Converge Cornerstone Fund is pleased to be a ministry partner in connection with The Gate Church. We recently received a video that allowed us to hear from Pastor Gary Mariano regarding the success of his church plant in North Lima, Ohi
In 2009, pastor Brad and Jeni Main started to sense the call of God to start a church in Merrill, Wisconsin. After much prayer, confirmation, raising support and finding partners with the same vision, Journey Church held its public launch Sunday, September 11, 2011, the church began to grow in numbers and spiritual maturity. Here is their story:
Have you ever been to a church where you could just feel God’s presence? On Sunday January 1, 2015 I walked into CrossWind Community Church in Aurora, CO and could feel that God’s work was being accomplished in this church. Rev. Ric Doguiles is the pastor of CrossWind and has been focusing on reaching the community. Pastor Ric is a great leader who has a vision to reach many people with the Gospel of Christ.
I enjoy when a church is fully committed to reaching its surrounding community. On December 14th I travelled to a very urban setting as Pastor Kenny Ruiz invited him to preach at the Urban Rock Church at the YMCA in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. The multi-ethnic congregation is very friendly and full of energy. It was a great experience to see the people lift their hearts in worship on this weekend.
