in august i started leading worship for the relevant singles ministry in weatherford, tx. this ministry is sponsored by the new river fellowship church and meets every tuesday night. while the ministry has been going on for over a year, last night we "launched" into a city-wide singles ministry. the majority of the people that had been attending were members of new river fellowship, so the hope is to use the ministry to reach the many singles of parker county, tx. we held the "launch" service at texas star ranch, which is located in peaster, tx (right outside of weatherford). their facilities are amazing and they have kindly agreed to let us use the ranch once a month for our worship services, which we are very excited about. we hope that by providing a meeting place that is located "outside the church walls" we will be able to reach and impact more people. God answered our prayers last night in many different ways (weather, logistics, etc), and blessed us with around 120 people (which is amazing considering that we tend to have around 30-40 on our regular tuesday night services).
this post is nothing more than just a ministry update. most of you know about the ministries that i am involved in weekly, so i wanted to let you know about what God is doing in this specific one. we would appreciate your prayers as we attempt to allow God to use us to impact the thousands of singles in parker county.
