It Takes a Team

Wow, another month has flown by and speaking of flying it seems like life is a blur.

As the Conference Director for The Justice Conference Charlotte 2014 my teams and I are well into the planning and development of this conference.  Our goals are simple; to attract believers into discussion around justice issues effecting people both local and global bringing education on these issues, and connecting people to opportunities. 

With about 30 pre-conference sessions ranging from human trafficking, to extreme poverty, racial and religious conflict, to homelessness and many other topics we seek to set in motion thousands of people of all ages. Check out our web site and like us on our Facebook page. If you are in the southeast region of the US, plan on being there. Make sure you let me know so I can connect with you. Please pray as this is a huge undertaking.

In addition I am also working to coordinate a research project with Columbia International University designed to discover a new type of unreached people group identification and location. Using social media our hope is to learn where 142 unreached people groups are located in Western Europe. Follow up will entail mobilizing team to relocate and engage these groups bringing the gospel in relevant ways to them. Our belief is that God has moved these peoples from their native countries to places where it is legal to reach out, build relationships and introduce the gospel. Pray for this process.

A friend of mine is leading a team in Egypt right now. They are connecting with many churches that have been attacked and burned by extremists. Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Egypt and across the world who are threatened on a regular basis because of their faith.

Thank God for a special gift to our Cuban work to find the mobile training center for another year. This training center provides leadership coaching, churches planting training and evangelism preparation. Please pray for funding as we are trying to build a seed fund to start a trucking company that will permanently fund this training center as well as a fund that will be able to send Cuban missionaries into other parts of the world. I would love to talk to you if you are interested in hosting a fundraiser or willing to contribute to this fund.

This is your investment. This is your joy.
