Liberty Church was born in New York City with a heart for cities everywhere, and a vision to know Christ and make Him known. Every year throughout December we bring a special offering together for missions and church planting that we call the Legacy Offering. As we Follow Jesus, and Thrive In Community, the Legacy Offering is a very tangible way in which we Make A Difference. There’s something designed by God in the heart of every person…a desire to leave a legacy, to have an impact beyond our lifetime, to live for something greater than ourselves. Dave Ohlerking, the Founder of Children’s Cup, said, “One day all you’ll have is what you’ve given to God.” When we live with that kind of Kingdom perspective everything changes.

LIBERTY CHURCH LONDON

Liberty Church began in New York City around a Central Park picnic table in 2010 but has become a thriving global family of local church communities. It’s with that same pioneering spirit that we are sending Jonny & Tasha Pettman to establish Liberty Church London in 2019. London is a gateway city of almost 9 million people, and to influence London is to influence the world. Our prayer is that it would be the first of many new faith communities across Europe and beyond, as we sow back into the nations that for centuries sent missionaries to evangelize the earth.

 

Overall we’ll need to raise a total of $400,000 in order to launch in strength and support this new community in its first year as it grows towards sustainability, and we hope to see a significant portion of that goal come in through the Legacy Offering. The Pettmans are already on the ground in London, gathering a launch team and establishing partnerships with other organizations that are passionate about seeing more churches established across the city.

 

 

 

 

OWNERSHIP IN MANZINI, AFRICA

The Liberty Community Centre in Manzini has been an extraordinary success story. What began as a dream to serve the needs of the city has become a bustling hub of community care with not only our own team but also as many as 25 other organizations using the facility every month. Then 2018 saw the launch of Liberty Church Manzini which has quickly become a thriving faith community with 225 people making decisions for Christ to date.

 

Exciting opportunities are now arising for us to either own permanent facilities for the first time including the possibility of buying the building we have been renting, or purchasing land and building facilities. We also need funds for smaller projects such as tents to accommodate the kids programs which are outgrowing the current facility. Already the work in Manzini is more than 50% supported by local funds. Owning a facility will remove rent from our monthly expenses and rapidly accelerate our progress towards being fully self- sustaining financially. Our hope is to raise $300,000 overall to realize the next stage of these dreams, and we hope to raise a large portion of that goal through the Legacy Offering.

GLOBAL MISSIONS

It has never been more possible than it is today for a local church to have a global impact. Through many years of partnership with a small group of trusted organizations we have seen that impact multiply. God promised his people in Psalm 2:8, “Ask me to give you the nations and I will do it, and they shall become your legacy” (TPT). We’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to sow into several nations in recent years and new opportunities are also emerging for us to expand upon that foundation.
