With over 100 nations represented at the University of Manitoba and 20% of graduates scattering the globe upon graduation, we can literally reach the nations by reaching the university. With 80% of graduates staying in the province, many of whom stay right in Winnipeg, we can transform the very fabric of our city by reaching these students with the gospel.

We have been gathering with a core group since September of 2013 preparing the team for the launch of The Light Church. In casting vision to our core group, we encouraged our group to leverage our lives around the University of Manitoba. In Septmeber 2014 we launched our first worship service. Since that time we have seen God work in so many different ways as more and more students are being introduced to Jesus.

Prayer Points:

Salvations:  We have already seen 3 people make a profession of faith. Onc young man from China who was an athiest before joining our Bible studies. Two other young ladies from India have decided to follow Jesus. Please pray that more people from around the globe trust in Jesus at the University of Manitoba.

Partners:

Celebration Church, Atchison Kansas

Scott and Melissa Murphy

Scott Murphy family

Scott Murphy, his wife Melissa, and family are working to establishing Celebration Church in Atchison, Kansas. God has given them a vision to plant a community of faith that will plant other communities of faith – starting in Atchison and then spreading outward to the “uttermost parts of the earth”. This mission involves maturing and developing followers of Christ who are capable of reproducing other maturing followers of Christ. They have seen Gospel fruit produced, primarily among the youth of the city. Connecting with many families through food pantry distribution and sports camps, Scott sees God’s affirmation in his calling to Atchison through baptisms and changed lives.

Pray with us… That God’s concern and compassion for Atchison will be made evident to families and community leaders in the city. That the ongoing ministries of Celebration Church will introduce people to the love and hope that Jesus offers.

NAMB Missionaries – Omaha, NE

poseyRick and Angie Posey

After 15 years in the pastoral ministry, God made it very plain that we were to move to the Omaha area and start multiple churches in multiple cities in north Douglas and Washington County in Nebraska and Harrison County in Iowa.  Our call is to “share our story”  (Ps. 107:2 NIV) everywhere we go, so that we will have opportunities to intentionally share Jesus’ story of salvation. As God calls people to salvation our passion is to train them to make disciples, to make disciples, to make disciples. [Read more…]

Richard and Amber Crowson moved from the Memphis area to answer the church-planting call in Sioux City, IA. It is their desire to see a new church that honors Jesus through a faithful Gospel presence in Sioux City via a local church that proclaims the Christ and him crucified and loves its neighbors like Christ did. They pray that they will make disciples to the Glory of God.
