a person or a thing that acts, happens, or exists in such a way that some specific thing happens as a result; the producer of an effect.
A cause is reason for an action or condition, a motive, something that brings about an effect or a result.
When the Israelites were facing Goliath in the land who was challenging the armies of God, there was a David who rose up and said “Is there not a cause?” and slew Goliath. The word “cause” also has a deeper meaning: history. David literally could have been saying to his brothers “Is there not a history?” Are there not promises from our past that give us the favor and blessings that we need to overcome this giant? Could it be that David was referring to a future history, not just a history to connect to but a history to write? Maybe David was saying that history is going to include what we do today on this battlefield.
There is no doubt that we are facing several Goliaths of our day, and God has positioned us as a David in our territory to see a city won for the glory of God.
We have entered into a divine moment from the Lord to answer the needs of our city and region. Now is the time to arise as David did and Advance the Cause! We love the territory God has assigned us and want to see it reflect the kingdom of God— in Clewiston as it is in Heaven.
NOW IS THE TIME
Watershed moments are critical turning points in history. It’s the exact moment that changes the direction of an activity or situation. This is the moment where everything changes, and nothing would ever be the same as it was before.
Winston Churchill, the Prime Minister of Great Britain during World War II, once said, “Success is not final; failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” What God has set before us is going to take courage and boldness, but we believe that as we partner
with the Lord and each other, we have what it takes to Advance the Cause!
“The battle of the Christian life has always been not to just believe but to keep on believing.” - Pastor Jim Cymbala
We cannot afford to miss this moment, and we want to give you the opportunity to Advance the Cause together. A move of God is coming to our territory, and we must be able to contain the new outpouring God is releasing.
“The destinies of societies are shaped by great men and women who act boldly at key times.” - Thomas Carlyle
ADVANCE THE CAUSE
We have been blessed with 10 acres of property in a significant location in our city, and with everything that God has been doing at New Harvest, it’s time to expand our facilities with a new building. We are launching the campaign Advance the Cause to see the vision move forward. But before we build, the Lord has given us a strategy for us to enter into the building phase debt-free of our current facilities and property.
CHURCH PROPERTY & BUILDING DEBT: $732,863.50
No task is impossible with God, and we believe we have what it takes to see it happen! Over the next 20 months, we will be receiving a special Advance the Cause Offering on specific dates. You’ll find details below, so you can plan and prepare to bring your best gift to Advance the Cause.
We believe this is our assignment over the next 20 months. What we do on this spiritual battlefield today will make history for the generations to come.
