Send North America is one of the most exciting initiatives to come along in my lifetime as a follower of Jesus Christ. Its goal is to motivate and connect established churches with church planters who are going into the underserved and unreached areas of North America. In particular, SNA has its sights set on the big cities where greater gospel witness is so desperately needed. God is growing the cities in America. He is also bringing the nations here to our doorstep. We have a propitious moment to impact our nation and the nations with the gospel, and we dare not let this moment pass. In the burgeoning metropolitan areas, many have few if any vibrant, evangelical churches bearing witness to the crucified Galilean. That must change. Some say we need hundreds of new churches. I believe we need thousands! This can only happen if we see this vast lostness as our God sees it.
At SEBTS, we recently hosted a SNA event, where David Platt said it so well. This mission will only happen if we sacrifice for Him, abide in Him and rest in Him. Our God is sufficient to provide everything we need to tackle this daunting task. Without Him we have no hope. With Him, we can accomplish anything. By His grace and for His glory, may we join hands with our great God in extending His Kingdom where the need is so great and the possibilities truly unlimited. This is a life worth living. This is a task worth giving our lives to.
I am excited to be involved in the forthcoming Send North America Conference 2015, which will be held August 3–4 at teh Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN. This will be a special 2 days, and I invite you to join me and others such as David Platt, Louie Giglio, and others as we consider how to reach North America and the nations with the gospel.
