I’m sitting in a coffee shop about 35 minutes north of central Austin. I’m surrounded by people that live here, work here, and call Austin, Texas, home. These people are the reason I’m here. Two months ago you might have found me sitting in a coffee shop about 35 minutes east of Phoenix, Arizona. I loved the people in Phoenix and especially the members of my home church, Sovereign Grace Church of Gilbert, AZ. But our church felt that God was calling us to look outside the borders of our community and answer the New Testament call to plant churches. So over the last few months a team of 22 people from Arizona have moved away from their familiar surroundings, their offices, homes, neighbors, and church to come to this new city. We have also been joined by a number of people here in the city that have heard of our church plant and are excited about participating with us to found this new church. Because of God’s work in all of these team members, Redemption Hill Church is about to begin. By the grace of God, in just a few months, we’ll have our launch Sunday on September 15th, at 123. E Old Settlers Road, in Round Rock. We are praying that people in our area, perhaps even some of the people sitting in this coffee shop now, will become friends and that some of them will join the church. We are praying that God will lead us to our new neighbors that do not know the gospel, but would be willing to hear our testimony about the Lord Jesus Christ. May the Lord give us boldness, kindness, and opportunities. It’s good to be here.
