We are once again asking God to help us write a new chapter of strength and courage.
It has been eight years since we launched Built for God. It was a bold step into new expression of faith. The community of Believers at World Outreach joined together in sacrificial faith. The result was a set of remarkable ministry tools: nursery and early childhood areas to serve families, Three Crosses sanctuary-a place to expand the Jesus message God has given us, The Next Chapter providing resources for growing disciples, a beautiful campus to serve as a launch point for World Outreach.
God responded to the congregation’s courage and sacrifice in truly supernatural ways. We have dramatically increased the number of families and children we serve each week. The technology and the team which has emerged take the message of WOC throughout our nation and the world. We have meaningful ministry initiatives in Russia, Ukraine, Scandanavia, Africa, the Middle East, Central America and beyond. Our campus has become an incubator for ministry in Middle Tennessee, hosting regional concerts, learning opportunities, support facilities and training experiences for our congregation and thousands of other people. None of these initiatives or the people affected were achievable without the sacrifices that individuals and families made when the Built For God Campaign was presented. The courage of the WOC family made a new future possible for thousands.
We are building again — a better future, a stronger church and an investment in eternity.
We do not have to expand our facility again. We do need to address the costs remaining from the campus expansion. We are once again asking God to help us write a new chapter of strength and courage. I believe the greatest extension of ministry we have ever know is ahead of us.
At WOC capital initiatives have always preceded seasons when God pours out His blessings. In faith we are embarking on another season of expansion. Invest in Forever will enable us to provide ministry to more people, create new options for discipleship, extend the influence of WOC in strengthening other churches, serve with greater excellence, launch a new season of harvest and it is financially prudent.
The opportunities for our congregation have never been greater or the needs around us more compelling.
A new season of kingdom outcomes will be ignited and Jesus’ name will be lifted up.
The communication and effort involved in this season will offer unique opportunities to focus on our purpose as a congregation. A new season of kingdom outcomes will be ignited, Jesus’ name will be lifted up. As we consider next steps, thousands of us wil make a sacrifice toward a new future together. The results of this effort are not a mystery to us, we have experienced this before. God responds with dramatic expressions of His grace, lives are changed and we experience the joy of active participation with God’s purposes.
God has used our congregation to launch His plans since our beginning. Twenty-nine people began together with the label World Outreach Church. A ridiculous statement of faith and courage which God has given life to. In recent months we have launched thousands of “God-spots” enabling people to actively live out faith in their personal spheres of influence. The initiative of WOC has changed in scope and expression but never in intent or purpose. We intend to lift up the name of Jesus in Murfreesboro, Middle Tennessee and throughout the earth. Serving together to empower people with the redemptive power and hope of the cross.
The opportunities for our congregation have never been greater or the needs around us more compelling. Once again God has entrusted us with an invitation. I believe with a sacrificial response of generosity we will experience together the greatest expansion of ministry we have ever known. God has brought us to this season that we might experience His provision as never before.
God has brought us to this season that we might experience His provision as never before.
God, Give us added resources to use every day in your plan for WOC.
The campaign target is $9 million with trust for all the Lord may do.
