In the fall of 2017, we began to host a Bible study on Tuesday evenings. This Bible study was an opportunity for folks to hear messages that were captured for inContext podcasts. Many who attended the Tuesday study expressed appreciation for the ‘verse-by-verse’ exposition of God’s Word.
During this past year many have expressed interest in launching a church. After much prayer and deliberation, God has made it clear in our hearts to take this step.
Join us as we pray for God’s blessing and leading.
When: Sundays @ 9:30am, beginning August 19
Where: 7104 Crossroads Blvd, Suite #105
Brentwood, TN 37027
Our Tuesday evening Bible study was an opportunity for folks to hear messages that were captured for inContext podcasts. Many who attended appreciated the ‘verse-by-verse’ exposition of God’s Word. During this past year, many expressed interest in launching a church.
2. Why start a church now?
Several reasons converge. First, we desire to honor Christ and His church, which is grounded on exposition and disciple making. We desire to have a core group of believers who are committed to worship, pray, serve, give, and share the gospel with others. At the end of the day, Christ builds His church and we are commissioned to make disciples.
3. Will you provide child care or children’s Sunday school?
Children are welcome in the service. At first, we will not have resources to provide a children’s ministry. We are hopeful that new leaders will take ownership to provide a children’s ministry.
4. Do you intend for participants to give financially?
Simply, yes. We are grateful that Ramsey Solutions is allowing us the use of their facility. Moving to Sunday increases expenses including personnel who will oversee audio/video, technology, worship, and facility care. We are praying that God will move in the hearts of those attending to meet these needs. For those who choose to give, checks will be written to “MJE Broadcasting, Inc.” with a memo designation “church launch”. The inContext website will also provide the option to designate online donations. Eventually we will establish the new church with its own account and oversight.
5. Why this location? Will it be permanent?
The Financial Peace Conference Center is well suited for our needs. We will be investigating longer term options.
6. What commitment are you making to the longevity of this church?
In starting a church, we do not want to be presumptuous. Our hope is that the Lord will work in and through us to exalt the person and work of Jesus Christ.
We are committed to this as God leads and His people respond. None of us knows our futures, but we walk by faith. God has made it clear in our hearts to take this step. Join us as we pray for God’s blessing and leading.
7. What programs will you have in place?
We are not beginning with a full set of programs or ministries. We have chosen to start and see how the Lord leads His people to participate. Our commitment is to provide a foundation of biblical exposition and be intentional about making disciples. From this foundation we pray other ministries will flourish.
8. How can I help?
Pray. Come. Give. Grow. Share Christ with others. Make disciples.
