Go and make disciples of all nations...
AWAKEN is a response to the final command of Jesus; to take the Gospel into the whole world ... beginning with our community.
Continually focusing on the next generation of Christ followers, AWAKEN facilitates the planting of spiritual seeds; seeking a harvest of future disciples of our great Savior and King.
Communicating in the language of our culture, AWAKEN molds environments where people can meet with God; through breakout teaching sessions, speakers, worship, and celebration.
"One thing I do know.
I was blind but now I see."
According to the Barna Research Group, teenagers in Generation "Z" identify as atheists at nearly double the rate of Millenials. The contemporary church in America revisits a daunting task that it has not faced in a very long time. We are no longer a culturally dominant force. That means we must learn how to communicate with a society that no longer understands our insider lingo and may look on some of our ideas with a significant degree of skepticism.
We must do better.
The GOSPEL is POWER. Though we know it can make the blind see, we must never forget that without Christ we all are hopelessly without sight —
Paul reminds us:
How can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone speaking to them?
AWAKEN is about speaking the reality of God's redemption, purpose, and love into the lives of people right where we live in a way that not only makes sense to them, but also satisfies the deepest need of their souls - to see THE TRUTH.
"Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one. Doesn't he leave the ninety-nine and go after the one that is lost?"
We need your help to do this great work; going after the lost sheep! If you believe in the work AWAKEN is doing in this community, please consider partnering with us to help make it happen. We are always in need of financial partners to keep moving the ministry of AWAKEN forward. If you are unable to contribute material wealth, we also need many, many volunteers to help ensure our events are incredibly high-quality and God centered for the many guests and seekers who venture through the doors.
