Changed Lives
in Our Family

What a privilege it is to serve Jesus and our Radiant Family!

Thank you for an amazing life changing 2017. We are also believing God for even greater 2018 for His Glory!

As we reflect on what a great Church is for God, we look at His call for lives. He did not say come and grow but to come and die. Jesus says in Matthew 16:24, "If any of you wants to be My follower you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow Me."

All of Jesus' promises about the greatness of the Church are tied to sending not gathering. We should not want to build a great big church. We need to reach our city with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We need to take the Gospel into places around our community like Changed Life Centers, Second Saturdays, and the entire world were Jesus is not known. If God grows our church in the process of that, then so be it.

Let's devote ourselves in 2018 not to gathering and counting, but to empowering and sending. Sending capacity, not seating capacity should be the measure of any great New Testament Church.

We ask you to join us in prayer, service, and giving toward this once-in-a-lifetime cause. Let's Love God and Love His People like never before. Our two goals in life are make it to heaven and take as many people as we can with us!

Let's make 2018 all about Jesus. Do all He has for us to do in the short amount of time we have to do it. And as your pastors, we will one day watch Jesus tell each of you… "Well done good and faithful servant!"

We love you. Please let us know how to serve you and your families best.

Changed Lives
in Our Future

God has Given His Church a Clear Model to Multiply It

As we look into 2018, we are praying about Changed Life Centers. A place that is open daily to meet tangible needs specifically designed for that community. Supplying needs for:

+After School Programs +Food +Clothing +GED +ESL +Job Training +Dental & Medical Help +Drug, Sex, Parenting & Marriage Counseling +Haircuts +Foster Care +Abused Women +Widows & Single Parents +Those in Prison & Their Children +Elderly Care +Special Needs +Transportation +School Supplies +Hope +And So Much More!

All this with one purpose in mind… tell people about JESUS!

Let's put a church right in the middle of the center. Not limited to the weekend, but daily telling and showing people the love of JESUS!

Let's pray as a family. Asking God for favor to secure the location in His timing all for His Glory!

God has turned our focus on the wonderful people and neighbors in El Mirage. There's a great need for help in that community. We will need everyone to pray, be willing to serve at the center daily, serve at the church on Sundays, and give to make this happen.

Ask the Lord how you should serve and give to REACH people in the Changed Life Centers.

We are excited to see how God opens doors for this to happen and to see all the people that will make it to Heaven as He calls them through the ministries of Radiant Church. Thank you for saying yes… Here am I Lord… I am willing to go… Send me! (Isaiah 6:8)
