One Generation

Dear Partners and Friends,

Psalms 145:4 states, “One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.” It is the heart of God that every generation praise His name! His word even tells us that if we will not praise Him ourselves, He will get the rocks to do it. God does not ask too much out of us in return for His great act of love. He only asked us to love Him as much as He loves us! In return for His great love, we praise His name.

As part of our loyalty to God for His great love, we praise Him ourselves and share with one generation to the next, the great love of God. C4C youth rally is one of those many ways that we reach out to generations. It is our job, as one generation, to share the wonderful works of God to the next generation so that we can praise God together with one voice. 

During the youth rally we see many generations sharing God and praising His name, just as the scripture states in Psalms 145:4: “One generation shall praise thy works to another.” It’s our heart to share God’s goodness, God’s love, God’s Mercy, and God’s Grace to the next generation. Our heart is to strengthen the next generation to walk in His power and His might, as they go throughout their days in school and the workforce. 

So, partners and friends, we ask for your help during this time. We would like to ask you to join us in prayer over the youth, leaders, parents, and pastors that attended this year’s C4C youth rally. Please pray with us that the lives of every youth that came to the rally this year will continue to be changed, never to be the same, all for the Glory of God. One generation shall praise His works to the next, bringing Glory to God!

I Got Free

Hello Champions!

We just finished our 19th annual C4C Youth Rally! What a great time in the Lord we all had! We all came expecting to receive from God, and I believe that we did. The Lord had laid on our hearts that people would receive what they came expecting to receive. If you came expecting to receive a miracle, you would. If you came expecting to receive an answer, you would. If you came expecting to make new friends and to have a good time, you would. God was willing to meet us wherever we were at just because He’s a good and loving God!

On the last night of the rally, the Holy Spirit spoke these words out over the whole group: “I got free at C4C!” We truly believe that no matter what people came with, they got free of it during their time with the Lord! Free from depression, free from anxiety, free from diseases, pain, and suffering - as the whole group kept declaring and decreeing it, by the power of the Holy Spirit, they were being set free!

In Psalms 118:5, the word states: “Out of my distress I called upon the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free and in a large place.” The Word tells us that we are never alone - that God is always with us. We are never alone! We have the Holy Spirit inside of us, and we are never alone because Jesus is always making intercession for us! So, when we call out in times of trouble, The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are there to answer us and set us free. Not only set us free, but bring us into a “large” amount of freedom. Praise God!  

In John 8:36 the word says, “So, if the son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” When the Lord sets you free, you are free in a “large place” - in a big way! If you were not part of the C4C Youth Rally and want to be set free, I have a word for you to declare over yourself, “I got free because of Thee (God).” Once you accepted Jesus as your savior, you were set free! Now, you just have to remind the enemy who you are in Christ and that you are set free from anything the enemy might try to put on you.

Champion Partners and Friends, we are set free because of Thee! Thank you, Lord, for blessing me! We pray for His peace and joy to be part of your life this week.

Complete in Him

Good evening, Partner and Friends!

Have you ever felt like you were going through life just to make it to the end of a goal? Just to complete a task? Trying to get to a place of some form of perfection? We all do this at some point in our lives. Whether it be in our careers, parenting, being the favorite friend, or employee - we have within us a longing to be something more than we feel we already are. Most people who are without Christ spend a lot of time looking for something that seems to be missing. They are longing for a completeness or wholeness in their lives. Even after we get saved, we may continue to look for that peace, completeness, and wholeness not knowing that all the while that the moment we accepted Jesus as our Savior, we become whole in all areas of our lives. We became complete.

Colossians 2:9-10 states, For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him who is the head of all principality and power. Praise God! See, in Jesus dwells every bit of power, every ounce of peace, every moment of victory; and in every stand that you will take, Jesus is the fullness you need to complete the stand! 

The Word of God tells us, “when you’ve done all to stand, stand.” But! You are not standing in your own self, your own merits, or your own rights. You are standing in the fullness of Christ - His merits and His rights! Standing on the fullness of His Word, Jesus died for you that you may be free and that you may be complete. But, completeness does not come from you doing a million things to reach this goal. Completeness, just as the word states, comes from IN HIM. In Colossians 2:10 the word says, and YOU are COMPLETE IN HIM!

The word complete means to have all the necessary and appropriate parts. To finish making or doing something and to bring it to a place of wholeness or perfection. When the Word of God tells us that we are complete in Him, we have all the necessary and appropriate parts found in Him! And in Him, we are complete - not in us, thank God - but in Him!

He completes everything in our lives; all we are required to do is believe that. Take it by faith and continue to look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith! We could also say it like this: continue to look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our completeness. It’s like this: when we accepted Jesus as our Savior, He gave us a gym bag full of all the equipment we would need to walk in this life upon the earth. Nothing is missing out of the gym bag. It’s a complete gym bag. We are complete IN HIM

So, this week I challenge you to set your mind on the fact that you are complete, finished, and perfected in Jesus. Stand your ground knowing that in every event that comes your way, you can declare that YOU are COMPLETE IN HIM!

Rally Prayer

Champions 4 Christ Partners and Friends,

I am sending you the exact letter that I am sending out to all the youth pastors and leaders that are bringing their youth to C4C Youth Rally 2019. Would you join us in prayer as the teenagers from all over the United States come together to worship God this upcoming week? Would you take the same principles that are written below and apply them to your life? The more you expect the goodness, grace, power, and love of God to operate in your life, the more it will. I challenge you to raise your expectancy over the things of God in your life, and wherever you go and whatever you do, expect God to move for you!

Hey C4C Leaders!

We are so excited about this year’s rally! This year will be our 19th C4C Youth Rally, and we are believing God for His presence, His power, and His mighty Spirit be so real and so present during this time together that our lives are changed. We will never be the same!

We have been praying and confessing these very things over each one of you, and we are asking you to join with us, before the rally starts, in raising your expectation to receive from God exactly what you need to receive from Him.

Expectation  // noun // a strong belief that something will happen.

Come expecting that every day of the rally something will happen to the Glory of God! Come expecting that His presence, His power, and His spirit that lives inside of you will rise to a place like never before. Expect that you will be changed all for the Glory of God, and you will go out and change the world around you.

Come with the strong belief that God has placed you at this year’s rally. You will hear from God concerning your life and situations that you may be dealing with. Come expecting breakthroughs in your life. Come expecting to walk in a stronger relationship with God. Come expecting His healing power to be present! Come expecting His peace, His salvation, and His wholeness be there!  

COME EXPECTING! And together our hearts will be joined in unity of expecting more!

Thank you, Partners, for joining us in prayer over this next generation of God’s army. Just as stated in the above letter, wherever you go and whatever you do, raise your expectancy for God to move in your life!
