In late February an event was conducted in Madison and La Crosse called Operation Reach. The purpose of Operation Reach was to identify new places to plant churches. Training was conducted and then the participants went out into the communities. Places and people groups were identified where new churches should be planted.
We are thankful to Ken Holland and Keith Dixon who came from North Carolina to lend us their expertise. Both of them have seen God use these events to stir the hearts of pastors and leaders to start new churches. Our prayer is the Lord will do the same here in Wisconsin.
In Madison and La Crosse numerous places were identified in the suburbs all around the city of Madison. Population growth has exceeded church growth by leaps and bounds over a number of years. The vast majority of the population for both La Crosse and Madison is unchurched.
Our prayer as we move forward is to pray for new laborers to come into the harvest. Please pray the prayer of our Lord Jesus that the Lord of the harvest will raise up laborers for the harvest is great and the laborers are few. We are trusting God will do great things in the days to come by drawing new church planters to Wisconsin. If you are interested in planting a church in Wisconsin please do call us at 608-244-5928 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to pray for this cause please let us know that as well.
Thank you in advance for joining us in this movement to see new churches started throughout southern Wisconsin!!!
