PASTOR LUKE PARK OF FOUR WINDS NYC ON HIS VISIT WITH DR. ALVAREZ
“It was also great talking to Emilio, and I was so blessed by his presence and his words. Whether it was God speaking through the lips of Emilio or him speaking from his heart, I was deeply grateful to hear how much God cares and trusts me to continue this ministry in the city. I had buried my disappointment and some feelings I have yet to identify, but I was grateful to know that God hears them, too. I really loved and appreciated Emilio’s openness in sharing his own struggles and encouraging me how I have something that only I can contribute to the part of this city that God desires to see. To be honest, I had some doubts and was a bit frustrated leading into this next season, but through Asbury families, I have been given a new shoulder to lean on and be encouraged. There is something amazing your group of people are doing here, and I am sure God is at work through your team. I have yet to meet you guys in person, but through the past 2-3 months, I’ve been noticing how much God is trying to encourage me through your families: Jay Moon was one of them, for sure, Carson’s prayer over the phone, and this visit from Emilio was so timely, and can’t thank you enough for encouraging me!” – Luke Park

CCM’S PARTNERSHIP WITH EXPONENTIAL AUSTRALIA
The Asbury Center for Church Multiplication is pleased to have developed a partnership with Exponential Australia, centered around the critical theme of church multiplication. Leveraging Asbury Center’s international acclaim for its network of Global Hubs, which are dedicated to pioneering research and strategies in church multiplication, this collaboration is a noteworthy endeavor. As we prepare for the upcoming multiplication gathering in Australia, it’s evident that this partnership represents an important step forward. This collaborative effort holds great promise for advancing church multiplication within the broader Oceania continent and around the world!
