As Candlewood embarks upon another chapter in our story we thought it may be good to let you know some of your pastors’ reasons.
We have been praying for over fifteen years that God would use us to be His witnesses both in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. In today’s translation it may read Omaha, Nebraska, Iowa and the world, to which God has been answering these prayers.
As your pastors were evaluating the spiritual health and life of Candlewood, we would find ourselves asking God, ‘Is this what you would have of us? Lord, is there something different you would have us do?’
Our desire as a church is that we would always be risk takers, faith walkers, big dreamers, hard workers, and prayer warriors for God.
Yet the question would continue to rise, ‘God do you want something more of us,’ and the answer was a resounding ‘YES! Get out of the boat, do something adventure some, walk where you have not been before.’ We believe this move will have a direct influence on who we are as a church and who we will become for the next twenty years.
God has asked us to shake it up, mix it up, relocate, reevaluate and lean upon HIM!
We are excited about what God is doing and our prayer is that you would be to. Join us for and adventure of a lifetime as we watch God unveil His plan for Candlewood.
