Open Letter to KACF

from Pastor Grady Summers…

I am grateful, as interim pastor of Kinney Avenue Christian Fellowship, to have the privilege of helping you go forward in this season of the church’s life. My desire for KACF, is that you grow in the experience of becoming one with the Lord and each other, being built up in love “as each part does its work” (Eph. 4:16b), striving with all His energy (Col. 1:29), to reach the unity of the full measure of Christ (Eph. 4:12-13), having been taught by the Holy Spirit, Who is your Enabler, to walk in step (Gal. 5:25) with Him, already in service to your mission field before your pastor arrives.

The spiritual wisdom and maturity of this fellowship has amazed me. I hope to contribute in helping to intensify what you are already growing well in. The focus of my messages at this time, will be on basic discipleship issues that will help this growth.

That scripture that expresses our heart for you is Romans 12:1-2:

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

The Lord has taken Judy and me on a great adventure, defining the heart of our ministry as one that seeks to restore, encourage, heal and help the body of Christ, all the while, growing His body by promoting unity of the fellowship and sharing the gospel with the lost.

Our prayer is that the Lord make us a blessing to you as we serve here at KACF. Let’s continue to advance His Kingdom together for His glory!

Pastor Grady
