It’s a memory that I hope to always carry with me. Currey Creek was officially sending out a group of people to establish a new church in Boerne called The Bridge Fellowship. It was August 16th and Currey Creek had reserved the center section of the auditorium to have us sit in. After John preached an incredible message commissioning us out we were sent through a particular door at the back of the sanctuary. Above the door states one of Currey Creek’s vision statements: Engage.
If you’ve been at Currey Creek a while you have undoubtedly heard John or the staff refer to “Engaging the culture.” It’s a great statement highlighting exactly what every believer is called to do. We are called to be salt and light to a culture that desperately needs to hear the gospel! More times than not you will find throughout church history that in order to engage the culture effectively, it comes through multiplication. Men and women who are willing to step out of their comfort zone and do the hard work of ministry. There is always new ground to take, there is always more gospel conversations to have and one of the greatest enemies to this kind of missional movement is our comfort. Not willing to take risks.
You sent us out with prayer, people and resources. It was a huge risk. We walked out of a great, established church. It was a huge risk. We are now 6 months old and God has done above and beyond all we could ever hope or imagine. God has saved 16 people, we became self sustaining within the first month, (most church plants take 2-3 years!) we have grown by almost 200 people each week either in-person or online, we are seeing new families that do not have any connection to any church visit us. The risk was right! God is doing amazing work among both churches!
Keep up the great work Currey Creek! Together we are seeing God move in some spectacular ways in our wonderful town.
