I’ve never been more excited than right now. The work of God in and through The Fields Church is amazing.
The past few years have been full of life change, spiritual growth, community outreach, missions involvement, dynamic family life ministry and being a church family who deeply cares for one another. This all leaves me unbelievably excited to introduce the plan to unleash the next era in the life of The Fields Church: Say Yes!
We want to Say Yes to the future of The Fields Church. For the next two years we are inviting God to do a transformational work of generosity in our hearts so that we can lay hold of the advancing opportunities before us. As we all take new steps of trusting God together, we’ll be astounded at the freedom and strength unleashed in our hearts and in the life of our church. Joy and I are excited to lead us through this journey. We’re saying yes, and we’re inviting you to Say Yes right along with us.
Why is this an “every one” moment? Because God wants every single one of us to be His accomplices. From the crossing of the Red Sea, to the collapse of Jericho’s walls, to Jesus’ last words in Acts 1:8, to this very moment…He invites us to step forward and join Him in the midst of the miraculous advancement of His mission.
Can you even believe what an honor it is to partner with the One who made the world and everything in it? I am eager beyond words to move into these exciting days with you. He is God and we are in His hands. May that reality encourage us to take our next steps and Say Yes to all He has for us.
Saying Yes with you,
Pastor Travis and Joy
The Fields Church is FAMILY to all of us. We need to make sure our home at The Fields Church is strong, healthy and capable of providing effective ministry.
Through focus groups, leadership discussions, and church facility consultants, we identified the following pinch points that will limit us in continued growth:
We are passionate about the surrounding communities. God has strategically positioned us to be His love, hope and help in our own communities.
We will actively serve our communities through ongoing partnerships in the schools, in the business sector, and by helping our neighbors know the love of God.
Our new preschool play and discovery environment will be open throughout the week for anyone in the community to utilize. Our facility will be a blessing to hundreds of parents who need a place to go with their kids during the day.
Also, our updated auditorium and lobby will be an excellent space for businesses, organizations and nonprofit agencies to use to improve leadership, train employees, and contribute to the well-being of our community.
When we invest in our communities, our goal is to share our
resources, share God’s love, and share our people to help make
our community a better place.
We will be generous with our resources to help those less fortunate than ourselves. We will partner with missions organizations that are helping people who live in extreme poverty conditions.
We will partner with missionaries who are actively investing in the next generation to build up a strong foundation of future Christian leaders all over the globe. Several areas of the world devalue children. We will support those who empower children to become great Christian leaders.
We will go to great lengths to forward the gospel into areas of the world that still do not know who Jesus is. Several geographical areas of the planet are less than two percent Christian. We will enable missionaries to go into these areas and share God’s story with those who have never heard it.
When you Say Yes, you will be helping kids all over the world learn the promise that God has
a New Heavens and New Earth for all his believers. What a great story to tell!
We invite you to join us! We simply want YOU to have sincerely pray, “God, what do you want from me?”
If we do this, God will change our hearts, enlarge our faith, and meet all of our
needs. As we join together to reach beyond ourselves, we will see something
happen that is bigger than ourselves. We can Say Yes to the future of The
