A tsunami is coming

…the force of which will transform Jesus’ church

WARNING: We are approaching a monumental transformation

not seen since the Great Reformation of the 16th century, and it will sweep away traditional church forms and structures once taken for granted. The question is, “How do we prepare for what’s about to come?”

The church is called to make disciples, not members. We must now refocus on Jesus and His Word, in love and by His Spirit. In the midst of this impending spiritual battle, we must equip a new generation of followers of Jesus to lead people to higher ground.

And we are looking for allies…

Are you an Ally?

YOU MAY BE AN ALLY

If you are…

  • Passionately in love with Jesus.
  • Hungry for God’s Word.
  • Called, emboldened, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

And you realize…

    • The church needs to change.
    • We are in a spiritual battle.
    • It is urgent to reach the next generations.
Who We Are

Church Awake is a ministry that talks with our Allies about the coming tsunami of church change. We are helping to fulfill the Great Commission by supporting the next generation of leader-believers in making and multiplying disciples one heart at a time.

Our Mission

The mission of Church Awake is to engage allies for the coming tsunami of church change so that we are better prepared when it comes.

The mission of Charlotte Awake is to multiply disciple-making communities of believers one heart at time.

The mission of Wisdom of Old “Soles” is to walk God’s path together with the next generations.

Our Vision

We envision a healthy church functioning as organic networks of networks who make and multiply disciples one heart at a time by decluttering church.

 

What We Ask

We are looking for allies who are called by God to engage this coming tsunami of church change.

What We Offer

We offer connections to other allies, prayer, teaching, insight, and training to be small, interconnected, decluttered “Clusters” of believers.

What We Believe

Your biggest question is probably whether or not we’re legit. We affirm standard orthodox doctrinal statements like the Lausanne Covenant.

But maybe a shortcut would be for you to know that Pastor David Ingrassia received his degrees (1984, 2012) from Dallas Theological Seminary.

If that means anything to you, then you recognize we are theologically conservative. Yet, decades of ministry allow us to stretch very far and to love the church in all our distinctives.

Congregation Clusters

Congregation Clusters

“Congregation Clusters” are church plants.

Below are links to our podcasts the Clusters ministry outside Philadelphia. These are parts one and two of a three-part interview with Joey and Meredith Ingrassia.

We are also sharpening our terminology. We continue to call the regular groups who gather around the Word to make disciples, “Clusters” or “Bible Clusters.” But those groups that are church plants we now call “Congregation Clusters.” What makes a Cluster a congregation is when at least these three characteristics exist:

(1) They recognize themselves as a congregation.
(2) Spiritual gifts function to build the body up in love.
(3) Biblical leadership emerges.

You can always find our weekly podcasts either on Spotify under “Charlotte Awake” or on our website for our allies (https://churchawake.org). 
Note that the allies website is Church Awake, not Charlotte Awake.

Do You Love Me?

Do You Love Me?

Yet, if we listen closely, the question they ask most often and in innumerable ways is: “Do you love me?” Every other question comes in a distant second.

Maybe that should not come as a surprise. We have become aware that history’s most technologically connected generation paradoxically shows signs of being the most disconnected from personal relationships.

It’s not that this generation lacks face-to-face human contact. It’s that the ubiquitous microchip technology shapes their understanding of reality. It simultaneously connects them online while tending to disconnect them from one another.

Time’s Up!

Time’s Up!

It’s not enough time for a cup of coffee.

The tide is out. The signs are present. The earth is shaking. The tsunami is coming. What can we do in fifteen minutes? What can we do in the urgency of the time when it feels like all we can do is run and hide?

Podcast

Church Awake is a ministry of Charlotte Awake. For the moment, this podcast below is the Charlotte Awake podcast that relates to our specific ministry of multiplying disciples in Clusters as the organic Body of Christ (as opposed to Sunday Morning Church). Church Awake will have its own podcast soon. It will replace what is below and you will also be able to find the Church Awake podcast on Spotify.
