We believe we are at a pivotal point in the history of our church. The Trails Church has had a vibrant first two and a half years of existence. We have seen God go before us, sustain us, and continue to grow us as a church. We have had the privilege of baptizing and discipling men, women, and children as our church has grown in both depth and number, reaching people from a variety of ages and backgrounds. We have had the joy of being a part of Bible translation in India and, Lord willing, we will send our first full-time missionary to Africa in early 2022. Despite a tumultuous 2020, we have experienced some of our largest Sunday morning gatherings in the history of our church. Our kids and student ministries continue to grow and thrive.
In order to be faithful to our calling and to maximize the opportunities that God has opened to us, the Lord has led us as a church to launch a new initiative that we are calling For the Mission. The vision of For the Mission is to reach people with the good news of the gospel, disciple people in the power of the gospel, and send people into the world to proclaim the gospel. In an era of drastically shifting cultural norms, we believe that the good news of Jesus Christ remains the hope for the world. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). With more and more people relocating to our area every month, we see incredible potential to reach more and more families. Our desire is to be a thriving, physical, gospel presence in our community. We long to see more disciples made, more churches planted, and more missionaries sent. This is the motivation of For the Mission.
Our vision to reach, disciple, and send people is driving our desire to invest in building a church home. Having our own building will help us establish a permanent base for gospel ministry, create a welcoming space for the community, and communicate to North Texas that we are committed to being here for the long haul. In addition to these benefits, having our own building will ensure we have a consistent basecamp for all of our members and ministries to call home.
We desire to build a church home that fosters community with a variety of gathering spaces, both indoors and outdoors. Our goal is to build a campus that fully meets our current needs, but is also phaseable and flexible, able to evolve as the needs of our congregation grow over the years. Our lobby, entry plaza, and back patio will be inviting spaces for our people to gather and connect with one another, whether for welcoming new guests for the first time, or providing a beautiful meeting space for fellowship over a cup of coffee.
