Mike Jentes, a staff member with Church Multiplication Associates, the church-planting group based in Southern California, has issued a call to organic churches in Long Beach and Los Angeles County to gather and pray.
“One of the sayings/metaphors that has stuck with me in all my years walking in the organic church movement is ‘Aslan is on the move,’” he wrote recently to pastors in the region. “This obviously refers to our mighty Lord from C.S. Lewis’ Narnia series…and how He is still on the move in the places we are! Many of us are planted in Long Beach and L.A. County and seeking to hear, see and testify to how the Lord is on the move in our city and beyond.”
He’s asked churches in the area to gather for a time of prayer and sharing later this month.
“My sense is that the Lord is doing a lot in Long Beach,” he said, “but many saints are laboring without seeing a bigger picture.” He hopes this gathering will help many see other ministries in their community and will provide an opportunity for more relationships to form.
The meeting, which will include coffee and dessert, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Sunday, September 23, at the MCTV Church at 1965 E. 21st Street in Signal Hill (former offices of Church Multiplication Associates).
