Destroy Your Church!

Well, we took the leap of faith. We destroyed NuComm. Last Sunday was our last weekly celebration service. Starting Sunday Feruary 5, 2006 we will be meeting all over Manila (Paranaque, Las Pinas, Cavite, Laguna, Muntinlupa, Quezon City) in the new network of about 20 simple churches. By this weekend we will have also added another group of about 80 people from Bulacan into the network as well.

My feelings are a mixture of faith in the face of fear. The unknown is before us. Where will this take us? I do not know. But I am confident that the Lord is in this and that we shall prevail. People think I am crazy for doing this. We shall prevail. People think that this is the end of NuComm. We shall prevail. Some have violently reacted against this move. But we shall prevail.

What we have seen so far outweighs these potential dangers. People are actually reading their Bibles and hearing God! The disconnected are being found and connected. Groups are already multiplying. Much excitement is in the hearts of most of our people.

"No one is a leader...and everyone is a leader." - it actually works! The Bible and the ministry are back in the hands of the people. Right where they belong.
