As some of you know, we took the two multisite campuses that we started and have officially launched them as new churches! That transition is official and complete as of January 1st, 2013. Here is a letter from a proud and grateful pastor to those 2 churches.:
River City New Braunfels and Northwest,
Well, the transition is complete and you guys are launched as 2 new Christian fellowships! I just want to write you a brief note to say how proud I am of you and how much I enjoyed being your pastor. I am so grateful and excited to see the good fruit that God has produced in you during our time together.
When that small group of people started meeting in our home and decided to call ourselves River City Community Church, we hoped to grow and one day launch other fellowships. It is amazing to see that come to fruition. I'm not sure we understood the size vision that God had for us. I'm still not sure we understand how big God's vision is for River City!
I pray for you as you take off on the next leg of the journey. I pray for your new pastors as they give leadership to what God intends to do in and through you. I encourage you to support them and pray for them. They carry a great weight of responsibility and your support will mean a lot.
One of the things that River City Community Church was founded on is a stubborn faith in a Big God! Don't ever leave that legacy behind. Don't let fear keep you from following Him, no matter where He leads. Remember, obedience is where the power of God is released!
Thank you for letting me lead you as we started these works in our region. Please know what a joy it has been. I look forward to our new relationship as churches partnering together for the Kingdom. If I, or the staff of River City Community Church, can do anything to help you, please let us know. We are family and I look forward to our fellowship together.
I pray that the Lord gives you great fruit as you continue to call people to follow, connect, grow, serve, share!
Reaching for real life,
