Sitting on a hill just outside of Dallas, Texas, a small church is encouraging others to reach out to their community. In 2017, Church on the Hill averaged a little over sixty people in attendance each Sunday. Located on the poorer side Mesquite, the church didn’t have a lot of money and had never even organized a mission trip. However, they had a goal. Their pastor, John Lay, said, “If everyone in the flock could learn how to share their faith, study their Bible, and even learn how to pray, I figured I was doing my job as a pastor.” And so they learned! And ever since Pastor Lay started EE at Church on the Hill, they have completed four semesters and trained about a third of the congregation. During that time, forty-four people have joined the church and twenty-two were baptized as new believers. And the church has reached out to the community. Talk about a community impacted!
