Steve Riggle is pastor at Grace Community Church in Houston. We became friends 30 years ago in the San Francisco Bay Area. Steve moved to Houston to start Grace. God brought Mercy and I here a decade later and we reconnected with Steve and Becky.
I've learned something about Steve in those 30 years. He believes in prayer. His church has a culture of prayer. Steve told his congregation recently, "There are times when we need to show up and this is a showing up time.
" He was referring to The Response. They've set a goal - to mobilize 5,000 members of their church family to attend The Response. They're well on their way. 2,100 have signed up already.
How about you? Have you registered? Have you set a goal to mobilize
a team to join you at The Response? Some churches and networks outside of Houston are planning caravans.
Reliant Stadium has 70,000 seats. Won't it be great if it isn't big enough! I've seen that happen overseas. Potential overflow venues are being secured. For others unable to come to Houston, The Response is planning Live Simulcast and Streaming. I hope you don't miss this.
