Awaken Church

Last night at PRAY I mentioned the three core values of Concept, one is supporting church plants like ours. I have a church plant I want you guys to pray for. They are going to plant in the city of London. Rob and Medea Peabody will be moving this summer but until then, I want people to know how to pray and support them financially. Revival is coming to London, and we claim it in Jesus name.

This is from Rob:

“Friends…

It has been way too long since we have filled you in on the future plans of the Awaken Movement. God has been doing amazing things through this new movement of His Spirit, and it is evidenced that he has been working through you to bring about worshipful change in your communities.

One of our core values is that God desires for His people to be a catalyst of change – that we are His life-bringing agents of the Gospel who are sovereignly placed in the families, communities, and situations in which we find ourselves. Basically, we are Ambassadors for Christ in our world, both on Sundays and the rest of the week.

It has been so humbling to hear the numerous stories of Awaken people putting action to their faith and living out true life change with the people around them! In the short year that we have been in existence, we have seen local schools adopted by local churches, mentoring programs started, festivals for the community hosted by Awakeners, youth groups changing their focus to be missional and engage in biblical justice, money raised to share with the “down and out” of our society, and this is all because the Gospel of Christ is taking root in our lives and changing the way we view our lives… to Him be the praise!

**So, with all of this celebration, I am led to reveal to you the next big season for the life of the Awaken Movement.**

For the past 9 months, God has been working on our hearts (Rob and Joel), and has revealed to us His desire for us to plant an Awaken Church in the great city of London, England.

This has been a long process to come to this conclusion, full of much prayer, conversations with mentors, and contemplation about what God desires for this movement and our lives.

London is a city of 12 million with less than 2% of the population who are practicing evangelicals. It is filled with postmodern thought, Islam, and a spiritual darkness that must be awakened by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

So, to stick to the high notes, we will be re-locating to London in the fall of 2010 to plant Awaken Church London. But, the Awaken Movement does not stop in your community in the states once we have moved. Our desire is to see this movement of Christians who seek to live worship by doing biblical justice in their communities continue to expand – and expand globally come this fall!

Plenty more to come in future emails, but…

**The greatest way you can help at this point is to PRAY, and GIVE to the efforts of Awaken Church London.**

Planting a church and leading a movement is not cheap, and we are convinced that God is leading this thing, and it is He who will move the right people to fund it as well.

Here are the 2 things you can do now:

1) Please PRAY for us in the coming months as we prepare to uproot our lives and take this message to Europe. Ask God to work in us through this process, to prepare hearts in London, to bring the right people on our team to see Awaken Church become reality, for the Spirit’s guiding to loosen people’s finances so that they may give in order to expand His Kingdom overseas.

2) Prayerfully, and sacrificially, GIVE to Awaken Church London. If this ministry has been a blessing to you in anyway, then give to what God is doing. We have never asked for money up to this point, but am now convinced that it is time to put our finances behind Awaken for it to become what God’s plans are for it.

Please prayerfully consider joining our partnership team by giving $25, $50, $100, or more per month to the ministry of Awaken.

Awaken is now a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, so your donations are tax-deductible.

Ok, that is it for now, but plenty more to come… We consider you friends and partners in this message and feel so encouraged by your love and support! Blessings to you this new year, may God lead us all to live radically for our Sovereign King. He is the only One worth giving all of ourselves too.

To Him be the glory…”
