A LETTER FROM PASTOR MATT:
May 28, 2019
It is with great anticipation I send this letter to you. God has called us, Kingsway Christian Church, to live on Mission with Him. As we look out into the future, we believe that means launching as many churches as possible that will each focus on their communities for the glory of God. Right now, God has placed 2 particular towns on our hearts to begin living this dream: Avon and Plainfield.
As your pastor, I find myself praying, “Father, we want your Kingdom to come and your will to be done in your church as it is in Heaven. How do we best honor you and advance your Kingdom in this next season?” In light of that prayer, I want to share with you about a new opportunity that is in front of us. I think this is what God is up to next at KCC, however, I won’t know for sure until several more things happen. I’ll explain what the opportunity is and then give details about next steps:
The opportunity is this: Kingsway Christian School (KCS) is prayerfully and strategically considering whether they would be interested in purchasing the entire KCC campus at 10th and Dan Jones for Christian Education. They are in conversation with Covenant Christian High School (Covenant) about a potential partnership in this endeavor.
No decision has been made at this time, and each of the three organizations is trying to communicate to its people in a timely and consistent manner that we are exploring, studying, and praying about this opportunity. KCS has committed to KCC that it will inform us with a letter of intent by June 15, 2019, of its desire to continue moving forward or not.
Right now we need the entire body of Christ at KCC to join together in prayer, asking questions, and listening for the voice of God. Join us in asking God to continue to move in the hearts of the lost in our community, and to open the right doors for us to be able to accomplish His plans.
If KCS says “yes” on June 15, (through a letter of intent to KCC) there would be a full congregational vote in the future to determine if this is what the church believes God is asking us to do. We will continue to have a thriving campus in Avon, and are presently looking at options.
I want to give you as much information as possible, and I also realize this letter is incapable of interacting with you and answering all of your questions and concerns. That is why there are two separate informational meetings that will be held on Wednesday, June 5 from 6-7:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 8 from 9-10:30 a.m. in the Venue. There will be a presentation at each of these meetings, and then a Q & A time to ask questions. You are welcome to attend both meetings.
Our desire is to walk this road together to discover the will of our great God. The remaining pages of this letter will help to describe some of the reasons why we believe this could be the will of God and communicate about any other details related to the next steps as best we can see them today. Please go to www.kingswaychurch.org/avon-campus to gain even more insight and information any time.
I look forward to seeing you soon as we share together how we are hearing from God!
