Shenandoah Valley Coalition for Christ

 

Why We Started 

Several years ago I felt God asking me to step out to organize and network as many Churches, Non- Profit Organizations, Individuals and Businesses as possible to spread God's Word and work. For the next two years I kept trying to push the thoughts away, but as you know when God calls you out to do something you need to obey and just TRUST that He knows best. I was worried that I would not get enough folks on board to pull this off. Was I ever wrong! When I started sharing God’s vision with others, people came out of the wood work to step up to help. In 2005 we had our first Family Fun Day event and the response was GREAT!! We started with about 20 committee members and 13 churches and we have grown to almost 60 committee members and over 40 Churches, Businesses, Non- Profit groups and hundreds of volunteers.. Our Coalition members have stepped up and out of their comfort zones to provide events to help ease the stress of these trying times to as many people as possible. Our Coalition is God's Stimulus Plan for Eternity. I can NOT thank all of the people who have given time, sweat, tears, and many, many hours to help make this Coalition one that is able to help so many people who may have otherwise given up hope. We meet regularly at different churches throughout the Valley and we are always looking for fresh ideas to do the Lord’s work and trying to reach as many people as we can. We need volunteers, because as you know many hands make light work  Each one of you has a special gift that God has given to you. As I discovered when I thought I had no gift God showed me how to use the knowledge he had given me to organize events and groups in the past to be now used in bringing together across denominational lines a way to mobilize Churches, Non- Profits, Individuals  and Businesses to do His work. We are all in this together and God is calling us ALL out to make a difference and to work together for the greater good - His Kingdom in Heaven.
