Who's Your One


It Starts with One

 When you think of someone far from God, who’s the first person who comes  to mind? Is it a neighbor? Coworker? Parent? No matter who it is, God  can use you to reach them, and we’re here to help.

Make a Commitment

 Imagine the impact if every Christian had ONE person they prayed for and shared the gospel with. 

Who's Your ONE?

 Prayer is at the center of every great evangelistic movement, and every movement is made up of people.Continue to pray for the individual God has placed on your heart.


Who's the one God wants you to invite to Jesus?

Continue to carry them...in prayer...loving acts...and conversations.

Since Mother's Day is in a few weeks consider inviting them to church with you for Mother's Day.
