WANT TO GO DEEPER IN YOUR WALK WITH CHRIST?

Operation Solid Lives (OSL) is a discipleship program designed to transform lives by saturating  attendees with the Word of God while limiting the distractions of the world. Whether you have been a  Christian for a long time or recently decided to follow Jesus, OSL is for you. This program can  powerfully change any life forever, not because of the classes, but because of the focus on the life changing power of the Lord and personal time with Him.  

During the class you will be in the Word daily while journaling using the SOAP method (Scripture,  Observation, Application, Prayer).  In doing this it helps us to meditate on the Word and learn to hear  from God in a deeper way.  You will also be in prayer daily building your personal relationship with  God while spending quality time with Him.  There are additional teachings to listen to during the week  so that you can continue to grow in the Word, time is set aside for ministry and attending church  services.  While doing all this there is a short media fast so we can take the distractions of this world  out of our lives to focus on God and who He is calling us to be. 

We offer Level 1 and Level 2 (Operation Solid Lives) periodically throughout the year.  Check below for current class being offered. OSL Level 1 is an intense four week discipleship program, with all other Levels being a 6 week discipleship.  Check out the videos below. We have room for 16 people - 8 men and 8 women at each class. 

LEVEL 1

In Level 1, we learn not just how much God really loves us, but the price He paid for us. We see throughout the entire Bible where He is trying to show us He is always there calling us to Him.  We learn the Good News is really not good news when we don’t understand the Bad News and what true repentance means.

  • Level 1 | Sunday, SEPTEMBER 30 - OCTOBER 28, 2018 3:00pm- 5:30pm

LEVEL 2

In Level 2, we learn about what blood covenant truly means and how iT affects so many parts of our  lives.  We learn how to understand and receive the Baptism with the Holy Spirit and how much He  desires for us to have the gifts He is offering. We also learn how we can help others to receive the  Baptism with the Holy Spirit. 

  • Level 2 | Sunday, sEPTEMBER 30 - November 14 2018, 1:00pm - 3:30pm


Rooted is our Sunday morning Children's Ministry. We believe at Gig Harbor Foursquare that there is no Jr. Holy Spirit and that our children have the same ability to come to know Christ as any adult does. So, we never just babysit kids; every opportunity we have with children we look at as a mission, a chance to tell them that God loves them so much He gave His ONLY Son so they may live forever in relationship with God.

Bring your children and allow us to confirm and strengthen their knowledge, understanding and relationship with Jesus.

Denise Johnson

Ministering in Central Europe since 1986

Resident Missionary in Poland since 1996

Called to be a person in whom Christ dwells, who exhibits His unfailing love & faithfulness, while making my home among the Polish people. (based on John 1:14)

I have been ministering in Poland & Central Europe since 1986. In the beginning I visited twice a year encouraging the believers I had met on my first short term mission trip with my local church. As time went on I found myself sharing in churches & youth camps, smuggling Bibles, teaching parenting & marriage courses, & coordinating small humanitarian projects. When communism fell it changed the whole face of missions in Central & Eastern Europe. It was during this time that a number of my Polish friends began to ask me to come to Poland to stay. To be honest it hadn’t really crossed my mind to be a full time missionary. As I prayed about it & sought God’s confirmation it became clear that the 10 years of “commuting” to Poland had written Poland & her people deeply on my heart. Although I was still physically living in Kirkland, WA my mind & heart had already relocated.

As Poland has changed and adapted to being part of the free market world, NATO and most recently, the European Union, so has my focus evolved. My primary goal is to be Christ’s vessel of unfailing love & faithfulness through modeling integrity & truth, while teaching & empowering others to minister God’s love, hope  & power in everyday life. For the many people I interact with every day, I am the 1st if not the only evangelical they have ever met. Today I am the pastor of a church plant in a suburb of Krakow (Nowy Targ). My church is registered under Church of God in Poland. In June of 2012 we showed the film “Fireproof” & have started going through the “Love Dare” journal as a church.   We also have many outreaches in the neighboring village(s) of Czorstyn. So far in 2012 we have: St Patrick Day outreach 75% were from outside the church, 2 baseball outreaches in the village, children’s pen pal exchange, women’s meeting “understanding your value as God’s creation”, a public showing of “Fireproof”.

In this unfriendly environment toward evangelicals it is difficult to win the right to be heard…or even exist. The small group of young, faithful, believers that I serve have eagerly joined me with a BIG vision to reach our community with hope. We have a desire to create a center of HOPE where the church will serve the community. There are 4 aspects to this center:

1.     Café: Starbuck’s style. To provide legal work & a workplace that respects its workers & the workers work as onto the Lord

2.     After school program for latchkey kids: Most Polish families both parents work long hours & the kids are left on their own as fewer & fewer parents can leave their kids with grandparents. These programs will include:

a.     Study Skills & tutoring help

b.     Sports, crafts & games

c.     Self discovery for the purpose of deciding what to study at university

d.     Community service projects

3.     Workshops & seminars to serve the needs of the community:

a.     Parenting support

b.     Teacher training

c.     Youth programs

d.     Etc.

4.     A place for the church to meet that is public but safe from being evicted.

We have found a building that we are believing for. It is vacant & in a great location for what we would want to do. There is a “strip” park down one side of the building: 2 playgrounds for small children, a basketball court & a skate park.  There are 11 blocks of apartments that are on either side of the building & a technical high school across the street. The estimated cost of the basement, plus 2 floor building, ground & remodel is $500,000.

Tom and Diane Terry

Welcome! We have been in Christian media since 1983 working in radio, television, and the Internet in Arizona, New Mexico, Florida, Turkey, and Mongolia. Now the Lord has given us a ministry with the Jesus Film Project that has us involved in showing the Jesus Film on television stations worldwide.

How can you reach people for Christ in countries where the population may be indifferent or even hostile to the Gospel? Media is the answer. Media is a powerful tool that enables millions of people to discover God’s love and how they can have a personal relationship with Jesus.

The Jesus Film is already the most watched film in history. Billions of people have seen the Jesus Film. Nearly a quarter billion people have come to faith in Christ through this motion picture. Now that the film has been restored and re-released in HD, millions more will see the story of Jesus through new broadcast efforts to share Christ through television worldwide.

Our past ministry work has helped bring thousands of men and women to Christ in the US, the Muslim world, and Mongolia. Tom is a Broadcast Specialist, having worked in talent and administrative positions in radio and television for more than 30 years. He has helped build and train staff of Christian radio and TV stations in three countries. Most recently, he served as President of Eagle Television in Mongolia, that nation's first independent TV station after the fall of communism. While in Mongolia, he also hosted the number one rated television program,Together Through The Bible, and authored more than 30 Bible studies used by the ministry to teach discipleship to more than 25,000 Mongolians nationwide.

Tom's previous media work includes serving as producer of the nationally syndicated radio program, Connection, hosted by Skip Heitzig, and as head of marketing and development for three syndicated radio properties hosted by the late Dr. Bill Bright. He also served as Operations Manager for KVOI (Tucson, Arizona) and KLYT (Albuquerque, New Mexico).

Diane works with volunteers at Cru headquarters in Orlando, Florida. Her work includes putting together ministry packages used by staff across the country to help them share their faith and lead students to Christ.

Partnership & Investment

In today’s challenging world, fulfilling the Great Commission is a task that no person or organization can do alone. Reaching the world for Christ requires ministry partnerships and financial investments designed to bring the love of Jesus through practical means to people who long to know the truth about God and how they can know him personally. We need your partnership in our ministry to enable us to do just that. Would you please consider taking a step of faith with us by financially investing in our ministry?

Thank you for your consideration and desire to reach challenging and difficult areas of the world for Christ.

 


Ken and Linda Stapleton

 

Ken and Linda Stapleton, ordained Foursquare missionaries are both Seattle/Northwest natives who have been working in the Czech Republic for the past twenty-three years and deployed there since 1997. Their sending church is Living Way/Seattle Foursquare Church pastored by Kaj Martin. They’ve been members there since 1974.

The Czech Republic separated itself from the Soviet Union in 1989 after nearly a half century of communist rule. During that time, Christianity was systematically eliminated from the cultural landscape and Christians were discriminated against, especially in employment and educational opportunities. At least twenty percent of the population were government informers so being secretive, cautious and suspicious became hallmarks of society. That is the field that Ken and Linda stepped into in 1994.

The churches they found were small and weakened and experienced leadership was not easy to find. Ken and Linda arrived amid a small but powerful time of revival only to recognize that new churches were emerging but no one was available with ministry experience to nurture and mentor new pastors. They saw their years of ministry experience as a natural fit for the needs of those young leaders.

As time went on, Ken and Linda engaged in teaching in a Bible Training School, personal mentoring of new church leaders and training Christians in outreach and personal evangelism.

Over the years they have seen their ministry evolve to helping identify and mentor second generation leaders, modeling outreach techniques and practicing incarnational evangelism. Their ongoing work centers on making themselves available to serve and resource local pastors in whatever way they are asked.

Over the past few months they have invested much in making opportunity available for young, aspiring missionaries to come and serve alongside them as interns, trainees and aides. Their heart’s desire is to facilitate releasing the next generation of missionaries into the rich and rewarding field of Central Europe and wherever else God may call them.

Worship is so important to us at GH4². We believe that worship is an opportunity for God's people to be unified in lifting up the name of Jesus. It is in our worship that our hearts are softened and our ears are often more attentive to the voice of the Lord. We have seen time and time again worship prepare the way for the Word of the Lord to go deep into the hearts of His people as we focus on Him.

Are you interested in being a part of the worship ministry at GH4²? If so, complete the form below and we will work at getting you plugged in.

At Gig Harbor 4², we believe in membership. Not for the sake of having a "clique" or to lord it over people. We believe that in the early church, seen in Acts, there was a two-way commitment between the pastor and apostles and the body of Christ. They pooled their resources, met together, prayed for one another. We believe that we should have something along the same lines. As a church, we commit to praying for our members, teaching the Word of the Lord, assisting in raising their children to know Christ and so much more. We ask of members to be committed, to be honest and seek the Lord, to tithe and to minster one to another. We truly believe that all of us have a calling and that God has given us our individual callings to use in the body of Christ so that when we are united together we become a tool that the Lord can use to do great things within our families, community and throughout all of the earth.

1. Listen to the two messages found below, "What We Believe" and "We All Have A Role".
