ShareHim Food Pantry, Homosassa, Florida

The Homosassa Florida, Seventh-day Adventist church recently completed a successful evangelistic campaign titled,”Hope for Tomorrow” using ShareHim sermon material and visuals. Earlier in the year a men’s group started a discussion on how to reach the local community. A number of ideas where considered and several were tried before arriving at the idea of opening a local food pantry. The church board approved the idea, and the pantry started operating two Tuesday afternoons a month. Through the “food Pantry” the church was getting to know their neighbors and making friends in the community. At the same time, an aggressive campaign was started, through newspaper advertising, offering a “Bible Correspondence Course”. The ShareHim sermons, visuals and program ideas helped bring this church family together and delivered a highly successful campaign to the community.

Central Florida House Church Leaders are Hosting a Free Conference on August 12th and 13th in Deltona, Florida



Deltona, FL (PRWEB) July 29, 2006

Central Florida house church leaders are hosting a free conference on August 12th and 13th in Deltona Florida, featuring the teaching of Tony and Felicity Dale. Tony and Felicity lead a ministry, based in Austin Texas, known as House 2 House. Their burden is to help Christians understand the freedom and simplicity of relationship in Christ as expressed through simple, rapidly growing, church planting movements.

New research from The Barna Group discusses how that millions of adults are trying out new forms of spiritual community and worship, with many abandoning traditional organized forms of worship for the simple house church fellowship.

Because of this Central Florida house church leaders are sponsoring the 2006 Central Florida House Church Conference in Deltona Florida on August 12th and 13th.

House church leaders have invited Tony and Felicity Dale, who lead a ministry based in Austin Texas, known as House2House, to be the conference’s keynote speakers. Tony and Felicity have a burden to help Christians everywhere understand and implement churches within their own homes and neighborhoods.

The conference theme, “An Army of Ordinary People”, was borrowed from the Dale’s latest publication which depicts, “real stories of ordinary people advancing God’s kingdom.”

Conference details are available on the internet at 2006 Central Florida House Church Conference website or by contacting Hans DeMildt at the Right Way Christian Book Store, Monday through Saturday, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. (EST), at 386-775-4212.

South Florida Church Finds New Home

Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) June 24, 2005

Nine months after Hurricane Frances and Hurricane Jeanne wrecked havoc and destruction on Florida, one of its victims has found a new home. Covenant Centre International – a respected global leader in the faith-based movement – has executed a lease-option to purchase a vacant church building located in South Florida.

“We trusted that God would make a way for us to have a new home,” says Norman D. Benz, Lead Pastor of the 450-member congregation “and He has. Covenant’s new home is 9153 Roan Lane, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The church’s first service in the new building is scheduled for Sunday, July 10.

Benz, who is now in his 40th year of ministry says, “I have never personally been through anything like what we as a congregation have been through these past nine months. The hurricanes proved that the church is not a building, the church is a people.”

On September 5, 2004, Hurricane Frances destroyed the building that Covenant Centre International had been occupying since 1995. The single storey former warehouse located in Palm Beach Gardens was practically destroyed by the Category 1 storm. What Frances did not demolish, Hurricane Jeanne annihilated three weeks later.

Although its home base was destroyed, Covenant Centre International did not stop supporting and overseeing its worldwide network of more than 100 ministers, 37 ministries and 27 churches. Covenant, which has been serving the South Florida community for 13 years, heeded the call to continue following God.

Covenant Centre International has been meeting at 3960 RCA Blvd, Suite 6003 while permanent facilities were being arranged. The last service at this facility is scheduled for Sunday, July 3.

Says Benz, “the hand of the Lord is so evident among us. His presence is resident with power. His Word declares over us life, destiny, and abundance.”
