Seeking to be More Like Jesus
Boots On The Ground
Elders Javon & Linda Thomas partner with Resurrection and other local congregations in order to make disciples of those whom no one else has reached. Boots On The Ground has led Resurrection into ministry at Brook Ridge Apartments, the Scottsdale trailer park, and many other places.
Christians Against Poverty (CAP)
CAP is an international ministry, begun in England, that works through local churches to befriend people struggling with their finances:
CAP Debt Center renegotiates debts
CAP Money Course teaches budgeting skills
CAP Jobs Club coaches job applicants
CAP just arrived in the USA in 2019, and so it may take most of 2020 to get the ministry off the ground here in Emporia . . . watch this space!
If you're tired of carrying around 'baggage' and triggers and trauma from the past, or if you’re yearning for a deeper connection with Jesus Christ than you’ve ever had before, then our Immanuel Approach ministry is for you.
The Immanuel Approach was developed by psychiatrist Karl Lehman, M.D., based on his 40,000+ hours of clinical work with people from different parts of the world who have suffered from virtually every problem under the sun. There’s no problem too small or too large that Immanuel can’t handle.
From the enemy of cancer to a sore foot, no affliction is too big and no ailment is too small that it doesn't deserve to come under the authority of Jesus the Healer.
We haven't seen enough immediate breakthroughs yet, but we are continuing to charge ahead in compassionate ministry to the whole person.
Eight of us recently participated in an intense
3-day workshop in Virginia Beach that encouraged and equipped us to be more effective in reaching out with God's power and love.
We're also exploring a ministry called Healing On The Streets.
