4 Steps to Interacting with a Person of Need 

4 Steps to Interacting with a Person of Need  | CityReaching | Scoop.it

The following post is by Ethan Welch, a pastoral team member at The Bridge Church in Wilmington, North Carolina. What makes this post especially noteworthy for cityreachers is the fact that The Bridge Church has a citywide collaborative vision for living out the great commandment and the great commission.

    "As a church, we are currently walking through a series called “For the City”. We’re addressing five aspects of what it means for our church to really be on mission here in Wilmington. This past Sunday, I covered aspect #4, “Persons of Need.” You can access the sermon here. This may be a new term for you, but we prefer this term over other terms like “homeless” and “poor”. We use the phrase “person of need”; because, we want to recognize that though someone is in need, that isn’t their primary identity. Their primary identity is that they are a person, a human, an individual made in the image of God." >> CLICK on the title to read the entire post.

AKRON: 4th Annual Summit Ablaze

AKRON: 4th Annual Summit Ablaze | CityReaching | Scoop.it

Summit Ablaze will continue to criss-cross Summit County in 2017, with congregations from six different zip code clusters agreeing to host the torch for one month of intercessory prayer for our community. The goal is for each area to have two opportunities throughout the year to host. We are purposefully moving from urban to suburban churches for the hand-off as we seek to build bridges of understanding between the different colors, cultures, and congregations. There will be an opening prayer service at the new host church the first Wednesday of each month from 6-7 p.m. This service is open to the public, but a special invitation is extended to other congregations within the same zip code cluster.

One-on-One with Dave Choi of Church of the Beloved in Chicago

One-on-One with Dave Choi of Church of the Beloved in Chicago | CityReaching | Scoop.it

The following is the beginnning of Ed Stetzer's interview with David Choi:

    Ed: Dave, you came here and started Church of the Beloved in Chicago, but give me a little backstory. How did you come to start this church?
    Dave: I was getting some offers from churches that were established with senior leaders who are highly respected and seasoned. I was really excited about the possibility of getting mentored by a few of them, so I went to a little chapel in the Billy Graham Center Museum at Wheaton College to fast, pray, and seek the Lord.
    During that time, I felt the Lord saying, “Open up Exodus 33.” It’s the chapter right after Israel had worshiped the golden calf. God was angry with them and said, “You guys can go to the Promised Land, but I won’t go with you,” and Moses basically pleads with God that if His presence doesn’t go with them, what will separate them from all the other people on the earth?
    I got the impression from the Lord that He wanted me to plant a church in Chicago and that His presence would go with me. I decided to say yes to the Lord and started the church on June 21, 2011, with no people, no resources, no denomination, no building, nothing. I knew God wanted me to plant in Chicago somewhere, so I drove around the city. Eventually, through God’s grace, I happened upon a guy who was a Wheaton grad who had a space at his church that was not used on Saturday afternoon. He said he would let us use it for free, and that’s how we started the church.

MOVEMENT DAY GLOBAL CITIES Participation Inspires Philadelphia’s Vision Launch

MOVEMENT DAY GLOBAL CITIES Participation Inspires Philadelphia’s Vision Launch | CityReaching | Scoop.it

On Thursday, March 23, nearly 100 leaders attended a Vision Launch for the “Philadelphia Gospel Movement” hosted by the Servant Team, 21 senior leaders, including former Philadelphia mayor Dr. W. Wilson Goode, Sr. The Philadelphia Gospel Movement is a “Network of Networks,” developing to advance the Christian gospel throughout the city’s metropolitan area. The PGM is taking the shape of three legs of a “kingdom stool”—with marketplace leaders, churches, and nonprofit ministry leaders beginning to work together in new ways. Their vision: 

 1. That a growing percentage of the greater Philadelphia population will become disciples of Jesus. 

 2. That Christians, serving in unity, will meet the greatest and deepest needs of our city and its people. 

 3. That Christian believers will actively live out their faith in such a way that blesses every sphere of the life and culture of Greater Philadelphia. >> CLICK the title to read the entire post.

YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO: Thousands spend Good Friday worshiping at Covelli Centre downtown | CityReaching | Scoop.it

People of different faiths gathered in downtown Youngstown Friday evening. Event organizers were proud and thankful they could share this celebration with the local community.
   “To be working together with all of these churches, over 100 churches, to exalt Jesus Christ at Covelli Centre,” said Bishop David Thomas.
   Bishop Joseph Garlington came from Pittsburgh as the featured speaker. He was happy to have a large audience focusing on a common theme.
   “There are some things that you cannot accomplish as an individual and you cannot accomplish as one group of people,” he said. “So when you get a large mass of people who are headed in the same direction, there is momentum you experience. You look back and you say, ‘Hey, let’s do that again!'” >> CLICK the title to read the entire post and to watch the video.
