We’re excited to pride some updates, news on some of the newer churches in Ecclesia…
All Souls Community
All Souls is very much in its infant stage. We are taking things slow, hoping to ask good questions and begin good friendships that will allow us to form an indigenous community that takes pleasure in God by enjoying authentic relationships and working toward Charlottesville’s true good. We have had a couple locals join us, and we are still waiting for several members of our initial community to move. This city has captured our heart. A week or two ago, my wife Miska said, “It feels like we were made for this place.” At several moments, it has seemed obvious that God has gone before us, giving us favor. Personally, we are in need of finding spiritual rhythms, and of course, we are prayerfully hoping toward connecting with that small number of new friends who want to share Jesus-life with us here. We see God at work, and we want to pay attention to what he has for us.
East End Ecclesia
We are currently in the process of raising financial support and preparing to move to Pittsburgh on Nov,22 2008. Upon arrival to Pittsburgh we will begin the process of building a core team through outreach, service, and evangelism. Along with growing the core team we will also begin weekly meetings to develop those on the team by sharing the vision, mission, values, and core doctrinal beliefs that will shape East End Ecclesia. We will also be working on establishing multiple mission opportunities that will be offered during the upcoming summer.
The Renew Community is a newly forming faith community for skeptics and dreamers in Lansdale, PA. We are currently meeting as a launch team to pray, plan and prepare for the future direction and mission of our community. Renew has recently launched their website and is in the process of launching their house churches.
