Our Mission & Vision
The Pathway Church exists to see revival in the church and Transformation in the world.
For our church family, Revival is the continuing and ever-increasing outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the church, making our culture look like Heaven’s culture. Simply put, whatever is in Heaven (joy, healing, salvation, deliverance, community, prosperity, etc.) comes to earth in the Manifest Presence of God!
Transformation is when the church experiences this outpouring and releases it to the world in every area of society. It’s God’s will that every facet of society (Religion, Family, Education, Government, Media, Arts and Entertainment, Business) looks and operates according to Heaven’s values and operation. The supernatural isn’t just for the church, it’s for the world!.
What does Revival look like in the church?
What does revival look like in the church? Here are ten things that we are pursuing as a church family. Although not exhaustive, this is what we feel like the Lord is saying to us!
Revival In The Church:
- People experience the Manifest Presence of God and have regular supernatural encounters with Him, being filled with the Spirit.
- People are hungry for more of God.
- People feel the love and goodness of God and know who they are as Sons and Daughters.
- Healings, supernatural signs and wonders, and prophetic words are common occurrences. Normal, everyday believers are walking in the supernatural realm and carry supernatural JOY.
- People feel at home and like they belong.
- People’s callings and dreams are manifesting.
- People love each other well.
- People are powerful and learn how to manage their lives and clean up messes that they make. They are free and responsible.
- People are abounding financially emotionally, and relationally and live their lives with an open hand.
- People’s lives are marked by Intimacy with Jesus. Lives of worship, prayer, and the word.
What does Transformation look like in the world?
What does Transformation look like in the world? Here are a few things the Lord has shown us to pioneer in our community and society.
- The church is thriving with the Presence and Glory of God and is a healthy church that carries Heaven’s value systems and the supernatural power of God into every society.
- Families are devoid of divorce and children are powerful and have a voice in the home. Homes and families known for love and championing and support instead of judgment, fear, and punishment.
- Education quality and teaching being the best in the world. Systems of education known for promoting kingdom values. Instead of education rates going downhill, they would increase yearly! Miracles would be common in the hallways of our schools.
- Governments that are known for righteousness and transparency instead of corruption and deceit. Legislation that reflects a value for life and betterment of society and other Kingdom values.
- Media that portrays the creativity of heaven and wholeness in families and other peoples lives. Media that documents the supernatural hand of God moving across the earth. Media that’s full of GOOD NEWS instead of bad news.
- Arts and Entertainment that release the glory of God across the earth. Museums filled with prophetic painting. Theaters filled with HIGH QUALITY drama that releases reconciliation. Musicians that release sounds from heaven.
- Businesses that operate without corruption and without taking advantage of disenfranchised people groups. Businesses that are prosperous and bring prophetic solutions to problems in the economic realm and who increase the wellbeing of people as a whole by providing jobs and resources.
How does all of this happen? Through us! We must encounter the King and take His kingdom to all of these areas of society.
The Manifest Presence of God
We are a people who treasure the Manifest Presence of God above all else and desire to host his glory as a way of life.
The Goodness of God
We are a people who delight in the goodness of our Father as He reveals Himself perfectly in the person of Jesus Christ, always willing to save, heal, and deliver and never willing calamity, pain, or destruction for our lives or humanity as a whole.
Intimacy with God
We are a people who pursue knowing Jesus and who minister to his heart with lifestyles of prayer, worship and the word.
We are a family of sons and daughters of God who encourage each other in our divine callings and dreams in order to reveal His likeness and image in every person.
We are a people who equip the saints in the ministry and gospel of Jesus accompanied by signs, wonders, and miracles in order to release the Kingdom of God in our community and around the world.
We are a people who practice radical generosity with every part of our lives. We believe God to increase our Money, Time, and talents as we are faithful to sow them into His Kingdom.
How we got here.
In September 2008, after a great deal of prayer, fasting, and planning, Northwest Nazarene agreed to launch a new work called Pathway Church, to sell its existing church property, and relocate to the FM 2920 area with a portable church system. There was an amazing amount of interest in the property and the sale was complete in late January 2009-right in the middle of the Great Recession!
At the heart of the desire for change was the awareness that a greater and greater percentage of our total income was being directed toward the upkeep of an increasingly ineffective facility. Northwest’s leadership team could no longer justify this use of limited resources…especially in light of the fact that the church was not reaching new people, nor had the financial resources to do so. In short, we longed for the opportunity to invest in people and our community, rather than a building.
March 1, 2009—Our First Worship Gathering
On March 1, 2009 Pathway Church held its first worship gathering as a new church in a new facility…Krimmel Intermediate School. Under the guidance of Portable Church Industries, we learned to setup and take down our new portable system. After a little experience, we learned to transform a school cafetorium into a place of worship and friendship in under 60 minutes! Our setup includes a nursery, an exciting audio/video worship experience for children, a hospitality area, and a worship center.
June 7, 2009—Family Groups
On June 7th we launched family groups. Family groups are a place for people to connect with other people. Family groups meet for 10 weeks at a time (different nights and different homes) with 4-6 week breaks between. These breaks are designed to accommodate naturally busy times for families such as back to school, the holidays, and end of school year. We realize that families need time to be together and celebrate these important moments.
August 2012—A Corporate Encounter With God
In late August of 2012 God met with us in a special way and everyone present experienced the love and presence of God. We love God’s presence and encounter Him as we pray, worship, and receive instruction from scripture.
September 14, 2014—First Annual Spring Family Fun Day
Pathway plans, hosts and teams up with local businesses to put on an annual event for not only the public to enjoy but to bring together the community and to share the love of Christ with them. We provide free food, games, shows and the like for people of every age. There are also monster truck and helicopter rides! An estimated 1000-1500 people from the community joined in the fun.
Spring and Summer 2015—A New Home
Early in May 2015, Pastor Dan stood and declared that by the following week, we would have a contract on a property for lease as a more permanent home for Pathway. Father God had something greater in mind. Seven days later, Pathway had a permanent home and had purchased 2 acres of land with 6500 square feet of office/warehouse space. Over the next several months, the property was landscaped and the interior renovated to accommodate our baby congregation. Almost immediately the congregation more than doubled in size from 30-75 worshippers. On September 13th, 160 people crowded into the new worship center with great celebration and high praise. 400-500 people joined us after worship for free food, games, and an assortment of activities.
2016—A New Grace
2016 found Pathway moving into a new season of growth and encounters with God. So many miracles, healings, and wonders. With a continued focus on the presence of God and his goodness, praise went higher and worship went deeper. God gathered leaders with diverse giftings and graces and began the process of forging us into a company of people that honor the abilities on each other’s lives.
A deeper sense of renewal was apparent and Pathway received numerous prophetic words declaring that we are headed in the right direction. Jenn Miskov, revival historian from Redding, CA, encouraged us by saying, “what you have here is pure and beautiful, don’t change it.”
