Last Sunday (March 2nd) we informed our church that we are stepping out in faith to plant a church in Boone County. We love Meadowland Church, which is why this decision has been so difficult for us. However, when you hear the call of God, you have to respond.
We are stepping our in faith, like missionaries to plant a church in Belvidere, Il. Meadowland Church has agreed to release us from ministry, and send us out as Church Planters. We are in the process of filling out official paperwork with Converge MidAmerica, and very soon will begin fundraising to support this new work that God has called us to. We believe God is calling us to plant a multigenerational, multiethnic, reproducing church in Belvidere that would strive to plant churches all across Boone County.
There have been a lot of emails, phone calls, and texts over the last few days, so I thought I would post the letter I wrote to my Meadowland Church family here on the blog.
You can also listen to the message from last Sunday called “Leaping into the arms of our fathers” by following his LINK which contains more details.
We would ask you to pray for our family and Meadowland Church during this new season of life and ministry.
