We are grateful for the PDC church planting ministry of Pacific Keep Church in Spokane, Wash., with a ministry to mostly young adults, many of whom have a Slavic/Russian heritage.
Recently, the leadership met for a retreat and sensed the Lord inviting them to ask and plan for a greater harvest. Church planting pastor Boris Borisov writes, "We intend to be more intentional about reaching the unchurched and de-churched in Spokane by cultivating rich and deep relationships within our cultural context. We've set a goal of reaching 120 unchurched people in Spokane in 2017. This doesn't necessarily mean all 120 will be Christians by the end of the year, but we want to have 120 new relationships – serving dinner, inviting people over and being available to serve and minister to others. To support these new friendships we also have launched three community groups that now meet regularly in addition to our Sunday gatherings. We've also seen growth at our new location downtown, and are grateful to be walking side-by-side people in Spokane. Recently we had our first child dedication service where we dedicated five new babies, including our daughter, Grace."
Please pray for Pacific Keep Church, that God would grant favor in the development of new relationships, that more community group leaders will be equipped and for the spiritual growth of new friends coming in that do not know Christ.
