At Pinnacle we believe in reaching out across the street and around the world. As Jesus told his disciples in Acts 1:8 we want to be his witnesses in our own community and beyond. We believe that the most effective way to reach people with the gospel message is to plant more churches where leaders can be effective in their own communities. We focus on not just addition growth in our own community but focus on exponential growth which happens when we plant churches that eventually go on to plant more churches and then we celebrate as we see God work in those churches to reach more people with the good news of Jesus Christ.
We have already begun to see this play out with the work of Mission City Church in Vermont. Pastor Tim Owens, his family, and other families from our church were sent out to take the gospel message to the people in Vermont. Mission City Church was launched in March of 2015. To date, they have seen over 200 people step from death into life by putting their faith in Jesus. They have seen over 100 people go public with their faith by participating in baptism. The Lord is moving and working in Vermont and we can’t wait to see what he continues to do there as they begin to seek to plant more churches as well. You can learn more about mission city church at mcity.church.
We are also in the beginning stages of supporting Crosspoint Church which will be led by Pastor Todd West. Pastor Todd has recently moved from their home in Georgia to Shelburne, Vermont just out side of Burlington. With hopes of launching Crosspoint Church by October of 2017, we plan to support Pastor Todd and his family by resourcing them with funds, people, prayer, and any other means available so that we can continue to reach more people with the gospel.
