The Month of June
When Ray and I first got married we were so excited to get involved in ministry together as husband and wife! We had made a 6 month commitment to serve in whatever way we could as part of the launch team for our RHOW Bronx church. On January 3rd, RHOW Bronx had their first weekly service and since then we have consistently seen souls being saved. Over a dozen people are currently in our Membership Class which ends with membership and baptism (picture below). Bronx residents are getting involved in ministry. God is on the move in the Bronx. Getting to watch a church grow from conception has been such a joy and this past 6 months have really solidified God's calling on Ray and I's lives. We want to continue to be a part of Church Planting and reaching addicts for Christ. With that being said, we've signed up for another 6 month commitment in the Bronx!
City to City Apprenticeship Program
I am SUPER excited to announce that Ray and I have been accepted into an apprenticeship program for young leaders with a heart for church planting! This program offers a great opportunity to grow as leaders as well as network with other Pastors and young leaders with a heart to reach this city for Christ!
"Through the Apprentice Program, we come alongside pastors to help them develop young men and women within their congregations who show leadership potential... Some of the topics addressed include gospel theology & renewal, identifying calling, and cultural engagement. Other program elements include church site visits, a ministry assignment within the home church, and pastoral coaching sessions." -- Redeemer City to City
Men's Home Update
June was a great month for the Men's home! We saw many men involved in ministry. With the nicer weather coming we also have had many opportunities to fellowship (see pictures below). We had a night out at Brooklyn Bridge Park, saw fireworks in Coney Island and went to MVMNT's Night of Worship. Opportunities like this are such a huge part of what makes this program successful. Being a part of the men's home here, you are not just a name on a list, you become part of our family. Through fellowship, we are able to do life together and build friendships and a network that will last far beyond their time living in the home.
Please pray for...
- Ray and I will be going to California July 13th-August 4th. While there we will be attending the G.A.N.G Conference, helping RHOW SoCal, and scoping out a ministry opportunity. Please pray that this time is fruitful and also recharging.
- RHOW Bronx's 4th of July picnic. Pray that this fellowship opportunity is a success and that RHOW Bronx sees grown in numbers, depth and most importantly souls saved.
