BUILDING GOD’S KINGDOM
BY PLANTING CHURCHES IN COLOMBIA
At our recent Momentum 18 Fall Conferences we were both exhorted and challenged to look beyond our own ministries and be more intentional about building God’s Kingdom. It is time to be practical and turn our good intentions into action.
Since 2016, churches in our PSW District have been involved planting churches in areas affected by extreme poverty near the northern coast of Colombia (South America). We have been making a difference in Colombia by planting four thriving Foursquare Churches in partnership with Foursquare Colombia, Foursquare Missions International, and Compassion International.
This year we hope to give the opportunity to all the PSW District churches to plant a new church in Cúcuta, Colombia. This city is the main point of entry from Venezuela. Some reports indicate that in the last 18 months one million refugees from Venezuela live in migrant shelters in Cúcuta under very precarious living conditions. Thousands of children are roaming on the streets. To read more about this situation, check this article:
We believe planting a new Foursquare church in partnership with Compassion International in this area is ideal. For that reason, we are inviting all our churches to participate in this endeavor by donating to our PSW Colombia Church Plant initiative. Our goal is to raise $77,000 by December 7th. With these funds we will build a church facility for Foursquare in Colombia that will become a lighthouse in the community serving at least 200 children through the Compassion project.

We are encouraging churches and church councils to prayerfully participate. We will give weekly updates to our churches until the goal is achieved. Please designate your donations by writing in the check memo line, “Colombia Church Plant.” Mail your donations to:

Very important: This is not mandatory and no one should feel neither pressured to give nor guilty for not participating. Giving should always be cheerful and if this initiative is not for your church, there are many other wonderful opportunities to invest in God’s kingdom. We still want to encourage you to think beyond your own needs.
