Hope Vision: Reprocessing Factory


Two Sunday’s ago, at our church, the leadership team shared the vision of what we believe God has called us to. There are three elements to this condensed into these ‘headlines’ that we are seeking to be...

  • A City of Refuge

  • A Reprocessing Factory

  • Hope Carriers 

Last week we looked at a ‘City of Refuge’, so this week’s it’s a ‘Reprocessing Factory’. At first glance this does not seem like a biblical or church language! However, I’m sure you are aware of what it means to reprocess, recycle or upcycle something? A helpful definition is ‘to process something again in order to reuse it’. This is a very biblical idea as God is in the business or reprocessing people. In the Bible, Paul, an early church leader, wrote to a church he started in a place called Ephesus and said...

Now it’s time to be made new by every revelation that’s been given to you. And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with him! For God has re-created you all over again in his perfect righteousness, and you now belong to him in the realm of true holiness.
— Ephesians 4:23-24 The Passion Bible

God loves to reprocess people, as only He can deal decisively with our past and can transform us for a better future, living free and serving Him! If there are things in your life from your past that affect you now Jesus want to help you!  

The image of a ‘factory’ is one of this process going on methodically and with a regular output. Our desire as church is to partner with God to see 100s of people become reprocessed for good!
