A friend of mine is starting a new church in Birmingham, Alabama. Chris Goins will launch a2 church this Sunday, August 17! It is great when we get to see an exciting beginning to a new life-giving church.
In order for a new church to succeed, lots of planning, vision development and fund raising needs to happen. The amount of work that goes into a church plant is unbelievable. Leaders need to commit themselves, advertising has to happen and a solid ministry strategy has to be fully developed. More important than all of that is the prayer that needs to take place. Chris, his family and friends have been praying for quite a while about this great ministry opportunity. I am hoping that everyone who reads this will join me in praying for them.
Pray for new unchurched families to become a part of a2 church.
Ask God to provide a solid foundation for this new church community.
Pray for many people to be reached and discipled for Christ.
Pray for the resources that are necessary.
Pray for continued vision and passion for Chris and his leadership team.
Pray that God will be honored and the name of Christ will be elevated through this new church.
Ask God to change Birmingham and the world as a result of the work of His people.
Chris, way to go! We can’t wait to see what God does through the new work of a2.
