X150 Update on Center Church (Charlottesville, VA)
One of the churches that you are supporting through Calvary’s X150 movement is a collegiate church plant located near the University of Virginia in Charlottesville! 91% of people in Charlottesville and 95% of students at UVA do not have a personal relationship with Christ. But Josh Miller, the church planter, and his team want to change that by bringing the Gospel to the city and planting a church in this strategic location!
God has been moving in a big way since we last updated you and asked you to pray for them a few months ago! Check out these answered prayers:
-This past Saturday, they hosted their first membership class. Nine new people went through the process, bringing the launch team to forty-six adults!
-As of last Friday, every member of their team has secured housing and five more team members have locked down jobs!
-They are close to securing two needed places, one that can accommodate their launch team this fall and another that will allow them to host public worship services in January.
How can you continue to be praying for them?
-Pray for disciple-making- that the Gospel would motivate the team to share with non-believers.
-Pray for favor with freshman- that they’d see two UVA students accept Christ during the first ten days of the school year.
-Pray for their Discipleship Conference- this weekend, they are hosting a two day training conference for their team, and are asking God to be particularly present to bless in this time!
We love seeing God moving and answering prayers and taking care of His church, and we love seeing people be faithful to God’s call to multiply their lives. Want to multiply yours? Visit calvary.us/x150 to see how you can give to X150 or go serve a church plant!
