The Story of The Uprising
The Uprising is a GATHERING designed to FOSTER community among Christ followers, FACILITATE teaching, EQUIP leaders and FUEL a passion to RISE UP
The Uprising began in 2012 with over 140 volunteers, 30+ sponsors and partners and 1,200 attendees. The participating bands included the Matt Earle Band, Surge, Gifted Wings, Written in Red, Cleanzed Soul, Blank Pages, the Beautiful Refrain and Seventh Day Slumber. AC Green was the keynote speaker.
The chief purpose of the Uprising is to REACH and CONNECT.
It is our desire above all to reach those who do not have a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, and connect with fellow believers in our region.
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
1 Corinthians 12:12-20
12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 Fore we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body - whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free - and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15 Now if the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason stop being apart of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
