We knew God was calling us to something, but we were not sure what that was. Through a prayer retreat, lots of prayer walks, and a long drive through Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, God made our calling very clear. At the same time, Friends Community Church had been going through leadership restructuring with the focus of God’s call to expand it’s influence. Little did we know we were going to be spearheading this expansion. At the conclusion of the summer, I spent a couple of days in Haviland, Kansas at a Friends Multiplication Conference.
During the last night of the conference, God grabbed my heart and confirmed that church planting is the direction we should be going. After much prayer and consultation with leadership and close friends, we knew in our hearts that God was calling us to start a new ministry in Fullerton. It is exciting, thrilling, and terrifying to leave a ministry and a church that we have served and loved for 14 years. The Lord is faithful and will always be. We envision peoples lives being transformed by the power of Jesus, families flourishing, and our cities healthier. All this because we believe Jesus is enough! We have accepted the call and we want to invite you to join us in this wonderful mission.
