Posts Tagged ‘East Valley Bible church’

In late 2010, Praxis Church and East Valley Bible church made the stunning announcement that they are going to merge their churches into Redemption Church under the Acts 29 network – a church planting network . I have attended the evening service at Praxis church for the past few years and have also taken courses at East Valley Bible church. So this merger is important to me because I have connections with both churches. We got to attend the inaugural launch of the church in which they gathered the whole church community on the lawn of what was once East Valley Bible church. Pastor Justin gave an amazing message from Jeremiah 29 about going out into the community.

From Redemption church’s website:

Redemption Church is born out of the conviction that the church unified can impact the world dramatically for the gospel. The vision of Redemption Church is to saturate the State of Arizona with Gospel-centered, Reformed, Missional churches through campuses and church plants. We see thousands of people worshiping Jesus and living out the Gospel all over Arizona, equipped every Sunday with the same message and living out the same values everyday.

Next year I am allowed to come back as one the teacher’s aide if I want. I plan on taking the knowledge I learned and present it to my own mission board. My hope is to be a part of my own church becoming more missional. God is using me in incredible ways with missions and I can’t be anymore excited.
