FOCUS = 20/20 VISION
"Where there is no vision, the people perish..." Proverbs 29:18
"Write the vision and make it plain on tablets; that he may run who reads it. The vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come. It will not tarry." Habakkuk 2:2-3
The Vision of Rescue & Restore Church is to reach the hurting & lost for Jesus Christ, to see Jesus rescue them from their sins and then restore them to their rightful place in Him. The vision is to see disciples making disciples which will transform the community of Olyphant and beyond for the glory of Jesus. The continual fulfilling of this vision will change people's mindsets from living a life of a pauper to living a life as a King & Queen. It's a total change of mindset where they depend on God for their needs and not man/government, which will break the yoke of oppression and depression that exists in this area.
Part of the vision the Lord has given me will be a coffeehouse that will open to be a blessing to the community and hire people from the church to run it.
The Lord has shown me a thrift shop (Hope from Habits) that will open as an extension of the church to free those in the yoke of addiction as proceeds from the thrift store will finance their entry into a Christian-based recovery facility so they can become the mighty men and women of God He called them to be, and they will help to transform their communities for Jesus.
The Lord has shown me we will have a home (A Home of New Beginnings) for men who are released from prison that will assist them in getting back on their feet while feeding them God's Word.
Finally, He has shown me a home (Haven of Love) where unwed or possibly wed, pregnant moms can give birth to their child in the comfort and security of a loving home while sharing Christ's love with them.
