A NEW Chapter for the Switzer Family is about to begin. God has been burdening our family for the past few years about planting a church. My wife, Pam, and I have been praying about this together, seeking wisdom from others, and searching out exactly where God wants us to go.
We have really gone back and forth with God, making sure that we were following HIS WILL and not ours. This past summer after spending a few days fasting and praying, we knew for sure where God wanted us to go plant a church. God is calling us to Monticello, NY.
I have to be honest, Monticello wasn’t the first on my list of cities/towns that I wanted to go to. It’s a nice town, but it’s small and in a rural area. I was thinking God wanted us to go someplace BIG like New York City, Boston, or even Montreal. But I have found out that was more me than God. In fact, we felt that God was calling us to the Monticello area a few years ago, but never really followed through with anything. So, here we are, fully surrendering ourselves to God and His calling for our lives.
We are excited, but very nervous. This is scary, this is different, but I can’t wait to see how God SHOWS up as we totally TRUST HIM through all of this!
Please keep us in your prayers! We are now in the process of developing a launch team, raising support, and learning the in’s and out’s of Church Planting!!
So I guess we can official announce that “Restoration Church” is coming to Monticello, New York in the Fall of 2014!
btw – if think God is leading you to help out with a Church Plant and would be interested in being a part of our initial Launch Team, Pray about it and then let me know!
