so, there are three specific things you can do.
- Invite someone using this Facebook Event link and/or this Facebook video.
- Consider being part of a baptism team that will help people know what to do and get ready on their big day. Email me if you’re interested.
- Pray and fast with me! I’m not eating food (I will drink juice) for 21 days, but you can fast for a shorter period of time, or fast from different things.
Basically, join me in calling on our Almighty God to draw the least, the last, and the lost to himself through this awesome, amazing church family called Grace Hills!!!
