Would your church be interested in establishing a PAC or House Church? A new Parent Affiliated Congregation has been born. For those of you who may not be familiar with this new designation, a PAC is a group of people that defines themselves as a congregation and the parent church or district agrees. Our second PAC was launched this past Sunday at the Hollywood Church. PACS may be ethnic specific congregations and this was the case on December 10, 2013. A jam-packed church of Haitian believers gathered to launch Eglise du Nazareen Emmanuel de Hollywood. This will be a Ministry in French/Creole. Pastor Anan-Louis Rejouis (pronounced Rejwee) was appointed pastor of the new, fledgling congregation. Many of Pastor Rejouis friends from other denominations in the area joined in the celebration. Pascal Permis, Haitian Ministries Coordinator for USA/Canada was on hand for the launch service.
The service ended with a commissioning time with Host Pastor and wife, Joe and Karen Hollstein, the Hollywood Anglo church board, and ministers of the Gospel who were present. Commissioning prayers were prayed by Pastor Joe and by Pastor Jean Cidel, who was a classmate of Anan-Louis back in the 1960s when both graduated from the Seminary in Port-au-Prince.
An interesting fact about the name Eglise du Nazareen Emmanuel de Hollywood is in memory of Pastor Anan-Louis and Emily Rejouis son, a doctor, who was lost in the 2010 Earthquake of Haiti. They also lost a grandson to the earthquake.
Perhaps your church should consider the beginning of a PAC. If we are to reach our Mission Field, we must reach the people groups among us here in Southern Florida. We hope to announce soon the launch of a new House Church in the Golden Gate area of Naples. Maybe it is time to consider taking the church into a new community. This is more than a Bible study group. It is a church in a community context. These may be lay led.
Another new Hispanic church plant is set for launch this Sunday in Hialeah Gardens at 6:00 pm. Harvest 20/20 is fully engaged.
