Unified Vision for Reaching the Lost
Throughout South America, the pain of poverty and broken relationships is impossible to ignore. Sincere needs and hurting people cannot be ignored because they are everywhere. Faced with this reality, precious saints and churches throughout South America began sincerely crying out to God for revival. They wept for their communities and the lost within their cities. They longed for those bound in the destruction and pain of the Enemy to experience the abundant life that only comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ. These precious saints knew that the only hope for their communities and cities was that their neighbors and others experience the victorious life that comes from being filled and walking in the Spirit. And so they cried out to God … and today I am able to report from the frontlines on South America
that REVIVAL IS BLOWING THROUGH THE LAND! God saw their tears – He heard their cries and He is now answering their petitions. Not only are the churches growing and adding members daily, but also God has faithfully answered their cries of “Revive us, Lord!” by unifying them in vision and mission.
The vision and mission that God has planted within their hearts is for EACH CHURCH TO PLANT ONE NEW CHURCH BY 2020! This is HUGE considering that we have over 2000 churches within the Church of God in South America. If things were “normal,” such a vision would be overwhelming. But thanks be to God that He has also given us a plan and strategy to accomplish this grand task. First, God has connected us with other organizations that are providing us with resources, training materials and building materials. Second, each church has agreed to undergo a “health check-up.” We are “taking the pulse” of each local church in an effort to build upon their strengths and help them address their weaknesses. Our belief is that healthy churches will reproduce healthy churches.
These diagnostics are yielding tremendous results. Pastors and leaders have identified potential church planters within their congregations. These men and women have begun intensive church planting programs and are responding to God’s call. The local churches are also responding by ministering in their communities and effectively opening the doors for these new church planters.
Please join us in prayer and support as God continues to bring revival to South America. Pray with us that He send the laborers to reap this field that is white with harvest. Become a sponsor of this “health check-up” initiative or a church planter’s training conference. Be part of a construction or ministry team that comes to help us build and equip these 2000 churches.
