Synergy Church

Hello from the Cencebaugh tribe! As most of you know, Karine and I are currently in the process of pursuing the dream that God placed in our hearts more than ten years ago—the planting of a new church in the Bradenton, Florida area. We would like to invite you to take this journey with us, whether it be through prayer, financial support, or even joining the Launch Team. We believe the harvest is ripe along Florida’s Gulf Coast.

WE ARE EXCITED TO INTRODUCE YOU TO SYNERGY CHURCH

The name Synergy Church is based on Ephesians 4:16 which says,

“He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love (NLT).

From this one verse we see a Church that is “healthy and growing and full of love” and is impacting a city with the Message of Jesus! That is what a synergistic church is all about!

SYN·ER·GY is “two or more people working together in order to create something that is greater than the sum of their individual efforts.” Simply put… we are BETTER TOGETHER.

A major thrust of our ministry plan will involve working together with other churches and organizations to:

  • Build healthier families
  • Serve the needs of our community
  • Connect both unchurched and de-churched people to Jesus

Our target area is 77% unchurched with close to 300,000 people who don’t attend church anywhere!

Our heart is to build a dynamic, life-giving, local church that not only teaches the eternal truths of the Word of God but mobilizes individuals and families to live them out in their everyday lives. We believe that the Gospel never changes but the methods that we use to reach people must. Our goal is to create a fun, faith-filled, grace-saturated, loving community that will help people flourish and become all that God designed for them to be.

OUR CURRENT PROJECTS INCLUDE:

  • Building our Launch Team (email James@MySynergy.Church if you are interested in more info)
  • Getting our website up and running. We plan to have it go live Fall 2017, so be sure to go ahead and bookmark http://www.MySynergy.Church and check back soon
  • Connecting with other local pastors and leaders within the area
  • Our marketing campaign & strategy
  • Raising funds for all the equipment and supplies that need to be purchased

We know that we simply cannot do this alone. And while we have always encouraged others to “dream so big that without God it is bound to fail!”, we now find ourselves living this principle out in a very real way. So, WE ARE ASKING YOU TO PARTNER WITH US as we build Synergy Church. Our goal is to raise $50,000 in order to purchase equipment, ministry resources, marketing materials, secure rental facilities and more so that we can launch as effectively and as healthy as possible.

ONE OF THE WAYS THAT YOU CAN BE A PART OF THIS NEW JOURNEY IS BY GIVING EITHER:

  1. A single, one-time gift or
  2. Regular monthly support (whether it be $25, $50, $100 or more per month) over the next 12 months.

  1. Thanks for your website and welcome to our area. I’ve been a pastor in our area for 25 years and I’m doing some research on the Sarasota-Bradenton area. I notice in your site that you say that “only 23% of Manatee County residents attend church any given weekend.” I’ve seen similar reference on other sites and i’m trying to see what source of info this statistic is drawn from. Could you please send me the source of that statistic for my study? I’d really appreciate it! Thanks and God bless! Pastor Tom Wilhoit, Fellowship of Believers church (www.fobfamily.com)

  2. Hi Tom, sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The main source for these findings comes from David Olson, director of church planting for the Evangelical Covenant Church, which you will find at the following links:

    * https://churchleaders.com/pastors/pastor-articles/139575-7-startling-facts-an-up-close-look-at-church-attendance-in-america.html or you can go directly to David Olson’s research site at *

    * http://www.theamericanchurch.org

    * http://www.orthodoxytoday.org/articles5/TaylorChurch.php

    However, I have also received similar findings from a source called Percept Group. The website is PerceptGroup.com or link2lead.com These cost a little more to access.

    I hope these sites help.

    Blessings!

    James
