I am sitting here this morning praying for our Toledo Campus. Praying for spiritual fruit, growth,and increase. I am proud of Compelled Church to step out in faith and to launch something new. I am blessed that we are a church that is missional and not bound to the walls of our building. It is encouraging to know that people want to do the will of God and take the Gospel to the lost, and to work hard to see that we really “Go into all the world..” and not just talk about it. I am amazed that we continue to live out our name, “Compelled” for we know the love of Christ Compels us (2 Cor. 5.14). It is not just a slogan, but our life. What a blessing to BE the church and not just go to church.
With everything that is birthed, it must be helped, and sustained. We have a “baby” church we have started. It is a little like a real baby. It is alive, beautiful, and gives Father great pleasure. But it cannot walk yet, it must be helped, loved, encouraged, affirmed, and nurtured. As a good parent to a baby to help it grow, we must be a good parent to our new campus. So keep giving financially, to help. Please keep praying for our leadership and for Pastor Tim and Amanda. Pray about committing to go there for a few months to get our campus church “walking” on it’s own. I hope all of us will try to get there a visit. That would be great. My thoughts and heart for our Toledo Campus this morning. Keep praying for Pastor Tim and Amanda Rabara, our site pastors! Thanks, Pastor Nate
