1 Relevant. Biblical. Invitational.

2 The Story: CITYPOINT CHURCH in Washington, Iowa launches September 20th, 2015! As I was prayer walking in downtown Washington several years ago, I felt God prompting me to pursue planting a church. That prompting was confirmed through friends, mentors, pastors and the successful passing of an intense, week-long Church Planter s Assessment. In February 2014, I had the privilege of joining The Bridge Church in Ottumwa, Iowa where I had the unique opportunity to be coached by The Bridge staff and prepare for the launch of CITYPOINT CHURCH. There are 22 thousand people in Washington County. Over half of them are not attending church. I believe that by creating a church that UNchurched people love to attend, we will see the love of Jesus transform countless lives. It is my desire to see new churches launched throughout rural Iowa in communities that have not seen growing churches for far too long. God has miraculously brought together a dynamic team to lead CITYPOINT CHURCH. Sam Schield and Ryan Widdel share my heartbeat for creating a relevant, biblical, invitational church. I am deeply grateful for the talents and passion that they will bring. I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ Ephesians 3:17-18 CITYPOINT CHURCH is partnering with Converge Worldwide and The Bridge Church. These organizations will provide financial support, networking and coaching. I m excited for what s in store for Washington County and Rural Iowa! Praying Ephesians 3:20 for CITYPOINT CHURCH. Tony Widdel // Lead Pastor

3 CITYPOINT CHURCH we are A church that Unchurched People LOVE to Attend. A church that EXISTS to Point People to JESUS and help them follow Him. RELEVANT Helpful for Today. BIBLICAL Based on God s Word. INVITATIONAL An exciting place to invite others to. Called to Reach Rural Iowa through planting MULTIPLE churches across Iowa.

4 Core Values: Found People Find People Saved People Serve People We Do Life Together Growing People Change You Can t Outgive God The Strategy: COME On a Sunday. GROW In a Group. SERVE On a Team. GO Point People to Jesus.. Jesus called out to them, Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people! Matthew 4:19

5 Our Target: PEOPLE FAR FROM GOD Unchurched people who have never heard the good news of Jesus. People who need to understand that Jesus is freedom and not religion and rules, The dechurched who have had a painful or negative church experience and have walked away from God. Those who are choosing to live completely for themselves, who chase the fleeting things of this world. THE THIRSTY Those who are spiritual, intuitive, and know there is more, but need to know Jesus. The addicted, afflicted, the abused and forgotten, the alien and the orphan, the poor and the poor in spirit. People of faith longing to experience more of God in praise, life change, community, and action. THE NEXT GENERATION Youth who are walking away from faith because it seems irrelevant and powerless. Neglected, displaced, and lonely students looking to connect. Young adults who are seeking meaning for their lives. Young leaders willing to be molded into their generations leaders.

6 Tony Widdel :: Lead Pastor Tony was introduced to Jesus by a friend at 16-years-old. Overwhelmed by his new understanding of grace THE STAFF and love, he committed his life to sharing Jesus. He graduated from Northwestern College and served as a youth pastor for seven years. He is confident in God s call to plant CITYPOINT and full of enthusiasm for this new work! Tony & Cari Myka (3), Kara (2), Anna (7mo). Sam Schield :: Campus Pastor Sam can be described in one word: passionate. He is passionate about Jesus, about people, and about life! Ryan Widdel :: Creative Arts Pastor Ryan is musical & creative. He is a hard worker who loves sharing Jesus with everyone he meets.

7 Yes - we understand it's not normal! Doing church in a school is different, but we think you'll love it! We have extremely SAFE and CLEAN kids rooms. We transform the gym by setting up a stage, lights and chairs, making it a fun place to come to church and bring a friend! -Lead Pastor :: Tony Widdel Fundraising Goal: $250,000 How we will get there: Support from Churches, Large Gifts & Generous Individuals. $50,000 through 15 Churches $100,000 through Large Gifts $100,000 through 250+ Generous Individuals Would you prayerfully consider giving to CITYPOINT CHURCH? *Find out how you can support CITYPOINT on the next page.
