Leadership 104: Stay Salty!!!!

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

Matthew 5:13 New International Version
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.”

Pastor Stephen’s Message on Sunday was off the chain; wasn’t it?! It’s true…YOU,ME…US…we’re the salt to the world…we’re the answer! It is our job from rising to sleeping to do our best to think on heavenly things. It is our duty to God to bring heaven to earth as best and as much as we can while we’re here.

However, many times we lose focus of that duty and calling because we’re running late, our house is a mess, a co-worker drives us nuts, we can’t do anything 100% perfect, etc, etc…the list goes on. We end up going around and around a never ending wheel of problem solving for silly, petty things without even realizing if we would just change our mind-sets for a matter of 5-minutes, WE COULD CHANGE THE WORLD.

Tonight when you get off work and go home, try spending your time doing this:

1. Spend your drive home (or five minutes of quietness in the bathroom if that’s all you can do) and think of all the things that drove you absolutely crazy today. While doing that, even if it’s difficult or nearly impossible, decide to give those situations the benefit-of-the-doubt. Give each moment a positive twist.

2. Read the Bible for five minutes before bed…even if it’s just one passage. Do the same thing in the morning. The Word of God says to “Meditate day and night”. You may not end up perfect tomorrow…but I guarantee you’ll be closer to the Kingdom of Heaven then you were today.

3. When you wake up in the morning…try and give every situation the benefit-of-the-dout. On top of that…ask yourself…”what good shall I do this day?”.

After all, Ben Franklin asked himself this question every morning…enough said.


Blessing and love to all of my Champion family!


All the Best,

Out With The Old and In With The New …

Leadership Rule 103: Leaders are regularly out with the old and in with the new

Isaiah 43:19

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.


When was the last time you REALLY believed God for something? Sometimes our faith can seem stagnant because our life is “alright”. At times, we can seem to be comfortable in “alright” and settle for “average”. But why should you settle? God hasn’t settled! God wants your life to be of his excellence, his power, his strength and his divinity and wants that because he knows if he can show off in one person’s life, then he can show off in the entire world!


Today’s Leadership Rule is SIMPLE: Be out with the old and in with the new! Let the past be the past and begin to believe God for new things. Let’s all try these three steps together:

Step 1: Take a look at your life and the lives of others around you. Have you settled and become comfortable with a sibling or loved one not knowing who Jesus is? Get uncomfortable with it! Jesus desires to save that loved one. Today…say a little prayer for that person’s salvation and watch God and believe in him to do miracles.

Step 2: Ask yourself…when was the last time I just rested in God? When was the last time you just let everything else go for a while? Today…take 5 minutes  to simply sit or lay down, close your eyes and just think on things above and listen for God. Colossians 3:2 (NIV) 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Step 3: Look yourself in the mirror…and no matter what…SMILE. Because, God is smiling down on you. Numbers 6:25 (NLT) May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you.

Be blessed today and always.


All the best,

Jade Bloomfield

Leadership 102: Leaders Are Willing To Be Molded

Leaders Are Willing To Be Molded

Isaiah 64:8 “Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”

potter and clay black and white

Leaders have a difficult task… In this life there are many ups and many downs. Many opportunities to have a good perspective and many opportunities to have a bad perspective. Nonetheless, God is ultimately the one in control. During my devotional this morning (before the crazy morning rush to get dressed, make coffee, iron, clean, do my hair and makeup and make sure there’s enough gas in the car) I had five minutes to read a quick glimpse of God’s Word.

My morning daily devotional was all about when Paul (was in prison and he found out that others were preaching the Gospel out of bad motives in order to put his name to shame. Typically, in this day and age, if we found out someone was purposefully going out of their way to put our names to shame, we would react with a bad attitude or a mouthful of witty things to say. But surprisingly, Paul responds with “But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice.” (Phillippians 1:18).

Today is Wednesday…it’s the middle of the week. Perhaps you’ve already got your foot in a hole with someone at work or at home. BUT!! THE WEEK ISN’T OVER YET! Here’s a few points to keep in mind…

I Commit to Pray For Persecuted Christians

I Commit To Pray For Persecuted Christians

“I commit to pray for persecuted Christians” is a campaign and commitment to stand with the unsung Champion Christians of our time who are silently, yet bravely living out their Christianity in the face of oppression, torture, and death.   

Champions come in many packages. Some are moms and dads who sacrifice for their kids, some are students who standup for their faith to their peers and teachers, some go to the less fortunate and minister to their needs, some use their businesses to resource the kingdom of God so the local church can be a strong voice to our community and world. For all of those we must commit to pray.

Others are Champions for Christ and heroes of the faith because they live under horrendous religious oppression, and have had no choice but to rise to the occasion in the face of terror and death.  They are the ones around the world who suffer the worst of human atrocities simply because they are Christians, and they desperately need you and I to say, “I Commit To Pray”.

Everyday, include these brave Christians in your prayers that they continue to have the supernatural strength to refuse to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ, even to the point of death or worse.  Pray for miracles of salvation for their captors and persecutors, and pray for the battle to be won through Jesus Christ.

Champion Church is joining with to keep these Champions of faith in prayer, and to hold them up before God as they face untold dangers and hardships.

“I Commit To Pray” is a connection point created by “The Voice of The Martyrs” ( to tell the stories of these heroes of faith and to connect us, the ‘free’ church, to the reality of what our brothers and sisters in Christ experience everyday.

Hebrews 13:3 Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.

The war against Christianity is raging both here and around the world, by ruthless and relentless wolves, and yet the message of love and forgiveness shines in the faces of Persecuted Champions. I strongly encourage you to add “I Commit To Pray” to your commonly visited sites, and receive their updates so you can do your part to hold up the hands of those paying a heavy cost for their faith. Your connect group should take a suggested story from “I Commit To Pray” each week, and pray for them everyday.

Teachable Moments

by Pastors Stephen & LaCinda Bloomfield

Last week LaCinda and I spoke together for Mother’s Day about creating “Teachable Moments” with your kids, or anyone you are an influence to.

Kids are mirrors

Every moment can be an opportunity to help build the faith of those who are looking to us to guide them and help them make confident decisions and choices.  Even challenging moments of bad behavior, or how you face a crisis can be a teachable moment.  If we are fearful, worried, or depressed, our kids will automatically imitate those things.

Here are 3 keys we can use to teach our kids how to be courageous overcomers and champions, from our message.

 1) Teach your kids to trust God for themselves

Psalms 78:5-7  He commanded our ancestors to teach their children [God’s Word],  6 so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.  7 Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.  

Rather than being negative, take every opportunity to impart faith and trust in God, point them to the Word, agree with them in faith that God is working it out.

2) Teach your kids to love God’s word everyday

Deuteronomy 6:4-7   Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 

A mountain view, a person less fortunate than yourself, a great victory, or a hard lesson are all opportunities to point out God’s purposes at work.  God made the mountains, God loves the poor person, nothing is impossible with God, God’s grace is sufficient for us…

3) Our kids are our reflections

Galatians 5:22-23   But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! 

Our influence is more “caught” than taught.  Are we displaying unconditional love, a peace-making attitude, patience, kindness, etc… Our kids are learning to handle life from us, so let’s be aware of how we are reacting in front of them.

This Week…

Join us for part two of “Teachable Moments”.  Don’t miss this powerful teaching for your family.

Pastor Stephen and LaCinda Cut The Ribbon To Our New Parking Lot

Cutting The Ribbon

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It was an amazing moment as we cut the ribbon on Sunday for the opening of the new miracle parking lot – dedicated to the unconditional love, grace, and hope that Jesus brings to all who receive Him.

In 2 Chronicles 2:4  Solomon said, “Now I am about to build a temple for the Name of the Lord my God and to dedicate it to him for burning fragrant incense before him.” The fragrant incense we offer God today is when His house is filled with people – full of praise, joy, laughter, unity, faith, and love.  The paving of our parking lot will allow us to reach many more people and fill His house with fragrant praise!

We dared to believe

We dared to believe God for the impossible – to have our parking lot done before the 2014 Pumpkin Patch.  When we made this declaration of faith a few months ago, there was no way it could be finished until next year, BUT GOD isn’t limited by our circumstances!  He opened miraculous doors and we are now moving into the greatest season we’ve seen yet.
Thank you to all our friends and partners who continue to stand behind the vision of God through Champion Church – you are true Kingdom Builders!

Love Uprising Movement!

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

The Love Uprising Movement has begun with a huge heart beat of LOVE!!

From the very beginning Champion Church has focused on being the hands, HEART and feet of Jesus and this month we’re shinning a light on it and giving you ways to explode with Gods love to our very hurting world!

The Love Uprising movement is an amazing opportunity for You to;
1. Renew your personal love and commitment to your Savior Jesus Christ.
2. Renew your love and commitment to His House in praying, serving and giving.
3. Be open and ready for God to show
you where and how His love is needed and it’s needed EVERYWHERE!!!

Here’s just a couple things happening for you and your children to be part of:

Over the next several weeks the Love Uprising will be delivering mounds of food to our local Food Bank.
We we’re so honored to have had Mike Ivers from the Yuma Community Food Bank come and thank us for all we do- He shared how on his first day of being at The Food Bank Tim Dunn, the producer of our Pumpkin Patch showed up with tons of pumpkins to bless those who needed them. Tim prayed for him and Mr. Ivers said, “I’ve felt connected to Champion Church from that day forward and I’ve always wanted to thank you for the pumpkins you bring to us each year!”

We’re launching our weekend lunch program for our students at Carver Elementary School who depend on the lunch program for weekday meals and we’ll now provide them with their weekend meals by partnering with the Power Pack Lunch Program.

You can bring in all food items this week- perishables, non perishables, lunch items, hygiene items, and baby diapers (very needed) along with baby food, cereals and wipes.

Be sure to pass out your Love Uprising Movement card to someone this week. It’s SO exciting to hear all that God is doing through you… You are legend status in our eyes, a true Champion to Gods heart… One who STANDS and fights for another!

Uprise on~
We “LOVE” you,
Pastors Stephen & LaCinda xox

We Are Paving The Way!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Hello Champion friends and family! I am so excited to be standing in the construction zone of our brand new parking lot!  This is the Pave The Way dream and it is happening right now.  If you’ve been in our services lately you’ve heard me talking about having the Champion Church Parking Lot paved and ready for the Pumpkin Patch in October.  When I began sharing that with you it was an impossible dream, BUT GOD specializes in the impossible!  We started praying and believing, and giving, and God miraculously opened doors for this dream to happen. We are paving the way!

During the Pumpkin Patch season, many thousands of people come to Champion to enjoy the wonderful family atmosphere, and spend time with each other in a safe and friendly environment.  It’s a treasured time for families and our community to come together.  Of course with that many people, comes all kinds of burdens and challenges they are dealing with, and when they get to Champion, our goal is to show them the unconditional love of Jesus.  The Pumpkin Patch has become one of the largest attended and most loved events in the city of Yuma, and we are blessed to be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus to our city.

NOW, thanks to the Pave The Way Partners, they will park on the new parking lot, and have a safe drop off zone for the children and families. Also there will be a new turning lane on Avenue 5E,  so that as people come in from either direction they’ll have a safe entrance to the property.

What a blessing! This is the time for us to celebrate and I am so blessed that you have participated as you have. With your prayers, faith, and support, it is getting done.  It’s an amazing day!

We still need everyone to give and continue Paving the Way

Champion Church: Pave the Way for the Parking Lot

Please continue standing with us and trusting God for all the provision to come in.  We are not there yet, and we need everyone to take part in this exciting vision for our church and community, and get it done!  If everyone gave even $20.00 every week extra, it would make a difference.
