(www.jawilliamsproductions.com) LYRICS: I am a poor wayfaring stranger While traveling through, this world of woe. But there’s no sickness, toil or danger In that bright land, to which I go. I’m going there to see my father I’m going there no more to roam; I’m just a going over Jordan I’m just a going over home. I know dark clouds will gather round me I know my way is rough and steep; Yet beauteous fields lie just before me Where God’s redeemed, no more shall weep I’m going there to see my mother She said she’d meet me when I come; I’m just a going over Jordan I’m just a going over home. I’ll soon be free from earthly trials, my body sleep in the old church yard, I’ll drop the cross of self denial and enter in my great reward, I’m going, I’m going there to see my savior I’m going there no more to room, I’m just a going over jordan. I’m just a going over

America’s Largest A Cappella Church to Host Second-Annual Ministry Impact Conference

FORT WORTH, Texas (PRWEB) September 4, 2005

Following the success of last year’s Ministry Impact conference at Crossroads Christian Church in Grand Prairie, Texas, Provision Ministry Group has announced that “Ministry Impact ’05: GO” will be held at the Richland Hills Church of Christ in Fort Worth, October 26-28.

Over 300 Christian leaders attended Ministry Impact ’04, and as many as 500 ministers and elders are expected for this year’s event, which is being hosted by the largest a cappella church of Christ congregation in America.

Ministry Impact is the only conference of its kind, designed to train and inspire leaders from the independent Christian churches and a cappella churches of Christ. Other conferences have focused on the topic of unity between the two groups, which were formally separated in 1906, but Ministry Impact is not a “unity” event; it’s a united event. It is a one-of-a-kind, once-a-year opportunity for Christian church and church of Christ leaders to come together for ministry training.

Since 1906 believers from both streams of the Restoration Movement have written papers, preached sermons and hosted debates on the subject of unity between the churches of Christ and Christian churches. After nearly 100 years of talking about unity and praying about unity, Ministry Impact provides ministry leaders with an opportunity simply to be united. This year’s conference theme, “GO,” was inspired by Christ’s Great Commission in the gospel of Matthew.

Rick Atchley, senior minister at the Richland Hills Church of Christ, made his support for unity clear when he spoke at the 2003 North American Christian Convention – an event primarily attended by Christian Church members. There he told nearly 10,000 cheering attendees, “I plan to devote the second half of my life to seeing reconciliation among the a cappella and instrumental churches of Christ and Christian churches.”

Now Atchley and the church he serves are making good on his promise by preparing to welcome hundreds of Christians – both from a cappella churches like their own and churches from which they have long been estranged. By doing so, they hope to become more successful at fulfilling the commission that inspired this year’s conference: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
