2020 The Year of Urgency

21 Day Church Fast - January 20th - February 9th

Is not this the fast that I choose:

to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?  Isaiah 58:6

Here are some of the items we will be praying for during this season of fasting:

1.  220 people will come to know Christ at JFBC in 2020.

2.  Each member will lead at least one person to Christ.

3.  Our nation, our military, and their families.

4.  Our after school program, the students and our new student pastor.

5. 100% participation of our members as we Gather in love, Grow together in Christ and Go tell the world about our Savior.

6. All JFBC events in 2020.

7. Growth of our small groups and L.O.V.E. Our City outreach.

8. Our local, national and global missions and missionaries.

9. Each family in our church.

10. The local churches in our area.

11. The budget needs of JFBC and our ministry partners.

12.  Vision, wisdom, and protection from the enemy.

13. A great awakening in our nation.

Warrior Weekend

For everyone who has been born of GOD overcomes the world.  

And this is the victory that has overcome the world - our faith.  --I John 5:4

All Christians have been called to follow Jesus, who has come and has already conquered our true enemy. (I John 3:8)  Our LORD has given us power to overcome the enemy in our daily lives.  (I John 4:4)  In this conference, you will discover proven principles of victory that have been successful in evey generation.  The battle is not new.  The enemies tactics are not new.  The church has just forgotten how to fight the enemy.  

Join with other believers as we discover GOD's battle plan together.
