I remember the initial discussions with the senior minister of One Hope in Lane County Oregon, Steve Buss, almost two years ago. Last May they launched the 1Church1Day strategy. They had already been successfully serving their community for over a decade and had a network of churches. The the 1Church1Day strategy has proven to be a force multiplier for them.
I just returned from Oregon where I had the privilege of meeting with Steve and hearing a first had report of all God has been doing in them and through them to impact their community. On the day of their launch last May, as we've seen since 2005, God marked their launch with supernatural signs and wonders like we've recorded in my book "Operation Rolling Thunder" click here. They experienced 225 lightning strikes and 5 earth quakes click here. They were even featured in a Charisma Magazine article last January click here. Now, here is there one year report click here.
Now recognize, they were praying before they used the 1Church1Day strategy. The elements of wisdom and biblical principles our method helped the Church apply serve as a "FORCE MULTIPLIER." They've been greatly blessed by the resulting unity (39 churches engaged and soon to be 41) and have seen unemployment decline for the first time in 5 years, businesses blessed, city government served, education impacted, police department blessed, fire department protected, and..... souls saved leading to church growth. The testimonies are marvelous and we are excited to see what Christ will do this coming year.
My friends, you know we've been working on a mobile app, actually a strategic communication system that automates the 1Church1Day strategy. It is going to greatly magnify the number of communities we can reach to serve their leadership teams like we've served Steve's in Lane County. I'd like to invite you to partner with us in spreading this powerful strategy in this coming year. Click here.
Why are we doing this?
It is because this system unites the Church and increases it's power and effectiveness through the application of a number of key biblical principles combined with wisdom from heaven and earth through the councils we help form in the 7 mountains. The fruit or result of this is:
This will exponentially increase the number of teams involved in kingdom collaboration. This is a FORCE MULTIPLIER!
How many times have you day dreamed of what could be in your business, school, or profession for the sake of Christ? Sometimes it can get kind of exciting. But then doubts begin to creep in to kill the vision and you think well what difference would one person make? What difference could I make?
I want to share with you a short testimony from a teacher who began working with us following the 1Church1Day.org strategy. Now I don't know if she struggled with thoughts like this but in years past I know I did. In order to protect what God is doing I'm not going to share with you who she is nor which school we are talking about. We actually receive many testimonies from kingdom minded ministers making an impact in business, high levels of government, education, the Church and more that if we shared with you the details it would destroy that minister's effectiveness.
With that in mind here's a recent report we received from a teacher regarding the dramatic turn around in the areas of literacy and math declaring:
This progress is very praise worthy. We have never seen such growth.
This teacher has been a teacher for over 25 years. She loves them and she loves Jesus. She's been praying for her students for years but this year she did something different.
