The definition for Therismos (the-rē-smo's) pretty much explains who we are and called to. It is the greek word for "Harvest" (qerismoß), the act of reaping; figurative of the gathering of men and women into the Kingdom of God. We purpose to activate the Church Body and co-labor in the "Harvest" until Christ's return.
TGP was given to Dane and Paola Hall and led by Holy Spirit to minister to the local Church body with the intent of connecting them to the heart of God through prayer, equipping and mobilizing them for the Great Commission of sharing the Gospel of Christ and making disciples that multiply (Matthew 28: 18-20).
We affirm that the church body is a beautiful living, breathing organism that when united and in motion we reflect the light of Christ in the midst of the darkness.
We are Dane and Paola Hall and we are "Ambassadors of Christ" or as some might call us, "home-front missionaries" to the north Houston, Texas area.
The Lord has blessed us with two amazing teenagers and has also given us a ministry of biblical counseling. We come from two different backgrounds (literally!) but have experienced God's amazing and transformative love that united our hearts with His for our family and extending to the Church body and then to our city. We'd love to sit with you and share our full testimony with you! To God be the glory in all of this!
We have a deep love for the Church and have one mission at heart: reconciling people to God and His purposes (2 Cor 5:11, 14-21). However, we know that this can only happen when people learn the good news of the Gospel of Christ and how to follow Him daily. We came to this point in our journey when we realized that like us, our brothers and sisters love God graetly and desire to follow Him, however, very few felt confident in sharing the Gospel and their testimony with others. We sensed God calling us to minister to the Church Body to help them first connect with the heart of God for their community and to help them freely participate in the great "Harvest" the Lord has prepared and reap His blessings.
We love, desire and appreciate your prayers and support to help us continue fulfilling this mission!
We have a responsibility to go to the Harvest and share the gospel with those who are far from God. We were saved not for only ourselves but so others who need God can find Him through us.
"When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers like into his harvest field.”
Our teaching is heavily focused on Jesus’s commands as specific instructions to those who follow Christ to do what He did. We measure success through sharing, discipling, teaching and baptisms.
“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
We share with the people close to and far from God that God desires a relationship with them. Once that relationship is established, He desires for them to partner with Him to share the message.
2 Corinthians 5:18, 19
"All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation."
Jesus left the body of Christ with different offices and it is the intention of this ministry to educate and bring awareness to the different offices and to offer a safe environment for followers advance God’s Kingdom.
“He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe. So, Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
