“Evangelism and social action are inseparable, as two arms of the church's mission. Social activity is a response to evangelism, a bridge and a partner to it.”
Pastor and author Tim Chester
We are currently in a fundraising campaign to further our active reach into Jackson County. We call it The Family Business.
Almost 2,000 years ago, Jesus told his followers to go find lost people so they could be found in him. Today is no different.
The message of salvation and freedom Jesus shared with those first disciples is meant for all people. That includes the 111,000 people in Jackson County with no religious affiliation. While JaxNaz is ready to receive the lost, the truth of the matter is most lost people won’t come to us. That means we have to go to them.
Church plants typically grow 12 times faster than established churches. Plus, 60-80% of people who attend planted churches are new believers. That means church plants just reach more lost people than established churches do.
Found Church officially launches September 8, 2019, but our active reach starts today. So, let’s go!
Poverty levels are up, adults with special needs have limited opportunities for community, and people are simply going hungry.
We are here to share God’s love with people in need – whether those needs are tangible, emotional, or spiritual.
People matter to us because they matter to God. That’s why we treat every food pantry guest with dignity; David’s Promise helps adults with special needs serve, worship, and have community; and we partner with other local churches to reach people we simply can’t get to.
We want to build a 4,000 square foot facility to strengthen our existing partnerships and forge new ones as we follow Jesus into the next phase of our ministry. This facility, called The Storehouse, includes a walk-in freezer, loads of shelf storage, and space for volunteers to sort clothes, fill backpacks with food, prep resources for church partners, and more.
We can’t wait to see God’s active reach through this tremendous ministry tool!
