Through the church, God is showing off all His multi-faceted brilliance to all the powers in the heavens and on earth. Our glorious God does this through His church joined with Him on His mission. What we are seeing at Sugar Creek is a people that feel the heart of God’s passion and desires, and respond in radical obedience. The result is extraordinary…an outcome that far surpasses the means of men.
Over 1,400 adults have attended Sugar Creek’s highly successful Gospel Conversation Training since 2015, yet we have completed revamped and made it even better!
The darkest place in our city, only 4.5 miles from Sugar Creek, is the epicenter of sex-trafficking, drugs, and crime in our city. God is doing a new thing there.We have moved from doing ministry for the people to doing ministry with the people. People have been baptized, prostitutes and drug addicts have been set free, fathers are raising their kids, men and women are getting jobs, and a new drug has been introduced to the street – LOVE.
When two women from Sugar Creek went to Mumbai as part of a Gospel team, and to train a fledging ministry on some sewing skills, they were shocked to be detained upon arrival at the airport and sent back home because of previous Gospel activity in India. So they moved their training to Kathmandu, Nepal and the social enterprise Hilltop of Hope was birthed.. In the first few months of operation they have sold over $60,000 worth of bags, which funds the ministry to rescue and restore women from the red-light district of Mumbai where we have seen over 31 women rescued and baptized. WOW…we did not plan this!
Sugar Creek has leveraged our relationships and skills learned in India to form a catalytic national team that owns the vision to fulfill the Great Commission in Bogota, the nation of Colombia and beyond. It worked! What church does this!
In 2012 Sugar Creek began a strategy to create a multiplying church planting movement in the city of Delhi, India. We have sent ordinary people on strategic short-term mission trips filled with the Spirit and the results are extraordinary! We actually have an exit strategy…what church does this? WOW.
