Downtown Oklahoma City, South Oklahoma City, Shawnee, and Edmond.. These are places where we live, work, and raise our families. Places where we dream, hope, and pray that God would move in. These are the places, spheres, and cities God has sovereignly called us into mission. This missional movement invites us to unify, as one Church, to see God’s mission expand to reach Oklahoma, and beyond. Being part of a movement isn’t easy. It will require people from different places and backgrounds coming together, praying together, and giving together towards a common mission. Throughout history, we’ve witnessed God do profound movements using His Church. These movements never end in-and-of themselves, but lead to Gospel impact, periods of revivals, and the Spirit of God moving among generations. God chooses to use His people to start His movements.
The Missional Movement is about Frontline responding with faith to God calling our church to enter into a season of reaching wider and expanding deeper. Thank you for your profound generosity and bold prayers. A Missional Movement can’t be done without you, the people of God, being part of His mission.
PHASE ONE GOAL: $1,000,000
Phase One launches in February 2017. We will unify as one church and one body to support Gods mission in South OKC and Shawnee. We believe God has given us vision and opportunity to move forward immediately on the outright purchase of Shawnees building and what we need to bring to closing on a building for South OKC.
PHASE TWO GOAL: $3,000,000
Phase Two will launch after the completion of Phase One. We will step into a season of celebrating what God has done through the first phase and continue to press in to God’s mission for the Downtown and Edmond congregations. We believe God has given us immense opportunity with the current un-used Education Space attached to the Frontline Downtown building that needs renovations to better serve families and our community. The Edmond congregation is in a season of praying and searching for a permanent church home in the Edmond area where they can love God, love people, and push back darkness from in the future.
HOW YOU CAN ENGAGE
“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” -Colossians 4:2
We believe that this Missional Movement will lead to gospel renewal in each congregations cities and communities. Will you join us in praying to that end? One of the most important steps in multiplying gospel communities as a disciple-making disciple is to identify your core three people. These are three non-Christians within your sphere of influence for whom you will commit to pray and engage in intentional gospel relationships. Download and print off a prayer card, then write down the names of three people you are praying for and relationally engaging during the Missional Movement. Place the prayer card in a helpful place as a reminder to pray for your three.
“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” -Isaiah 6:8
We cannot accomplish a plan of long-term gospel renewal in Oklahoma without hundreds of Frontliners – as well as many outside of Frontline – personally committing to it. We need you. We can’t just build a bigger institution; we need a people-driven movement of Oklahomans in every neighborhood commissioned to be on mission, and live out the gospel where God has put them.
“But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.” -Jeremiah 29:7
Generosity is more than a number; it’s a posture of the heart. Pray about how God wants you to steward what he has entrusted to you. We believe this is a defining time for the Frontline family to give generously with joy and purpose so that our cities might prosper.
Commitment cards will be handed out on Sunday services in February or you can download and print off a card here. Please complete and bring them with you to worship services on March 26th or commit online by clicking the button below.
