Over the next two months (December and January), we are asking all those who pray with our church to join us in two specific requests. We call it the 50-50 challenge, what that means is you commit to pray for these two specific requests at least 50 times over the next two months, or 25 times per month. I (Travis) have had the privilege of serving on some launch teams for books, ministries, missionary endeavors, etc… and one thing that all the leaders of these teams were challenged with is to have a big goal, cleverly labeled BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal). In keeping with that theme, here is the BHAG for Lakeview over the next two months:
December: Finances are always an issue in any organization, but this is especially true of a church start. Given what the monetary needs are to be able to launch by February 10th, we are asking for God to supply all that by the end of December. Here’s the first ’50′ — Will you join us in praying that God will provide $50,000 to Lakeview by 11:59 PM December 31st?
January: Jesus never intended the church to be primarily focused on money, and neither do we at Lakeview. Instead, Jesus focused on people, and that is our primary concern as well. Therefore, our BHAG for January is that God will supply 50 people who are committed to the launch team by January 31. Will you join us in praying for this 50 in January?
Thank you for your prayers!
