From the desk of Andrew Burchett

We have a passion to see God’s kingdom built in every sphere of influence in our city.  As a church, we want to help people experience the power and love of Jesus and share it with others.  We believe that Jesus came to give us life to the fullest, which means that our lives are a constant adventure as we share the good news about Jesus and our lives as well.  

I (Andrew) was deeply impacted by Pastor Larry Lane, my predecessor here at NC.  His heart to see our city changed resonated with me and led me to join the ministry here.  Pastor Larry established an organization called Kingdom Catalyst a handful of years ago, and as a church we support their ministry financially. 

Mark Volstad is the pastor of our Spanish church, Cristo Salva. Mark serves on the board of Kingdom Catalyst and he describes their ministry this way: 

The purpose of Kingdom Catalyst is to inspire, equip, and assist the body of Christ in advancing the Kingdom of God in their communities resulting in measurable community transformation.

To fulfill this mission, KC is partnering with the Sentinel Group to advance the message of transforming revival throughout the United States. George Otis, Jr., the founder of the Sentinel Group, researched nearly eight-hundred contemporary cases and two-hundred historical cases of transforming revival, looking for patterns that point to principles. He only extracted those things in common to every story. The result was a body of insights and principles we call “The Journey to Transformation.” KC provides information meetings, trainers for Discovery Weekends, and ongoing coaching for hungry believers desiring to see God move and transform their community. KC also provides, through its online store, a host of video and written materials to aid in the understanding of and inspiration for transforming revival.

Our dream is to see a great transforming revival sweep through northern California (this is our “Jerusalem”) and spread to the west coast states and wherever God extends to us an open door. We see this as the only hope for the Church and our nation.

If you want to hear stories about how God is moving through the efforts of our friends at Kingdom Catalyst, come to dinner this Saturday at 6:30pm.  Leaders from different Norcal communities will be sharing what God is doing in their towns. The Kingdom Catalyst Annual Banquet is happening in our Fellowship Hall at the church and you can register at kingdomc.org (click on the events tab), or call 530.520.6997.
