Yesterday, we officially sent out Trinity Church! They have been gathering for the past several months and they have built an amazing core group of dedicated partners. They have grown to the point where they are ready to begin meeting every Sunday preparing for their launch this October. I am so excited for Trinity and their lead pastor and my friend Mark Chripczuk.
We saw in Galatians 6:6-10 that what we sow we will reap. As a church, there is no greater opportunity than to plant the gospel of Jesus through planting a church. We have fully invested in Trinity financially, spiritually, and physically. I have personally spent a lot of time with Mark praying with him and preparing him for the challenges of planting a new church. I have seen him grow so much and I see clearly the anointing of God on his life and leadership.
One thing we can do right now for this budding church is to pray for them! They have several obstacles to overcome as they get closer to their launch. They need a facility, start-up equipment, help with missions' teams, and faith! The list is long and it can be overwhelming especially for Mark. It is our honor to go to pray for Mark and the entire Trinity team. Pray that God will show Himself to them everyday and that their passion for Him flourishes! Pray that they will find a facility. Pray that their faith will be strong and there is unity in their team.
Colossians 1:9-12 is a fantastic prayer that Paul prayed for the Colossian church. This is a perfect prayer to pray for Trinity. Pray with me! I can't wait to see what God does in and through this new church! Stay informed with what is happening through their website www.tcphilly.org
