Recently, Andrew was able to go to Miami for several days. God really blessed that time! It was very fruitful in building relationships and planning next steps and future ministry with True Vine Christian Church. While Andrew was there, he had the opportunity to speak at TVCC during their evening service.
If you’d like to hear what the Lord led him to talk about, as well as get to know a little bit more about the church we are joining in service with just click here and you will be taken to the video on TVCC facebook page. He begins talking around minute 13 🙂
Following are the ministry plans God has led us to:
Join with the Body of Christ at TVCC – Our foremost goal will be to join the faith family at TVCC and be a part of the growing and maturing of the Body of Christ there. We will seek to not be outsiders coming in to help run a program, but members of the church family who seek to edify and encourage others to prevail in their faith as they do so for us.
Children and Family Discipleship – We will be helping to lead the development of intentional child and family discipleship opportunities – including Sunday morning/evening classes and mid-week teaching.
KIDZXL – Our whole family will be able to be involved in this ministry outreach to the surrounding community. Through this we will seek to facilitate a stronger relationship between True Vine and the children/families that are a part of the KIDZXL family and invite them to begin taking part in the Sunday and mid-week opportunities for learning about God and His Word – and making disciples!
Immigrant Hope – This is an organization that seeks to provide hope for immigrants by giving them the True Hope of Jesus Christ first. Their mission is to ease the burden of the immigration process through the local church, while connecting people they serve to that local church. TVCC seeks to be one of the local churches who helps to ease this burden of the immigration process and connect people to the faith family there. Andrew plans to become trained by this organization to help in this ministry of True Vine.
EFCA Gateway Theological Institute – Andrew will be taking this training that will focus on theological and pastoral training. The training is designed to take place while the student is involved in ministry, making the learning both grounded and practical. Pastor Rollo asks all who are involved in leadership in his church/show gifting in this area to take part in this training and we are thankful and blessed that Andrew will be able to take part in it!
