Giving

giving-matters-2014

Giving is a natural response to a generous God.  The Bible says that ‘each person should give what they have decided in their heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (1 Corinthians 9:7.) Your giving enables us to: support our Mission Partners around the world employ our staff […]

Pastor’s Piece

Did you know that at least 50 churches have been planted in NZ in the past ten years?  Why plant churches when there are plenty of churches already?  Well, there are new housing subdivisions with few if any local options for church-goers.  Often existing churches lack evangelistic fervour or relevance.  And there is something about a new work that attracts fresh leadership and outreach.

Last week we inserted the latest copy of Rongopai into your bulletin. Did you read it?  It tells about three very different church plants: (1) Hobsonville Point, (2) Pokeno and (3) Bunnythorpe (Manawatu).  So many good ideas!  Here’s just one I gleaned from each: (1): Take the church into the market place.  Don’t worry about starting all the traditional church programs straight away. (2): Use your retirement to plant a church in a new town / subdivision.  (3): Be patient.  It takes time – lots of meals, conversations and prayer.

God is building his church.  We have opportunities as a church to support church planting and rejuvenation here in Auckland.  How do we do it?  Begin with prayer and then focus on training and equipping the next generation(s).  Talk to me if this kind of thing excites you!

 

Amen
