FALL 2018

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving! We certainly are thankful for you and your prayers and support for this ministry.

We had a great Thanksgiving week – with four different events. Our newest event was caravanning 8 cars through South Los Angeles delivering 120 plates of food to the homeless living in the tent encampments. Many of the youth in our church have done this type of ministry before, but for many of the adults and children it was their first experience. Many commented on how their heart was broken and eyes were opened to the humanity of each person we briefly got to know.

Some of the graduates from our Evangel: School of Church Planting that Chad taught at in October. In our two Evangel Schools this year we had people from Canada, Hong Kong, Michigan, Skid Row (Los Angeles), Fresno, Ontario (California), Nigeria, Malawi, Tanzania, Huntington Park (California), Norwalk (California), Miami (Florida), San Jacinta (California) and many from Los Angeles. Chad is now coaching several of these pastors as they prepare to launch their new churches and ministries.

 Women’s Retreat / October 2018
 Fuente KIDS (our children’s ministry) volunteers
 Youth sharing testimonies after returning from their youth camp. Some of our students help lead worship and were part of the drama team.
 Round Table Discussion: A special time of sharing stories about race, privilege and immigration to bring greater understanding and humanity to different people’s perspectives. 
 Our “Media Ministry” has been growing as we train up more people to work with digital media, sound and running the slides for our services.
 One of our community groups studying the Bible together.
 Gospel Concert in the Park! We joined up with another church in the community. We were responsible for giving the message in Spanish. Unified we will be able to reach and impact more people and see greater change in the community!
Christmas Toys Needed

Are you able to help us with our Toy Store? This annual event gives families from our church and community the opportunity to come buy a gift or two at deeply discounted prices (up to 75% off). This makes getting a special gift for their children more attainable, but still allows for them to feel the ownership and dignity of choosing and buying the gift themselves. There is a real special feel as our church really makes the space festive and hospitable and a group from our church does all the follow-up afterwards to help make a deeper connection for these families.

We need 100+ toys and gifts for boys and girls from 2 years – 18 years old. You can send or drop off gifts, order them online and have them delivered directly to us or send money and we’ll do the shopping. Please have money or gifts to us by December 14th at the very latest.

If you are able to give towards this need please send your gift to either to us personally or through our church (note this is different than our normal support giving sent to World Impact):

3.      Dominican Republic Trip
Please pray for our trip to the Dominican Republic to support a missionary friend there. We have wanted to lead a youth group to the DR for a mission’s trip and this opportunity has opened up for us to go and “scout out the land” while helping minister in churches and community centers and translate for a group from a partner church. The majority of this trip is paid for, but we do need to raise $1,400 for our travel expenses. If you are able to give towards this need please send your gift to either to us personally or through our church (note this is different than our normal support giving sent to World Impact):

We are in an exciting time in the ministry...we have been on the front lines for the last 9 years and have seen God do amazing thing - the most exciting is the many lives and families transformed by Jesus. 

As our sphere of influence continues to expand beyond the streets in our community to other areas of Los Angeles, other surrounding cities and beyond we are growing in our ability to hand-off and empower others to “go” and take on greater ownership and responsibility of their ministry and church.

What God is doing…
  •         New small groups are popping up
  •         We are seeing an increase in first time guests in our church
  •         There is a greater interest in evangelism and church planting
  •         Vision and faith for a greater impact beyond our community is growing
  •         New ministries are being formed
  •         The church is working as a team
  •         The youth are getting more involved in the day to day activities and ministry of the church

There is so much to tell, but we’ll just share a bit of what happened this last week where we celebrated mother’s and the youth led the Sunday service.

Pampering Mom’s – Annual Mother’s Day Celebration
Over 30 women came out to be pampered with great food, special gifts, a photo booth, manicures and makeovers. Their children were cared for – making special Mother’s Day crafts, playing and having lunch on their own. Fabiola gave a moving message on motherhood bring both laughter and tears.
More than half of the women were invited guests. Many either came back for the Sunday service or have jumped into a small group meeting at the houses of one of the ladies who invited them.

Youth-Led Sunday Service
Amazing! Literally everything from creating the bulletin and being greeters to ushering and leading worship – even the cleaning of the building afterwards was led by the youth. We were all moved and encouraged by the powerful words given by the students. Instead of 1 message – we had 4 short messages, each on a different woman of the Bible. The service was really honoring to all the mother’s, but really powerful to see the youth using their gifts to bless the whole church. The time preparing for this service was invaluable because it gave us and the youth leaders innumerable opportunities to come alongside and really guide and work with each student in the area they were serving. We now have several new children’s ministry volunteers and 3 new people to help run the media.

Our oldest child, Rebecca is finishing up her 7th grade year and has some great news and an opportunity to share with you:

Hello, my name is Rebecca Wolyn and I am part of a leadership development program at my school and we are working on developing different areas of our leadership abilities. A couple of the things I am working on is growing in confidence and in speaking in front of others. Only 6 students from my school were selected to participate in this program. A really cool part of this program is that this summer I will be attending a trip to Washington DC. We will be flying to Washington DC and also visiting New York City and Philadelphia. While on this trip I will continue to be given tasks from planning to leading different parts of the trip to help develop me more as a leader. My hope is that I will then be able to help and lead others better. Me being a pastor’s daughter, I’ve always wanted to have an opportunity like this to be able to bring up my leadership skills and to become a leader at my church and school.

One thing you could do for me is to pray for me so that I can learn a lot of things in this program. You could also pray that I would be safe on my trip and that I’d be able to excel in what I do and become a better leader. I leave on Wednesday, June 20th and return on Thursday, June 28th.

My goal for this trip is to raise $525 and it would be more than amazing if you could help me reach my goal. I would truly love it if you could give anything. Can you help me out by supporting me with a gift that will help support me as I take this next step towards my goal of becoming a stronger leader?

Thank you! God bless.
