After many months of prayer and preparation, we had the joy of hosting more than 600 for a fund-raiser event November 4. It was an evening to celebrate all that God has done through our gracious donors and to cast the vision for all that's ahead.
Titled None to One, our event presented the dual crises we face today, that of communicating the Gospel and of building life-changing community. It is our mission to equip Christians to share the Gospel and their very lives with those who do not know God's One story and identify as a None—someone with no religious affiliation whatsoever. Through loving presence and active witness for Jesus, we hope that many will go from the None category to knowing the One true God.
Only one story can change the spiritual landscape in our neighborhood, community, nation, and world.
Our featured speaker for the evening was Pastor Tim Dilena from The Brooklyn Tabernacle. His message powerfully highlighted the hope of the Gospel to change lives. We are grateful for his kind words and partnership in ministry.
We were overwhelmed by the flood of support from our friends—our partners in the Gospel—which resulted in gifts totaling more than $175,000. As we move into our initiatives for 2015, the Gospel will be proclaimed in today's cultural context through current technologies and free, accessible tools translated into the world's major languages.
These are exciting times for us! We invite you to partner with us on this exciting journey as we reach the world with God's One Story.
