Unknown Jesus

It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation. – Romans 15:20

  1. Look Around.
  2. Where is Christ not known?
  3. Where do people not have access to the Gospel?
  4. Ask the Lord to send workers into the harvest.
  5. Ask the Lord what role he wants you to play.
  6. Do what Jesus tells you to do.

Our desire at Connect Missions is to take the Gospel where it is not known and lead others to take the Gospel where it is not known. Do you need help? Send us an email. We would love to help.

Monday Prayer

My Lord, I know not what I ought to ask of Thee. Thou and Thou alone knowest my needs. Thou lovest me more than I am able to love Thee.

O Father, grant unto me, Thy servant, all which I cannot ask.

For a cross I dare not ask, nor for consolation; I dare only to stand in Thy presence. My heart is open to Thee. Thou seest my needs of which I myself am unaware.

Behold and lift me up! In Thy presence I stand, awed and silenced by Thy will and Thy judgments, into which my mind cannot penetrate. To Thee I offer myself as a sacrifice. No other desire is mine but to fulfill Thy will.

Teach me how to pray. Do Thyself pray within me. Amen.

~ Prayer of of Philaret, Metropolitan of Moscow

Crescent City Cafe is 6 Years Old!

cafe_logoIn February 2009, I showed up with some college students to serve the homeless, for a “one time” restaurant-style breakfast. The leaders had enough money to do it a second time, then a third time…and Crescent City Cafe was born.

It was nearly four years later before I would serve at the Cafe again. In those early years, as the fiscal agent, Connect Missions performed a service but provided no leadership. The founding volunteer leadership created a well-oiled service machine. They built relationships with Guests and Volunteers. Crescent City Cafe flourished.

In 2013, Crescent City Cafe came under Connect Missions officially. It was really awesome to get to serve as the Director for a year and a half, taking the Cafe to twice a month and helping transition in new leaders.

As of January, Connect Missions is again serving as the fiscal agent of Crescent City Cafe. It is Volunteer led again and soon will be its own nonprofit! Please be in prayer as the Cafe continues to grow.
