There is tremendous opportunity for church planting in the Western States. If you look at the map below you can see how bare the west really is when it comes to pentecostal holiness churches! It is shameful and heartbreaking to see how little we are reaching our own country!
God is putting it in the hearts of young people today to take back the west from the hippies, mormons, muslims, and liberals. I have talked to countless teenagers and young adults who have a burden to see churches started in those vacant spiritual wastelands.
Why can't we see a Pentecostal Holiness Church spring up at the cult capitol of Salt Lake City, Utah, or in the sinful cesspools of Las Vegas, Nevada and Portland, Oregon?
We are actually embarking on several home missions trips to those unchurched areas in the near future, and we would love for the vision to spread and more holiness people to get involved. The board members of Maranatha Missions are planning trips to the oil Boomtowns in North Dakota, and pioneer works in Montana and Spokane, Washington.
If you feel the burden to reach these ruthless regions for Christ then join us in prayer that God would open unto us a window of opportunity before it's too late! I echo those famous words from history - "Go West Young Man, Go West!" There is a harvest field that is wilting while we wait for workers to go and reap!
