Cheek’s Challenge
Throughout history powerful secret weapons have made the difference in military campaigns and brought defeat to the enemy and victory in battle. For over 30 years now, our Association of Churches has had a secret  that has allowed us to expand the Kingdom of God and to push back the enemy!

What is our “secret weapon"? It is our New Work Foundation! Quietly guided by faithful Trustees from our churches and led by Dr. Bobby Gilstrap, Executive Director,  our secret weapon has been our New Work Foundation which is “resourcing churches for healthy beginnings”

"What difference has the Foundation made?"
Five out of our Association’s top 11 giving churches were church plants resourced by the New Work Foundation. 8 of the 12 churches leading in baptisms, were church plants! 


Here’s the bottom line: Our Association of churches would be in decline or maybe not exist, if it weren’t for the work of this Foundation!
The driving force of this “secret weapon” is people and churches like yours that sacrificially give to the New Work Foundation.
Our Foundation’s Annual Banquet on Thursday, March 26 is a time to celebrate our victories and challenge us to give. You don’t want to miss it! Register today and come prepared to celebrate King Jesus and give for His glory and honor!

I look forward to seeing you there!
