“This affordable property greatly enhances our ability to train and send missionaries to the 3 billion still unreached!”– David Sitton
Los Fresnos, Texas (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
What a start to the New Year! To Every Tribe in Los Fresnos, Texas has purchased land that will greatly expand its mission capability. Shortly before 2013 arrived, To Every Tribe was handed the keys to the facilities on 50 acres of strategic real estate at Chachalaca Bend. The purchase of the property is an historic transaction that poises To Every Tribe to propel hundreds of death-embracing missionaries to unreached people in hard-to-get-to places with the good news of Jesus.
In order to alleviate a classroom and living space problem on its current campus, To Every Tribe has purchased The Inn at Chachalaca Bend, a bed and breakfast getaway sitting on a 50-acre parcel just outside of Los Fresnos. To Every Tribe has raised more than $422,000 of the bargain $1.85 million purchase price for the buildings and 26 acres of undeveloped land.
3 billion have never heard about Jesus because there is no one to tell them. There are also many who desire to go and tell. Millenial missionaries want to risk everything for Jesus going to remote places with the gospel. These millenials are coming to Los Fresnos, Texas looking for church-planting adventure in record numbers.
David Sitton, founder and president of To Every Tribe, says the property purchase is a reflection of the mission organization’s passion to reach the unreached: “3 billion unreached with the gospel! How can we be ok with that? Chachalaca Bend is a significant step toward the solution. What a fantastic property for the price! This affordable property greatly enhances our ability to train and send missionaries to the 3 billion still unreached! God’s provision has been grand! The Lord is getting it done!”
The facilities on the Chachalaca Bend property include a lodge (with a conference room big enough for 50), a main house (with office space and a boardroom), a second three-bedroom house, three additional offices to the main house, two one-bedroom units, the inn (with 6 bedrooms, a dining area, a kitchen, and a meeting room), and 26 acres of vacant land (with a small pond and gazebo).
Such an opportunity requires an increased dependence on willing partners who catch the vision for Christ’s harvest and come alongside to partner with To Every Tribe. While a down payment has been made, another $78,000 must be raised soon in order to secure ownership of the entire property.
To Every Tribe needs sacrificial partners to help the mission keep up with the rapid expansion and growing interest. There are four kinds of ways to participate with To Every Tribe in the expansion of gospel proclamation to unreached people groups: as prayer martyrs who will dedicate themselves to the prayer that the Lord of the harvest will propel self-denying disciples to his harvest; as financial martyrs who will commit their resources to helping To Every Tribe alleviate its immediate space needs in securing this property; as service martyrs committing time and effort; and as missionary martyrs who are willing to be flung with the gospel to plant churches among the 3 billion who have never heard the good news of Jesus.
Steve Best, director of the Center for Pioneer Church Planting, is excited to see what God is already doing through Chachalaca Bend, “This property gives us many unique and expanded training opportunities that will extend our reach into the 3 billion who have no access to the gospel!”
Located in Los Fresnos, Texas just 12 miles from the border of Mexico, To Every Tribe Ministries was organized in 2004 as a pioneer church planting ministry that targets unreached people groups with the gospel of Jesus Christ. As a reformed and baptistic mission agency, To Every Tribe is both a training center and sending agency. Each To Every Tribe missionary spends approximately 60% of the internship in classroom studies and 40% in on-the-field training. More than 30 missionaries who have been trained in the Center for Pioneer Church Planting are serving around the world. To Every Tribe exists to extend the worship of Christ among all peoples by mobilizing the church, training disciple makers, and sending missionary teams to plant churches among the unreached.
To Every Tribe will be hosting its annual Open House for those interested in learning more about the Center for Pioneer Church planting or the property acquisition at the Chachalaca Bend property, January 11-13.
