It is so crazy to see what God is doing at The Point Church. Crazy. It was a little over 4 years ago that Mary and I set out to launch this new church on Long Island. A place that had not seen a successful church plant in over 20 years. Today we lead a growing, giving and going church that is committed to launching faith communities across this great, but spiritual needy place.
On Wednesday we had guests from the Assemblies of God and Church Multiplication Network. They announced at our prayer gathering that they would be investing $30,000.00 into our Babylon Campus through a replenishing grant. Wow!!! We will be the 200th church to receive that investment. That means the Assemblies of God has invested 6 million dollars into church plants across the nation over the last 4 1/2 years. It is amazing to be part of that.
Alton Garrison, Assistant Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, came to our pre-launch praying gathering and announced it to our church! I am so honored to have great friends in our fellowship who believe in what we are doing on Long Island! We also had Dr. Duane Durst and David Nuzzolo from the NY District of the Assemblies of God join the celebration. And my good friend John Jay Wilson who represented the Church Multiplication Network. So honored and humbled.
Now the work continues! On Sunday, April 8 we will be launching The Point Church Babylon Campus … 2 services. Praying for 200 people and many decisions for Jesus.
