My Dreams for 2016
by Dennis Jaeger
Joy fills my heart when I think of all the people God has brought together to make the Impact Houston Church of Christ what it is. Impact and its ministries are entirely dependent on God and the servant-hearted people He brings our way. The transformation of lives we have seen in 2015 would not have happened without them.
I look forward to seeing who God brings our way in 2016, and hope to see him continue to work through Impact in many ways, including (but certainly not limited to): A “New Beginnings” class that utilizes mentors/disciplers to fully incorporate our new believers into the life of the church body; continued success and growth with our young adult small group; another great summer that introduces Jesus to more than a thousand young people from the Houston area and many other cities; a successful transition for every child/youth who transitions to a new age group (traditionally the hardest times for us to hang on to the young people we so dearly love); continued emphasis on outreach to different low-income apartments and other off-campus Bible studies; at least a 20% increase in the number of children who have a dedicated mentor; continuing improvements to our website, specifically adding a proponent that accurately represents the bilingual nature of our church; a brand new event for our elementary-aged children – a “Spring Fling,” hosted by the Spring Creek Church of Christ; inspiring, life-giving, dynamic, biblical, and practical preaching and God-honoring worship services; and a relationship with Arms of Hope that continues to grow in its ability to serve families in multiple ways.
May God continue to transform lives through his believers who meet at the corner of Weber and Colorado in 2016 and may we continue to be faithful to Him as we proclaim the tremendous love of Jesus Christ to our corner of the world in Houston, TX. Join us in this endeavor and help us #DoubleOurImpact in 2016!
