Dear Missions Community,
It is such an honor to be writing you, just one month after taking the leadership of PCPC’s Missions efforts. I am humbled because I have been so encouraged to hear how God has used PCPC to lead people to Christ, to be integral in serving the city of Dallas, and to be involved in missionary sending and church planting all over the world. Learning about what God has done over the years at PCPC has been like drinking from a fire hose, but one which I am so grateful and encouraged. As I lead us in missions into this next chapter of what God has for us, I do so standing on the unshakeable foundation of Christ and with the confidence that what God has already been doing at PCPC for the past 30 years He will continue to do it, if maybe even in some fresh new ways, for the next 30 years and beyond.
I am so excited that PCPC will be focusing on prayer as a theme over the next season. In worship, we will allow God to speak to us through a focus on The Lord’s Prayer, ministries have designed events around the theme of prayer, and we as a Missions Team will both continue in prayer and trust God for new prayer endeavors as well. As we are ramping up this season, we wanted to ask each of you to consider joining us in prayer. In our newsletter below, there is an opportunity for you to sign up to receive emails and event reminders about our different prayer initiatives in Missions. We would be so honored for you to join us.
God has brought Paul’s beautiful prayer for the Ephesian Church to mind as I was thinking on centering our Missions Team efforts in prayer:
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:14–19
As we seek to extend Christ to our neighbors, the city, and the world, being grounded in prayer, may we not forget that our first prayer should be to better understand God’s love for us. We should pray that we would know God’s love longer, higher, and deeper, through the act of joining Him on mission. Whatever God may be calling each of us to do – pray for a missionary, go overseas short-term or long-term, giving over and above, or speaking about God’s mission here in Dallas—may we do it as a response to His love for us.
Know that I am praying for you, our church, and that our Missions Team would be happy to pray for any specific request that you may have.
Warmly in Christ,
Sam Leopold
