Duane Boyett, Campus Pastor Queen Creek Campus.
This picture may not look like much now, but one day this vacant parcel of land will be home to Central’s Queen Creek Campus. All of the elements of the first church will take place on this site. We will have teaching & fellowship. We will share in the Lord’s Supper and yes, we will pray.It has been said that prayer is the fuel that provides motion to ministry. Prayer focuses our attention on God. It reminds us that we are not in charge and that we do not have all the answers. It causes us to shift our reliance from self, to the one who is self-reliant. When we pray, we provide peace for our lives. Philippians 4:6-7 reminds us of this truth.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I love how we are promised that this peace of God will guard our hearts and minds, the very part of us that is so vulnerable to anxiety, and worry and stress. Prayer can calm us in a way that nothing else can. Over the last few months people from our Queen Creek Campus have been prayer walking on our vacant property. If you look closely at the photo from this blog you will notice two people walking and praying together. We pray for our church leaders, for our ministries, and for resources. We pray for our community, we pray for those currently part of our campus and for the thousands of people who are moving into the 2000+ homes being built right behind our vacant land.
There are a million details that are yet to be accomplished before the Central Queen Creek Campus opens it’s doors. We know that our vision is clear, and our mission is true. One day we will gather in this new campus, hear from God’s word, fellowship, and break bread together. But until that day comes…
For Now, We Pray!
We invite you to join with us.
