Enlarging Our Territory!

1 Chronicles 4:10 (NIV)
Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.

I’m so excited to announce that God is “enlarging our territory” as we launch the first Sunday of our new Champion Extension Service to be held at the Yuma Palms RV Resort.  Our vision is to see many extension services birthed over the coming year, both in our city and beyond.  These services will take Champion into the neighborhoods and communities of Yuma and other cities, and extend our ministry’s reach to so many more people with the unconditional life-giving message of Jesus Christ.

Halloween at Champion!

“If we don’t give these kids something to do on a night like Halloween then we’re gonna loose them all to the world, and in the end the devil will win”

My mom (Miss Marilyn) said this at a Church meeting back in the early 70’s.
She was the leader over all the Sunday School’s departments at our Church and asked to
to have a meeting with all the Church leaders who were up against what to do with the “devil’s’ holiday (which happened to be on a Wednesday night and that was Church night.)

Back in those days if you were a Christian you were against the whole Halloween thing and I mean… hatefully against it!
My mom was fully prepared with a plan when the leaders said, “well what can we do?”
She set out a plan.

I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, ‘Because of you, I didn’t give up.’

It was so encouraging to see this Instagram post from @laur3ncraft! I wanted to share it with those who inspire me the most in life… You, the Champion!!

It’s SO important for us to stop and pause, taking a moment to reflect on the BLESSING and INSPIRATION we are in the lives of others. “YOU” ARE A TRUE BLESSING and “YOU” INSPIRE MANY!!!

Today Pastor Stephen and I were out at the Pumpkin Patch and seeing all the orange tee-shirts was an incredible sight. Of course the Champion Volunteers were in full form as they prepared to lead little ones from station to station.

Worship In God’s House

By | Worship | 6 Comments

I Love seeing people worshiping God with their whole heart. At our church in Yuma AZ there’s no greater feeling then knowing God has everything under control and all we need to do is trust in Him, that he would bring it to pass. Recently, the women at the Sisterhood PM night did just that.

Psalm 37:5 says, ‘Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.’ (NKJV)

When you learn the power of a commitment to God, you begin to see what a blessed life really looks like. In my message last Wednesday night at our Worship And Creative Arts Night, I touched on how God doesn’t want you to live your life trying to do everything right as if it were a check list. If I were to live out the relationships in my life where it was all about simply checking off goals on a list in order to develop those relationships, I would be one lonely person! But, I Believe that when you live your life where its not about what you do, but who you are, your life reaches a true potential where ‘my life is not about being good, but with God, my life is FREE!’
