Recently LifeChurch.tv has asked that all of us who attend forget being members but rather become partners of the church. So rather than showing up to our posh club and watching some good worship and taking in some words from Craig whilst sipping our lattes, we should choose to be partners. As partners, we can choose to take on the mission of the church ourselves, think of new innovative ways to bring in new people, and we take an active role in moving the church forward.
Last week we were honored with the opportunity to partner with LifeChurch.tv to bring the message of Christ and the tools of LC to London and the UK. We are already pursuing a Network church locally with our first public service this Sunday. In addition we are assisting with the Internet Campus each Sunday morning for the GMT focused experience. And now we get to add to the partnership by reaching out to those in the UK who have previously downloaded material from OPEN and try to deepen those relationships with the church.
With this partnership comes a clear path to obtaining a visa for our family to stay around longer. It also will provide us six weeks of training back in Oklahoma City to make the most we can of our partnership.
We also are now certain that our means of financial support while here in London will be through fund raising. We are working on establishing tools to make that happen and plan to be ready for that within a few weeks. If you have interest in getting more detailed information about our plans or giving toward the work we are doing then please do let us know.
God has done amazing work in our short time here. We are thankful that LifeChurch.tv has chosen a generous approach to building other churches internationally and that this makes our adventure possible.
