This summer our family will move to Orlando, Florida to help start Harvest Community Church, Florida. We join thousands of families and professionals who are pouring into the Lake Nona area of South East Orlando from across the country and around the globe. The developments are filling in with all the amenities one could imagine, yet the most critical anchors for the community are missing: local churches. We believe that Jesus is the hope of the world. The question is, who will help those who don’t know Jesus yet meet him? This is the power of a vibrant local church.
We believe that God has invited us to join a team of others to help the people of this community hear the good news of Jesus. Our hope is to help our soon-to-be community follow Jesus into a life-changing mission. For that to happen, we need your support.
To get started we’re inviting you to pray and give to open the door for the gospel to spread and a new church to be birthed in this strategic community. We travel to Florida knowing that our first year will be dependant on the financial and spiritual support of a network of people who may never set foot in Orlando, but whose generosity will allow Harvest Florida to move from an opportunity to a reality.
Will you give financially?
If you can join our monthly support team.
- Your financial support over 12 months will allow me to focus full-time on building out our core team of volunteers and engaging with the community to prepare for the launch of services this fall. Our goal would be that the new church is fully self-sufficient by Easter of 2019. Our goal is to raise $5,000 in monthly support.
You can also give a one-time gift.
- Between now and May 31st we need to raise about $20,000 to cover initial expenses.
Giving is as easy as sending a text. To try it out, text “give” (without the quotes) to (321)985-5535. You will be asked to complete a one-time form, safely linking your card to your smartphone.
This new way of giving is not charged to your phone bill, and you can always refund a gift if you make a mistake. You will receive a text confirming your gift. From here on out, you will be able to give any time from anywhere by texting the amount plus the word “support” (example: $100 support).
You can give a one-time gift or set up recurring support simply and easily online as well. Enter an amount, choose “Hutchison Support”, and designate a one-time or recurring gift. Click here to get started.
Whether you’re able to give financially or not, we also know that we need your prayers! If you would like to stay informed and be praying for our family and the launch of Harvest, click here. I’ll send out weekly-ish updates along the way.
Thank you! Thank you for any way you support our family and the mission to start a vibrant church which we believe God will use to help hundreds of people meet, know and follow Jesus. Let’s go!
