THE STORY:

It is with great excitement that I introduce to you to Compass Church. Compass Church is a new church to Des Moines, Iowa. An Unlikely Church Planter: Having grown up in the heavily churched South and serving in a large and growing church, I would have willingly stayed and developed my ministry and calling right there. However, God had other plans, and His plans are always good. In the spring of 2011, the Church of God State Administrative Bishop of the Midlands Region, asked me to plant a church in Beatrice, Nebraska. I respectfully declined, citing inexperience in church planting. Fortunately God equips us according to our calling. After much fasting and prayer the Lord broke my heart for this endeavor and in July of 2011 my family and I moved to Beatrice to start a church. The following four years were more difficult than words could express and we faced unimaginable opposition. Investing all of our energy, time, money and passion, we endured, and the dream became reality. Having planted the church and seen fruit, we would have willingly stayed and continued the work. However, God had other plans, and His plans are always good. In early summer of 2015, my Wife and I both began to feel God’s release. After a time of prayer and fasting and seeking God’s heart, we were asked to go to Des Moines, IA. Doing so would mean uprooting our children again, and both my Wife and I leaving comfortable jobs with no guarantee of jobs in our new home. However, having sought God, we knew this was His plan, and His plans are always good. Your partnership with us would have a great impact. As you view this fundraiser, please prayerfully consider ongoing involvement with us. I would enjoy hearing from you. I look forward to your questions, your comments and your desire to learn more about this new ministry. Craig Avery, Lead Pastor of Compass Church craigavery1@yahoo.com 515-612-8992
