Or, if you’re a PayPal nut…
We are now just sixty days from relocating to northwest Arkansas to begin the work of planting Grace Hills Church. The feedback we’ve received thus far has been tremendously positive. We’ve been encouraged by friends and family, fellow church planters, and the staff at Saddleback.
I am confident in God’s calling. I know this is His will, and I’m already envisioning what our church family will look like a year and five years from now. Angie asked me tonight, “what’s your dream?” My response was something along the lines of:
I dream of digging in and planting a church through which people can discover and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ, where people can give themselves to an eternal cause, and where people can invest their lives into fighting problems of global proportions in Jesus’ name.
We’ve reached the part where we must begin to plan out the details of how we’re going to accomplish that vision, which is why I’m writing this to you right now. I’m asking for your help. But more than that, I’m inviting you into the opportunity to share in this journey with us – to invest in this God-given dream for the sake of eternity.
How can you help? I’m so glad you asked.
Pray For Us
One of my mentors, Grady Higgs, often says that “nothing heavenly happens on earth without prayer.” God has chosen to release certain blessings here only upon our asking for them. So please, ask! Intercede for our protection and provision.
Help Us Make Connections
If you know people whom we should know, please introduce us. That might include people who would be interested in being part of Grace Hills, or people in northwest Arkansas who have spiritual needs. If you’d like to introduce us to someone, please contact me.
Partner With Us
If you’re a believer, or a church or organization of mission-minded believers, please pray about the possibility of making a recurring investment in the planting phase of Grace Hills. When you do, you can know that you’re giving to a new church that:
- stands on firm doctrinal ground and will not compromise God’s truth,
- has a huge vision for reaching lost people,
- stands ready to handle the “messy” aspects of ministry to real people with real problems,
- wants to tackle globe-sized problems,
- will be paying your investment forward in the form of planting other churches and multiplying,
- will handle finances with strong ethics, openness, and high accounability.
If you would consider partnering with us, I would love to speak with you. Beginning in June, I’ll be available to travel to speak to different groups or meet with various leaders. We want to share the adventure of planting Grace Hills with people who invest together. Recurring investments will be crucial to getting Grace Hills to a place of self-sustaining maturity.
Give a One-time Gift
I don’t know very many people who enjoy asking for money, but I’ll never forget the other statement I’ve heard Grady make before… “I’ve never apologized for asking God’s people to give to God’s causes.” So while my own meekness might prevent me from asking for help, my sense of calling to this task and my compelling vision for what we want to accomplish strengthens my voice.
If you can give, if you’ve thought and prayed it through, and God has led you to do so, please make a one-time gift to help us in the relocation and initial setup of Grace Hills. You can make a secure donation by check or credit/debit card using WePay and you’ll be notified of how we’re using your gift.
We thank you again, sincerely, for your prayers and support. We can’t wait to get started and want to represent Jesus well. If you’re interested in partnering with us, giving a gift, or have a question or comment, please get in touch!
