On Mission in Kirkland, WA

27 03 2008

I wanted to do something unusual and talk about what’s actually going on in my life in the present.

On March 1st my wife and I, with our 4 kids, boarded a plane bound for Seattle to spend the next 2.5 months developing a new work in Kirkland, WA.

We’re members of an Apostolic Team sent out by our church in Fort Thomas, KY.

Our mission is simple – to develop and establish a Discipleship Training Center in Kirkland that will reproduce disciples who will birth new body churches that will send out Apostolic Teams to launch new works in other regions.

Our team from KY is currently April and I and Ford and Erin Knowlton and our Kirkland based team is Ben and Kami Crawford and Colin and Grace Jones. We expect additional members of our team from KY will pay an extended visit to building up this work in the near future.

So right now our weekly schedule consists of –

  • Team Trainings on Tuesday Afternoon
  • Team Outings on Tuesday Night
  • Story Formed Life on Wednesday Night
  • Body Gathering and Lord’s Supper on Saturday Evening
  • Assorted weekly mentoring meetings

I’m also meeting with other church leaders and planters in this area.

We’ve met significant challenges especially in the way of nasty contagious illnesses but we’re pushing through and we’re seeing disciples made as well as the budding of a new body.

Please pray for our team and that the Lord will establish this work for the expansion of His Kingdom.

And by the way…if anyone out there would be interested in launching a Discipleship Training Center please contact us. We’d love to help you get it started and send a team to assist in establishing the work.
