This past Advent (Christmas) season Rock Hill raised over $37,000 through Advent Conspiracy. Advent Conspiracy is an opportunity to celebrate Christmas by Worshipping Fully, Spending Less, Giving More, and Loving All. Each year we dedicate 100% of the funds raised to different projects locally and globally that will bless our city and the nations.

For Advent Conspiracy this past year, we designated $12,000 of the funds raised to seeing the book The Gospel As Center translated into the Oryia language to equip pastors and church leaders in one of the most hostile regions in India. We partnered with The Gospel Coalition International Outreach, an organization that seeks to bring Theological Famine Relief  to the global church. (You can read more about the project here.)

A few weeks ago,we had the privilege of hosting the translator of the book! Pastor Paul joined us on Sunday, June 8th to dedicate the completed translation to the people of Rock Hill Community Church. We heard of Pastor Paul’s Gospel work of journeying into tribal villages in the mountains of India to share the love of Jesus to communities who have never heard of Jesus!

Please join with us to pray that as this resource is put into the hands of many faithful pastors and leaders in India it will better equip  these pastors and leaders to faithfully and accurately proclaim the Gospel of Jesus to those who have never heard. Please pray for Pastor Paul and the local churches in India as they seek to plant more churches, train more leaders, and see the Gospel transform the lives of many who have never heard!  Please pray thanking God for His promise that, “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14).
