The first step in the process was to find a Campus Pastor who understands the needs in this community. Todd, Heather and their children, Jenna, Kyle & Ella, have joined us from Ashkum, IL. We are excited to welcome Todd Mikelson as our Roane County Campus Pastor!Join The Roane County Group On The City
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him, He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrew 12:1-2
As many of you know, years ago Two Rivers Church started praying fervently about how they could extend their reach into Roane County. We/I believe that God is fulfilling His plans as we are obedient and begin taking the steps to launch this campus in 2017. Our desire for Two Rivers Church to be in Roane County – where our continued mission is to develop a caring community where Word and Spirit meet life – is coming to fruition.
Our leadership continues to pray through a timeline leading to a launch in 2017. It is critical that Heather and I intentionally immerse our family in all things Two Rivers Church as we seek to multiply the culture in to Roane County. This takes time.
So what’s next?
Pray for leadership as we determine the right timing for a launch next year.
Pray for my family and myself over this next season as we transition, get settled and start building relationships with you, as well as folks in this community.
Pray for your family members, neighbors, co-workers, teammates…all the people you cross paths with and live life alongside.
If they don’t attend a church, invite them with you to the 2RC Knoxville Campus. As much as you love it there, allow them grow to love this community of believers.
Encourage those that you’ve invited with the fact that in 2017 God is bringing a 2RC Roane County Campus to their area.
Pray for the people of Roane County, that God would right now be preparing their hearts for a new thing within the community.
We’ll be gathering as a Roane County Campus for prayer in the season to come. Similar to your previous gatherings, but my family and I get to join you! Check out the dates below for all Roane County events, including these gatherings.
Heather and I are excited to be a part of this community. It’s going to take some time for us to get to know the church and you all, and Roane County. We are excited that we get to become a part of the 2RC Knoxville Campus before we launch, this will help us feel as though we are part of the “send to Roane County.” We are grateful that we will not be doing this alone. God is assembling whom He desires for this launch, and we will be doing it arm and arm with you.
“Then I will purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them (Roane County residents) may call on the name of the Lord and serve him shoulder to shoulder.” Zephaniah 3:9 (NIV…with an add-on from me in bold)
Thank you for all that you are currently doing and what you will do to further God’s Kingdom in Roane County!
