Yesterday we had our last CityReach Coordinators’ meeting until CityReach launches in about a month (Aug. 12-15). I am so pumped to see what God is going to do this year! We have some great coordinators who are doing an amazing job in laying the groundwork for CityReach at each of our 5 sites. It’s a ton of work to pull off, but they are well on their way to doing it.
You may ask, why do we even do CityReach? Why not put more effort in helping the church week-to-week? Well, I’m glad you asked. First, we do provide a lot of support on a week-to-week basis, but here’s a much better answer to that question:
- There are going to be children attending the kid’s crusades at each of our sites who will come beaten physically, emotionally and spiritually.
- There will be husbands and wives attending our adult services who haven’t spoken to each other in a loving tone in years.
- There will be families that barely have enough money to survive week to week let alone by their kid’s school supplies attending the Friday night block party.
This is the reason we do CityReach. It’s not about just another outreach or program. As ministry should always be, it’s about people. Please be in prayer for these 5 warriors you see above (pic includes Deana from NOH and myself) as they coordinate this incredible community impacting opportunity in August!
