Illuminate Church Plant in Tempe, Arizona
Tempe, AZ is a very unchurched and dark city in Arizona. That is where Josh Morgan and his wife Caley come to serve and do this church start, church plant. I got to know Joshua at my job. Getting to talk to him about the Lord and Church planting and more. I can see his zeal to reach the lost. The Morgan’s are moving from the East Coast to the West.
Illuminate Church is a church plant launching in Tempe, Arizona in 2018 whose mission is to share the light of Christ with those who are living in darkness. Right in the darkest part of Arizona, Tempe. They will be right there where Arizona State Univeristy (ASU) is. Which their mascot is Sparky the Sun Devil.
As the church first starts out, they more than likely will be meeting on the Arizona State University grounds in the Christian Student Services area or maybe another location.
I like these two paragraphs on the church website.
Have you ever tried walking through your house in the dark? You bump your shin on the coffee table, stump your toe on the wall, and step on your dog’s tail, while also waking up others in the house. It’s difficult to comprehend what it must have been like for most of human history, living without electricity and light inside the home. Many times we take that light for granted, but stop to imagine how much more difficult life would be without it. Crazy, right?
Spiritually, there are many people walking in darkness, bumping into everything, and wondering around this life while being blinded. The good news is that we have the Light! That light is Jesus and with Him, we don’t have to wander around in the darkness. Life with the Light is so much better than living in darkness, but the truth is, there are many who are walking around like it’s the 1700’s spiritually. This Light that we have, we want to share it with you and with all of those who have yet to have been exposed to the Light of Christ. Nobody should have to walk in darkness when Christ came to light up the earth.
Action Steps: Light
On the Illuminate Church website they have these action steps. It is like an acronym for the word light or an acrostic for light.
L – Love: We will act in love for God, people, and our city.
I – Identify: We will identify the lost and their needs.
G – Go: We will go into the dark areas where the lost people groups are.
H – Help: We want to help meet the needs of those who are lost and hurting.
T – Teach: We are commissioned by Christ to see people saved and to make new disciples. We prioritize teaching the ways of Jesus.
I hope you can join with me to pray for The Morgan’s, this church plant and the people of Tempe, AZ.
