West Poplar Street Church of God in York, PA has partnered with House of Restoration Church in Charlotte, NC.
We are better together and the new partnership between the West Poplar Street Church of God in York, PA and House of Restoration Church in Charlotte, NC is a great example of this. Pastor Mary Houston and team launched in Charlotte on September 11 this past fall. Meanwhile Pastor Tracey Utermahlen became Pastor in York at West Poplar in January. Now God has led these two churches to connect and help each other in various ways.
Pastor Mary has been involved in restoration ministry for many years and knows how to minister in the city. In York, Pastor Tracey and the team there want to reach their neighborhood in new ways. This healthy collaboration will help each church to see lives changed and people discipled in their cities and neighborhoods.
On April 30, 2017, the Sunday on the day before annual ERC Conference this year, West Poplar Street Church of God invited Mary to share her heart as she preached in York. The response was very good as friendships began and plans were made for the future.
Meanwhile that day in Charlotte a ministry partner of House of Restoration, Minister Joanna Richardson, preached and worship was celebrated. That day, while Mary was in Pennsylvania, one person gave their life to Christ at House of Restoration. The angels in heaven rejoiced and so do we. Partnering and helping one another and having leaders who can carry on while we are serving in other places…lives changed, leaders leading, and disciples being made!
