Joelle and I have been a part of our church, Reality LA, for 9+ years and have seen God do incredible work in the lives of people in Los Angeles. Our church has the privilege and joy to send our founding pastor, Tim Chaddick and his family to London to plant a church there, and part of that sending process is a prayer tour in London happening at the end of July. We are honored to be a part of the team that will go and learn more about the city, the people in it, to pray for God to do a new work in London. Our heart’s are also to encourage and refresh the Chaddicks, who moved there at the beginning of this year in preparation for this church plant.
We are aware that this trip could easily become 100 American kids running around London, but as team leads we want to strive to be intentional with each moment. If we desire to see positive change, it is not going to happen with our American theology and our liturgical rhythms. Rather, we want to engage in the culture and understand the needs of London and pray for the city informed by the reality of what is there. In this posture we know that God will begin to do a work we could never do by our strength.
