God is leading our Conference to become a multiplying movement of disciples, leaders, groups and churches. As our Superintendent cast vision for the establishment of at least 10 new congregations in the next 36 months, he also challenged our Conference delegates to a three-step faith response of significant prayer, significant giving and significant obedience. As a result, 80 people indicated a desire to join the prayer team which was formed for this initiative. They will begin receiving a special email prayer communication beginning in early August. If you would like to be added to this list and join in the groundswell of prayer commitment, simply fill out your information below.
Nearly 60 people either made financial commitments or indicated that they wanted more time to pray about their commitment. To date, $36,000 has been committed over the next three years. If you would like to contribute to this multiplication initiative, you can contact our Conference Business Administrator, Mark Dowley at MarkDowley@smcfmc.org and share with him your commitment to this Kingdom venture.
29 churches indicated that they would mobilize financial resources toward the accomplishment of this vision. This is a significant improvement over the financial commitment of our churches to “Church Planting” in recent years and we are encouraged by this faith-filled response on the part of so many of our churches.
15 leaders felt personally called by God to this vision of church multiplication. Follow-up conversations with some of these leaders are already underway.
