EFC North Launch Set for March 10
Pray for EFC Newport as they begin services at a new campus (pictured above) on Saturday, March 10, 2018. Services will be held on Saturdays at 5pm to accommodate busy families. Over the past several months, facilities were secured, a team has been identified and trained, and their congregation has been preparing, praying, and giving to allow more people to have the opportunity to meet Jesus.
“We have been preparing many months for this launch,” said Pastor Paul Hoffman. “The excitement of having an EFC campus site located in northern Newport County is growing in the community. In today’s challenging world, people are looking for healthy connections. We are committed to growing a vibrant campus that welcomes people regardless of where they’ve been or how they got here.”
North Campus Director Paula Jestings noted, “The DNA of this campus site is rooted solidly in the mission, visions, and values of EFC Newport, our main church. We believe in seeing lives changed by following Jesus, loving people, and reaching our world. With a campus location in Portsmouth at 14 Potomac Road, we are excited for the opportunity to be a part of this community and to connect with people in the day-to-day of their lives.”
Additional staff members include Kayla Andreen of Portsmouth and Lorena McCabe of Newport. Kayla will serve as the Children’s Ministry Director. Lorena will serve as the Director of Worship overseeing worship operations for both EFC Newport and EFC North campus.
Please pray for Pastor Paul Hoffman and the launch team. Pray that God’s presence will be experienced at the North campus and that the Gospel is communicated with conviction and clarity through God’s Spirit.
