#WeLoveHou Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:15:37 +0000 Read More]]> Check out this post from RVC members Sid and Rochelle Jennings who are from the Houston area and learn how you can help out the victims of Hurricane Harvey!


Houston Northwest has been my home church since I was seven.  HNW members are not only friends; they are family.  They have had a huge impact on who I am today.  They have prayed with me and over me through some really hard times, sang at my wedding, visited me after I had each of my babies, taken care of me when my husband moved up early to start school, and helped us pack up to join him in Wisconsin. They have and continue to live out the gospel in very tangible ways in my life.

In 2015 HNW rolled out its #welovehou campaign. The intent was to love the city of Houston in such a way that people can’t help but see a living and loving God.  In the last two years several churches have joined the campaign and it has been manifested in various ways throughout the city. A few weeks before Hurricane Harvey, HNW and Crossover Bible Church came together to pray over the mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner.  Only God knew that they were helping to prepare him to lead the City of Houston in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

As Hurricane Harvey passed and the magnitude of the destruction came into focus, #welovehou hit the ground running.  Houston Northwest, Crossover Bible Church, and numerous other churches and ministries have seized the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a desperately hurting city.  They are collecting and distributing food, water, diapers, clothes and cleaning supplies to people that have lost everything.  They are sending out teams to help families “mud out” or clean out contaminated walls, flooring, furniture and trash from their flooded homes. They are washing the clothes of families who have lost washers and dryers. They are collecting and distributing money to help families, specifically ones without flood insurance, cover basic necessities including things like refrigerators and hot water heaters.

The needs of the city are still significant.  This is not a sprint; it is a marathon.  Help is still hugely needed.

Please pray.

Pray for Pastor Steve Bezner as he leads HNW and his family. He has had the opportunity to be on the news and other television programs. Please pray that Houston and the World would see Jesus in him. Please pray that he would continue to lean on God to guide him through this journey.

Pray for HNW as they really get to put #WELOVEHOU to action. Not only in their community, but in Houston as a whole. Pray that the congregation would not grow weary as rebuilding will take time. HNW is not only loving others but also cleaning up their building and figuring out how to get things up and running soon.

Pray about how you and your family can help.

Pray for Houston!

Houston and HNW will always be a home to me. I really wish I could physically be there to help. Until that time, please join me in helping from afar.

Rochelle Jennings details out some of the specific needs in Houston.  Money donated goes out in the community and not to HNW. It is very specifically being distributed to people in need, believers and non-believers alike.  They are also coordinating and facilitating groups who feel called to come volunteer.

For information on volunteering, contact Dwight Davis at

Like “Houston Northwest Church” on Facebook. There are videos, photos and updates about what is going on, where money is going and where more help is needed.

If you have any questions, please contact me at

Good News Club Thu, 27 Jul 2017 19:33:50 +0000 Read More]]> Several churches around Madison are partnering with Child Evangelism Fellowship to host “Good News Clubs” at local public schools. These clubs provide opportunities for children – who may have never been to church before – to hear the Gospel once per week after school.

Here is a promotional video from a Good News Club at a school in Milwaukee.

Child Evangelism Fellowship provides the curriculum and training. The curriculum was written for 4-12 year olds, but it can be tailored for high school students as well.

Would you prayerfully consider volunteering 1-2 hours per week to share the Good News with the children in our community?

Contact Emily ( for more information.
