It has been an exciting time for the Robinson family since we landed back in Jacksonville at the beginning of May. I can definitely say that moving isn't easy. Leaving relationships you value and have invested in is truly the hardest part. But we know that God is calling us to begin a new church in North Jax with Chets Creek Church. We believe in faith that the North campus will be a church for the unchurched, here and around the world.
Here's a few updates on the progress of the launch of the North Campus!
- We have a location. We have a local school that we will begin meeting in, and will have preview services in the fall. God has already blessed us with great relationships with the school administration as we move forward.
- We are shooting for a January 2017 launch. As we move forward with the timeline, we are searching for opportunities to serve the community, build relationships and develop a launch team.
- We have our first interest meeting on July 17. I'll be preaching at the Chets Creek Hodges Campus that weekend and immediately following the 11:15am service, we will have a special meeting for those interested in praying, serving, and supporting the campus. As we are building a launch team, we are praying that God will reveal who will go with us from the existing campuses and those that are unchurched in North Jax.
- We have an incredible worship band forming. We have had a great response from a talented, passionate group of musicians and singers for the campus.
If you are interested in partnering with the launch of the North Campus, you can send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Above all, please pray for God to lead the North Campus to reach people with the transforming power of the gospel. Please pray for God to reveal where He is working and how we can come alongside to serve.
