In our short term, we have had the opportunity to be involved in planting other churches. Replication is a core value at C3 and so any opportunity we have to have a hand in introducing new Jesus movements to new areas, we want to join in how ever we can.
Today pray for
Access Church in Dublin (suburb of Columbus) with lead planters Mark and Christi Cox. We helped them bridge the gap to 2015 with a Christmas gift. They are looking toward a September launch this year. Pray for the Cox family as they continue to try and grow a critical mass to launch with. Ask for favor in their neighborhood and for people to come to faith because of their work.
New Dawn Church in Tosagua, Ecuador. Pray for the 200+ kids who have been sponsored through Compassion International because of this church existing. Pray for the 25+ of those kids who have been sponsored by C3. Ask God to bring salvation and basic provision to these kids and their families and pray for God to raise up men in this village as there is a significant absence of male role models in this area of Tosagua.
Akapun Church in Zihuateutla, Mexico. Pray for the 173 kids who have been sponsored through Compassion International because of this church existing. Pray for the 10 kids sponsored by C3. Pray for the staff/tutors who do the ministry at this site. The travel to the families' homes is very rough terrain. Pray for the completion of their church building/ministry center. There is a portion of the roof still needing to be complete and windows to be installed. Pray for God to bring salvation and basic provision to these kids and their families.
C3 Austin in Austin, Texas. This plant is very much in the dream phase as we announced this past Sunday, but God has our attention and we will proceed as He leads. Pray for the Burky family. Pray for their transition to Columbus. Pray for God's favor with finding the right housing/neighborhood. Pray protection over their family and quick retention of C3's DNA and huge impact in Columbus. And pray for the networks and partnerships to begin to form supernaturally to make a church plant in Austin happen. Ask God for supernatural favor at the University of Texas and clarity for where in Austin God is stirring this church plant.
??? Pray for Carl Wiencek who is interning with C3 this summer. Ask God to give him clarity on if church planting is his calling and if so, ask God to reveal When, Where, What and How that plant is supposed to happen.
