To all my friends and family out there:
As you know, we are preparing to move to Madison, WI to help launch a church. Ezra Church (www.ezrachurch.com) just started officially in April. We plan to move there at the end of August, and are pretty excited for this adventure!
We are seeking prayer and financial supporters. This could be you! (In fact, if you are a follower of Christ and know how to pray, than I KNOW this is you. :) )
We've heard it said that church planting is on the "front lines" of ministry--Satan does not want effective, vibrant churches to flourish in the nation! 3,500-4,000 churches CLOSE every year in America. And only 1,000-1,500 are planted. This is why we believe in taking this next step! A new church plant has advantages in reaching people for Christ:
A: It's a fresh new start--it's new, people wanna check it out.
B: It has a strong vision--hey, the vision was just created, so it hasn't had time to dilute and fade yet!
C: It's outreach focused--there is no "in" club, no cliques--everyone is new!
Please consider joining us in the adventure. If you'd like to join our prayer team, please email me at kristin.lindeen @ gmail.com (omit spaces). If you'd like to find out how to make a monthly financial commitment, or even give a one time gift, please contact me! I'd love share more with you.

Thank you for your support! We couldn't do this without you.
