Good News Santa Barbara - santa barbara, ca

July 8-12, 2017

Mission: To bring the Good News to Santa Barbara a few days before the SBC Convention, with outdoor connect events.

History: It all began in the Conejo Valley of Southern California.  Rex & Sherry Holt saw the need and began to have Bible studies, which they now call missional communities, that would form the first church Conejo (Rabbit) Community Church. God began to impress upon Rex the need of the culture and that is to have missional communities that form into multiplying churches that top out at around 200 people.  The idea is to analyze the target culture to see the best way to engage them in relationship-building in order to live out the gospel. It is also accomplished where they are in the market place, schools, parks, etc.  Therefore, the Conejo Church Planting Network was born.

The Hwy 101 Corridor is impoverished of missional churches. Since Conejo was planted, the network has planted Saticoy and Mercy Chapel.  Saticoy meets on Sunday morning near Ventura and Mercy Chapel meets in Augora on Saturday night and is less than a year old. Now Santa Barbara is targeted as the next plant, with a church planter already trained and ready to go.

The city’s population is 100,000 with some of Hollywood’s elite, as well a whole bunch in between middle-class and the homeless.  Rex has mentored a church planter by the name of Tim Bruce (wife Erin). Tim is bi-vocational in Santa Barbara at the Apple store.  He is very intentional and will always work as a bi-vocational church planter. CBC is currently supporting the Bruce’s to plant the church.

Work: This will involve some prayer walking in Santa Barbara leading to an outdoor connect event that helps the church planting team meet more people to build relationships. The team will help plan and implement the connect event.

Price: Cost is $1,200 per person including airfare, rental car, food, and lodging. Meals will be fast food in local restaurants and transportation will be rental vehicles.

spokane, wa - family carnival project

july 20-24

Mission: In this northern suburb of Spokane, the team will blitz the community with information of upcoming Carnival while prayer walking, help prepare the carnival, and serve during the event, in preparation for a pre- launch service leading to a September launch of the church.

Background: A good many of the SBC churches planted in Spokane were planted in the 60’s but retained the southern culture and made little-to-no connection to the Washingtonians. Now these churches are dying off, leaving paid-off buildings.  This has given meeting places to the Pinnacle Church, The Rock, and now the Pinnacle network is launching Nine Mile Falls Church Plant in this northern suburb of Spokane called Nine Mile Falls.

Nine Mile Falls will launch in September of 2017 and this team will help raise the excitement in the community of the upcoming church plant.  The team will help blitz the community of the upcoming carnival and pre-launch service on July 23 through door hangers and personal contact. The team will help prepare the carnival, man the booths, and take it down. The team will assist in set up and participate in the pre-launch service. Monday will be used for follow-up from the Sunday Services.

Logistics: Cost is $1,200 per person including airfare, rental car, food, and lodging. If the team is less than 10, you will be hosted in homes.  If larger, some will stay on air mattresses in The Rock Church. Meals will be fast food in local restaurants and transportation will be rental vehicles.

You will be warmly received as you serve them free coffee or water.  Lying on the counter will be an evangel cube.

Through service projects like picking up trash and serving free coffee and water to the participants at Pow-Wows, it has opened the gospel to many. You get the opportunity to see God at work.
