Some Numbers For You

In the summer of 2002 the church had recently moved into an old supermarket... bringing approximately 125 people with them. When I got here in the Fall of that year there were 150 in regular attendance.

In the Fall of 2004 we moved again into our current facility on the busiest street in the state... a beautiful location. We brought over around 175 people and last Sunday had 295. We had already seen an increase since the first of this year of almost 20%.

Since December we have seen at least 25 new decisions... probably more like 35-40... representing nearly 10% of our attenders.

There was a prophetic word given over this church in December of 2004. Bill Johnson said, "God said that 25-30 years ago a fresh wind of the spirit moved into this community through this church. But, because of the injustice of unacceptance of the community, the people that would not accept the word that God was giving through this church. Now, His justice is restoring that word, and the original call is being restored. "

Bruce came here to plant almost 30 years ago with a dedicated group of people who toiled in obscurity for years. Now God is bringing the harvest that has been sown into for almost three decades.
