Let’s blast off into May!

Wow! Promisors across all our locations have moved from the cubicle of comparison into the corner office of contentment and hundreds committed to take their next step on the Generosity journey and Get In on Generosity! Way to Live Like a Boss, Promisors!

This last month also saw milestone attendance at our God Behind Bars Morgan County Campus, as 200 men worshipped in community and witnessed 21 of their friends Get In the Waters of baptism. If these men can share, invite, follow Jesus and lead others to do the same, SO CAN YOU!

Now, more than ever we must Get In and Get On God’s new rivers and new roads and Get In the Weekend. With summer approaching, make gathering together in biblical community every weekend a priority on your calendar and Put God First.

This is exactly why we are rocketing off in Launchpad all month long, on a flight plan that will ignite and transform our homes and the next generation with liftoff love, language, leadership, and legacy. If you missed last weekend, go back, catch up, and be sure to buckle in for every weekend throughout May at one of our locations, our Online Campus, or our weekly Facebook Live!

Exciting news! This weekend, Michele Stephens, will be sharing a Word from God as part of a must-see Mother’s Day experience. So, do whatever you can to make sure that you, every member of your family, and every mother you know is at a Faith Promise campus.

Finally, beginning June 2nd, we are improving Saturday nights at the Pellissippi Campus, by adjusting experience start times to 5:00pm and 6:15pm. This will give better options to help more people with real problems find real love.

No matter what your next step is – take it today! Let’s keep getting in and getting on God’s new rivers of provision and roads of vision this year!

Love you, and see you this weekend!

April Update from Pastor Chris

Way to go Promisors!

God is definitely doing something new in the life of Faith Promise. As March ended and April began, we experienced one of the best Easter weekends in our history with with over 17,000 people across all our campuses, leading to 163 baptisms (and still counting), and untold more lives affected in ways we will see for years to come.

We continue to see more and more people Get In Groups, with over five hundred Promisors connecting (some for the first time) in groups throughout the first quarter of 2018. Thank you for your courage and obedience to experience God’s new rivers of provision and new roads of vision in following Jesus and leading others to do the same.

Last weekend we began Like a Boss – accepting God’s promotion to move to the corner office of contentment in our finances and every other area of our lives together. Because at Faith Promise, We put God first and give generously.

And because of our commitments in January to Get In on Generosity, we will encourage everyone in two weekends to take their next step in generosity by trusting God in whole new way. So, make sure to Get In the Weekend and be here for the final weekend of Like a Boss.

Finally, thanks to your faithfulness and generosity, Faith Promise finalized the purchase of our North Knox Campus facilities and property and now are positioned to help real people with real problems find real love in one of the most densely populated areas in all of Knoxville.

No matter what’s your next step – you can do it! I pray for and believe in every Promisor. Let’s keep getting in and getting on His new rivers of provision and roads of vision this year!

Love you, and see you this weekend!

Our New Series, 500 Reasons, Begins This Weekend!

Wow Promisors,

What an incredible month February was in the life of Faith Promise! We kicked it off with another incredible Sunday Showdown! Then, we launched into This Is Group and started 83 new groups and connected 712 new people into community. We grow together and are getting in and getting on God’s New Rivers and New Roads.

Don’t miss out on something new God is doing in our disciple-making communities.

The world is not getting darker, believers are getting dimmer. But we refuse to dim! And fpStudents led the way in flipping the switch in Fusion 2018 – with over 1,000 students and leaders becoming brighter lights, resulting in 40 baptisms already.

And somehow, March is looking even brighter, as we move into an entire month of preparation for Easter at Faith Promise. Throughout this month, we will challenge Promisors with 500 Reasons to Get Others In and invite everyone they know or meet to join them for Easter weekend. I am praying for 20,000 people, 500 baptisms THAT weekend, and for God to continue doing something new in the lives of every Promisor.

Remember that whatever we face as a church, our first and only response is to love and serve and help real people with real problems find the real love of Jesus Christ.

Finally, let me challenge you to take your next step this month:

Get In the Water and acknowledge God publicly in baptism,

Get In the Word and begin a devotional time with the Lord in the Bible,

Get In the Weekend and begin making Faith Promise weekends a priority,

Get In A Group and join the disciple-making community,

Get In a Ministry and begin using your gifts to serve others,

Get In on Generosity and begin giving, tithing, or preparing for Heart for the

Harvest this fall,

or Get Others In by bringing people to Easter at Faith Promise.

No matter what’s your next step – you can do it! I pray for and believe in every Promisor. Let’s keep getting in and getting on His new rivers of provision and roads of vision this year!

Love you and see you this weekend!

Sunday Showdown This Weekend!

Hey Promisors,

This year is already off to one of the fastest starts in Faith Promise’s history!
This month we launched a new microsite location at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee, and during the last two weekends over fifty college students packed out the small chapel, encountering God in worship and His Word.

God is moving, will you be aware of it?!

The results are in, and the answer was overwhelming from the Core across all our campuses. Promisors resoundingly supported the purchase of the North Knoxville Campus facility and property, which we will purchase in cash following the Leadership Team’s examination and authorization of the property. This will allow us to reach more people with real problems and help them find real love.

Also, God’s New Rivers and New Roads continue with our first showcase weekend of 2018, Sunday Showdown: Battle of the Pastors II. You may remember this incredible weekend from last year, when Pastor Zac Stephens and I battled it out on Super Sunday. This year, let’s Get Others In and invite the people we committed to bring this year.

Finally, in two weekends we will kick off an incredible season of growth with
This is Group! Throughout February, we will share stories from my group and other groups and challenge every Promisor to Get In Groups and see something new in their journey. Do not miss all that God will do this month!

Let’s continue to get in and get on His new rivers of provision and roads of vision this year!

Love you, and see you this weekend!
