Below is a really well done video of Justin Anderson explaining the vision of Redemption Church, a new church being formed in the Valley as East Valley Bible Church and Praxis Church merge together. The leaders of EVBC and Praxis are good friends of mine who have shaped me and Second Mile in significant ways, and I am genuinely thrilled about the impact that this new work will have in our city.
What makes this especially unique is that almost all church mergers (like business mergers) happen in order to bail out a struggling congregation. But Redemption is the coming together of two healthy, large, financially sound churches for the sake of a bigger kingdom impact. That’s not something you see every day.
Pray for Redemption as they begin this new effort, as they work out key details, and as they go through this time of transition.
