July 10th: Derek and Lindsay Allen, Miami Florida
God changes hearts in a flash. In one instant a person’s reality is altered and everything moves in a new direction. When that instant occurred for Derek Allen, he moved his family to Miami, leaving behind everything they knew of life before to follow God’s calling and plant a church.
Derek and his wife launched Christ Centered Church on Feb. 9 with 170 in attendance and two baptisms already on the books. Meeting on the north campus of Florida International University, the church is already impacting its community and beyond. Even in its infancy, Christ Centered Church has already hosted more than seven mission teams.
Our church helped launch this new church because we support thousands of North American missionaries like Derek and Lindsay through our church’s Cooperative Program giving. Today let’s pray for our missionaries there in Miami as they reach people for Christ!
