"The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty". Proverbs 21:5
The C32 Initiative is in high gear as we are proceeding through our plans of establishing 32 Life Giving/Propagating Churches on Sept. 17, 2017!!
Please pray for all of our planters as we begin vital resourcing seminars/trainings over the next 6 months. These trainings are designed to equip each planter and their team on:
  1. Ministry fundamentals of managing a Life Giving Church.
  2. Principles of fund raising and financial budgeting.
  3. Marketing and outreach strategies in the Urban Context.
  4. Life Management
  5. Planning and Implementation of Planting Strategies.

Dave and Catharine Danks C32 Planters Profile
Dave and Catharine Danks

Dave and Catharine have ministry to "the least of these" in their DNA.  They met at a homeless youth outreach in Minneapolis, MN.  Their first dates were shared with poverty stricken folks at the local community meal.  Their passion is seeing the broken, left out, and overlooked find hope and peace in Christ.  They have been married for 5 years and have a beautiful 5-year-old daughter named Lily.

Dave is a graduate of Messenger College and has served as an outreach leader, assistant youth pastor, and booking and promotions coordinator of a Christian music venue. Catharine is a graduate of YWAM's Discipleship Training School, and has toured with evangelist and song-writer Eddie James, and serves as consultant for the National Pregnancy Help-Line.   Together they served as Youth Pastors in Columbus, OH, where nearly 50% of their students were developmentally or behaviorally delayed.  

Dave, Catharine and Lily Danks Planting in Richmond, VA, through City Reach Network, the Danks have truly taken on City Reach's motto of "Reaching the ONE."  They seek to be a church that exists on the fringes and in the margins, acting as gatekeepers to the ones who are marginalized and far from God.  They will also be launching Hope Homes for youth who age out of the foster care system to help stop the homelessness, incarceration, and drug abuse that plague foster youth when they turn 18 and have no place to call home.   

Dave, Catharine, and Lily are so honored and excited to be a part of this historic and world changing event!  They are believing that the Lord will bless and multiply all the C32 Churches.
