James Robert here. It’s been a privilege and honor to get know all of you a bit more at the start of this year! I hope and desire to continue getting to know you all as friends/servants in Christ Jesus! Without relationships our efforts reach only so far! John 13:35
For this, I have been asked to help coordinate a collaboration of an evangelistic team formed from different churches in Lapeer County to evangelize Lapeer.
I do not assume that there is no effort being taken. But, to bring more of us together; to intercede and to go together into the field as ONE.
If there are others to whom you know of and would be interested in one of two things; please pass this on and invite them.
1. Individuals, whose part is to come together and intercede on behalf of those who actually go into our community and share our blessed hope.
Although, we all will intercede, these individuals (intercessors) would stay behind and touch heaven, provide spiritual covering, perform spiritual warfare. (More information and coordination will be provided)
2. For those who actually walk the streets, go into coffee shops, parks, and other strategic areas in which we are inspired to reach. (training and coordination will be provided)
There are so many ways and places throughout the year we can reach into our community with an attitude of love and service.
I’m confident that ALL of you would agree that the Holy Spirit is at the cusp of pouring into our community. In fact I would dare to say He is doing so already. So, are we ready? I believe so!
There are many in this community (not a guess, I know most of you) who are a strong foundation of mentoring, teaching (discipling) those who God brings into the Kingdom.
I want you ALL to know, that I am fully aware that for many years God has been using you and others in this community to prepare the way for US, all of US.
So, this whole Solemn Assembly is not an anyone persons idea but only a fulfillment of those who have come before us. We need to honor that spirit and the individuals who have sacrificed much and have interceded much to make this happen.
With that shared, I have spoken to Wade Jenkins about using the Gathering Place as a HQ for US to meet, pray and go out.
The trick is to decide when WE are ALL available to get together. when is the best time?
One suggestion is to meet once a month to go out on a mid-morning Sunday say 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. Why Sunday? Because who else is evangelizing on a Sunday? Most people will not enter our edifices. In fact they know where WE are. What a great thought that WE would leave OUR comfortable norm to reach those who are not coming.
Or, because many of us are probably on staff or ministering in morning services we meet every other month on a Sunday and then come together on a Thursday night or Saturday night on the alternative month?
It would be easy for me to just set a time and then do it. But, this is a team effort! And if needed I will make the decision and when you can come, come.
With that, would you pray and let me know in the next few days of reading this what God would have you do?
