Heart the square
During worship some weeks we have teams praying for strangers passing by during church. Instead of just asking people to come to church, we bring church to the people Sunday nights. God has passion for people who don't know they are looking for Him. He is looking for every lost son, every lost daughter and we echo that pursuing heart. After church a couple people from our church started talking to these 4 best friends and they all realized together that they needed Jesus and prayed to receive Him. We want to love Mckinney and love the people that walk by just as Jesus loves them.
we have a heart for the least of these and are pursuing connections with the samaritan inn in mckinney to help them in their mission to homeless men, women and families

Supernatural lifestyle training
As a church we are training people to live the life of Jesus Christ and the early church (even the OT prophets) who brought people around them into a supernatural encounter with Jesus Christ through His tangible love, gifts of prophecy, healing, words of knowledge and the ability to share the gospel clearly and lead people to the Lord wherever we go. As a church we do our best to activate people in this lifestyle. We don't believe Jesus, Old Testament heroes like Daniel and Elijah or Apostles and New Testament non apostles like Stephen are merely historical figures but are models of what is available to today's believer to represent God to the world today. Our heart is to train you up to live a supernatural lifestyle, knowing God and showing Him to the world.
impact the 7 mountains of culture for jesus
MAKING DISCIPLES OF NATIONS IN ALL 7 SPHERES OF CULTURE - GOVERNMENT, FAMILY, RELIGION, BUSINESS, ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT, EDUCATION, MEDIA
Jesus called us to disciple nations, as Daniel discipled the Babylonian king and government, we believe that God is not just calling us to get people saved within nations but disciple nations. So we have a heart to see God's Kingdom move and advance in these 7 mountains or spheres of society. If you are a senator or mayor or work in government we want to equip you to impact that sphere for God. If you are a stay at home Mom we believe you can impact that sphere of family for Jesus. If you own a small business we believe you can disciple people within your business. If you are in the film industry we want to see Jesus Kingdom there. Only through discipling each sphere of society can we truly disciple nations instead of making disciples within nations.
The 7 Mountain mandate has it modern day inception with two great apostolic giants of the faith who have pioneered some of the largest youth movements in the world: Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth with a Mission (YWAM), and Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ. In August of 1975 these two leaders had lunch and were comparing notes of what God was speaking to them. Surprisingly, they both on the same day received the same revelation from the Lord concerning the 7 spheres of influence that are the mind-molders of society, culture and nations. They began to share it with their movements, but it did not gain much global traction in that season.
A few years ago, some current apostolic leaders picked up that revelation and began to develop it more in the framework of using the term “mountains” rather than just “spheres.” The message began to gain traction and is becoming an apostolic mandate for our generation.
Briefly, the 7 Mountains are the Mountain of Religion; Mountain of Family; Mountain of Government; Mountains of Business; Mountains of Arts and Entertainment; Mountains of Media; Mountain of Education. Of course there are many “hills” or subcategories such as “Sports” which could be under the Mountain of Arts and Entertainment, etc. But these 7 Mountains are the primary mind-molders of culture that influence cities and nations, and the 3-8% that reach the tops of these mountains are the dominant influencers of the whole mountain.
Isaiah 2: 1-5 (Micah 4:1-7) speaks of the mountain of the Lord’s temple (palace, house, court, etc) being established as chief or highest among the mountains – or you could say “ruler of the mountains,” and as this happens – or is manifest, all nations/all peoples will flow or “stream” up to it.
In the last days
the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established
as the highest of the mountains;
it will be exalted above the hills,
and all nations will stream to it.
3 Many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the temple of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us his ways,
so that we may walk in his paths.”
The law will go out from Zion,
the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 He will judge between the nations
and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.
5 Come, descendants of Jacob,
let us walk in the light of the Lord.
