Church-Planting: Chris Old & Awaken Church

The book of Acts ends with Paul talking about Jesus while under house arrest. What a compelling picture of his relentless pursuit to serve Jesus. It is a perfect bookend to a book beginning with a prophecy on how the gospel will spread to the whole world. How can we continue the book of Acts today? A significant part of Linworth’s strategy is to plant churches in spiritually needy communities where the gospel can be lived and proclaimed. To help us envision our future, we are reaching into our past. Chris Old, who led a church plant from Linworth in 2010, is returning to tell the story of Awaken Church. Joining him is a member of the church planting team and a young woman recently introduced to Awaken. Each perspective will help us appreciate how God grows His Kingdom and us through bold steps of faith.
