Exceedingly – Abundantly

Green Mountain

Green Hill Community Church

“Now unto Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,”  Ephesians 3:20 NKJ.  That scripture came to mind on March 14, 2014, as David Spencer and I stood in the County Court Clerk’s Office in Harlan, Kentucky. We were there to record the deed for the Green Hill Community Church. In a rapidly moving sequence of events, our Church Planting Ministry in Eastern Kentucky had added another church. Through contacts that David had established earlier, a request came to us to assume responsibility and spiritual leadership for the Green Hill Church at the foot of Pine Mountain in Harlan County.

It is amazing that in an area where many, if not most, have preached the funeral of Church Planting, Church Growth, and Revival in Eastern Kentucky, the Lord is breathing life into a sleeping giant. Malaga Community Church in Wolfe County, Faith Community Church in Harlan County, and now Green Hill Community Church have all become part of our church planting and revival vision. New Hope International is partnering with the Kentucky Mountain Holiness Association in the belief that ‘together we can’! We can see revival sweep through the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. We also believe that the fire of God-sent revival in the mountains can move across borders and boundaries like it did in the early days of the New Testament Church.

A recent survey has revealed that approximately 670, 000 precious souls in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky are ‘unchurched’. We are on the move to remedy that situation. Ridge Chapel in Lee County opened a little less than two years ago, and now in a matter of seven or eight months three other churches have been activated in the cause of winning the lost and building Christ’s church. Each time a new church has opened with us, God has provided for ministry. New people have felt the ‘call’ and joined in to help us fill the pulpits. We are mentoring and teaching and these new folks are growing rapidly and assuming responsibility.

Rejoice with us! On April 6, we will have our ‘official’ Opening Day at Green Hill Community Church. Join with us in person if possible. If not, please pray and any financial help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
