Howard & Lynette Webbchurch family embracing its purpose

Right now we are needing to raise $8500 in one-time support in order to cover our furlough in South Africa in November; and we need to raise $1200 in monthly support to meet the shortfall in our monthly staff account (we’ve lost three supporters to serious illness – but don’t let that put you off joining our team 😊!).
We have 27 years of experience with Tandem and Love Your Neighbour in helping churches be more effective in outreach. Together with others, including our colleague Bruce Edmonds, we are also engaged in a church plant of our own called church@onetwosix in Pt Chevalier.
Our big idea? Instead of mission being something that we as individuals and teams only do outside of church, why not bring mission into church by creating an hospitable gospel space with plenty of time for conversation?
We define mission as ‘the process by which my friends become part of my church family’. This understanding of mission means I need to invite the people I know – and when they arrive, they need to find an attractive Kingdom community that has been expecting to meet them!
Our Redemptive Family church series is a 6-week journey that includes daily devotionals, weekly surveys, sermon and small group material. At the end we run a weekend churchwide conversation to help embed some small but significant culture change that will set the church on the path to becoming a truly redemptive family!

We’d love you to prayerfully consider supporting us on this faith journey. Your financial gift enables us to continue freeing up ordinary church folk to embrace mission, not as lone crusaders but with a network of support from their church family.
