We are here.

We are here in beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota helping Antioch Community Church minister through outreach and other projects. Antioch is a wonderful church plant that is a lot like Fellowship (our church).

Here are some facts about the Twin Cities:
-there are more than 3 million people in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas
-over 300,000 gay/lesbian and transgender people
-extremely large wiccan influence
-the largest Somali population in the world other than in Somalia
-less than 5% evangelical

The point is...these people are in need of Christ. We are here as THE CHURCH (the body of Christ) to help Antioch Community Church spread the gospel. It's not easy, but the people of Antioch have begun to build relationships with people in the surrounding areas in order to share the love of Christ.

Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever. -John Piper on the supremacy of God in missions.

By the way, I am tired and I miss my girl. But, this experience is worth it. I know that God is using our time here to show us that people, right here in the states, are completely lost and in desperate need of Him. Please continue to pray for us and the people of Minneapolis.
