The Unfolding Vision
In 2001, while living in Huntingdon England, God gave me a vision of starting a church called Rhema International Ministries. The vision began to unfold on February 16, 2003 when me, my wife and a few members officially started the ministry at the Holiday Inn in Albany, Georgia. Shortly after this, the Lord gave me a vision of purchasing land to build several buildings that would form a campus. In 2009 we constructed our current sanctuary located on 1715 W. Oakridge Dr.
In 2011, through the leading of the Lord, I preached message entitled, "Put a Date on It". The message was a prophetic word from God stating that in 2012 we would pay off the balance of the mortgage on our building and 22 acre lot. We owed approximately $300,000 at the beginning of 2012, but through the power of God and the faithfulness of our members and friends, we were able to pay off the mortgage on December 2, 2012. God continues to unveil His vision to me for His people. I am writing this letter to share with you what I believe to be a unique opportunity to participate in God's unfolding vision. We have created a method for you to continue to support this unfolding vision called Lifetime Vision Partners (LVP). It is a yearly contribution that will go to the building of the Rhema Campus. As a Lifetime Vision Partner, you are partnering with me and Rhema International Ministries by giving financial support as God unveils the phases of the vision. There will also be different levels of recognition awards given according to the level of your partnership. Because we are Debt Free, we believe that we don't have to be enslaved to financial institutions, but we can receive directly from those who believe in the ministry and build at the rate that we can afford.
Our current facility does not have adequate space needed for our nursery and children's ministry. At the rate of our growth, we just cannot accommodate more families with small children. Therefore, I have worked with an architect to develop plans to add an administrative wing in the rear of our church and to change the existing administrative offices into the new nursery. This way we could support three times as many infants and toddlers during our services.
Below is the form to start the process of becoming a Lifetime Vision Partner. For more information, you can contact the church at (229) 434-9673. May God's riches blessings continue to abound toward you!
