Opportunity: Adopt An Evangelist

Hi Home Group Leaders! We are including a special invitation from Pastor Paul Moffett this month, Senior Associate Pastor and Pastor of Missions. As you consider who you might give to for Christmas, we invite you to consider praying for and financially supporting one of the attached evangelists. Lighthouse has 4 SAIL (Southeast Asia Institute of Leadership) evangelists that would appreciate your love and support. Attached is the name and a description of each evangelist that needs monthly support. Lighthouse partners with SAIL and Project 92 to support their evangelist missionary team. The missionary team are SAIL graduates who are now on the front-lines as pioneer missionaries in their area. They are all operating in the 10/40 Window (The area of the most unreached people groups.)

Would you please pray and decide, as a home group, if you will share the cost and commit to giving $40.00 each month, as a group, to one of the attached evangelists? As an example, this means that your group would “adopt” one evangelist. Then if you have 10 people in your home group, each person would contribute to the group fund an amount of $4.00 per person or $8.00 per couple per month. This is only $48 a month!

Please email Pastor Paul Moffett at paul@lighthousehome.org with the name of your Home Group, group leader, and the evangelist you would like to support. He will then contact your group leader to finalize the commitment and discuss how to contribute the monthly funds.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support of these evangelists and families who are sharing the gospel in hard to reach places.

What Are You Thankful For?

This week, many of us will sit around the dinner table and discuss what we are most thankful for. Sometimes the answer is obvious, and sometimes we struggle. This video (less than three minutes) keeps it real. Watch.

From all of us at Lighthouse, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.

Skin In The Game

Andy Stanley, the Senior Pastor of North Point Community Church (Georgia) and author of many books including The Next Generation Leader, recently cancelled his weekend sermon to have a candid conversation concerning race, racism and faith in front of the congregation. I think it’s worth watching. Click below to stream it now.

What Are You Looking For?
