Q + A with Phil and Natalie Borjas
Q: Why are you planting a church?
A: “During a season of transition, we found ourselves visiting churches around town rather than being on staff for the first time in a while. We learned about church planting through a Pine Hills Instagram post – they were hosting a class where they shared the Pine Hills vision for planting 10 churches in 10 years. With each Sunday that passed it was clear that the Lord was putting church planting on our hearts. Through our walk with the Lord we have not felt any doubt or reluctancy in this season. There has been a strong sense of peace from the first day we walked into Pine Hills Church.
The vision for our church plant is to cultivate a place where the presence of the Lord and the gospel message is the focal point. A place where people are being discipled and forming community. The church plant will focus on connecting with and meeting the needs of the community through partnership with social service agencies. Our heart is to meet the needs of the least of these, spiritually and physically.”
Q: What do you need?
A: “To be a successful, we need believers who are willing to step out in faith to be a part of the foundation of the church plant. We need people who are ready to serve and step in to meet the needs of the church. A successful church will need financial resources to cover costs for sound/lighting equipment, chairs, marketing, and possibly facility rental. One of our biggest challenges might be finding a facility that is suitable for weekly gatherings. As we pray and continue to walk in faith, We are trusting the Lord to show us a specific location with a building that is available. We know the Lord answers prayers which continues to confirm that we are right where we are suppose to be.
As a church, we would appreciate prayers for our family as we walk this journey; that the Lord would continue to have His hand of protection over our marriage and our children. We also ask that you pray over individuals and families that are interested in joining the church plant; that the Lord would bring direction, peace, and confirmation that they are going to be a vital part of the church plant.”
