FREEDOM WEEK is a time to seek God’s presence in our lives. As a church, we set aside a specific time to seek freedom from any unseen walls in our relationship with God and in our lives. Rev. Gaylon Clark is our special guest speaker during Freedom Week.
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.” Isaiah 61:1
This Scripture was fulfilled through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus came to save us, heal our hearts and set us free. However, the enemy works hard to deceive us in ways that keep us from experiencing freedom in Christ. We struggle to accept the truth of our identity in Christ and we try to heal our own hearts and change our lives apart from Christ. Walls are created in our relationship with God and we don’t experience the depth of His love and grace.
So what is freedom? Webster’s dictionary defines freedom as the liberation from slavery or restraint from another power. Although this is a good definition, it is missing the “personal” piece. Freedom is more than liberation....freedom is a gift given to each one of us. Freedom is God’s gift to every believer that tears down the Walls in our lives so that we can live the life we were created to live.
Why do we need freedom? We need Jesus to heal our brokenness and set us free from the enemy’s lies so that we can experience true freedom. As Jesus heals our hearts and sets us free, our lives are transformed by His grace. Our transformed lives impact our homes and community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Join us as we explore the journey to Freedom together!
Lead Pastor of Greater Mount Zion Church
Gaylon Clark has had the joy of spending 28 years with the gentlest soul on the planet, Kathy Clark, his wife. They have one adult son, Michael, who enthusiastically honors his parents. To this small nuclear family God has added a large family of faith, Greater Mount Zion Church of Austin, Texas. Pastor Clark has served GMZ as Lead Pastor for 18 years and sees pastoring there as his life’s work. In college he dreamed of pastoring one church his whole life. God is turning this dream into reality. Under his leadership the church has grown to over 3000 members; launched Circles of Greatness, their small group ministry; adopted 8 Great Causes that address the hurts and pains of urban people; built a medical clinic in Kitale, Kenya; and completed the construction of a new 1200 seat worship center in November 2016. Pastor Clark is also leading GMZ to actively fulfill the Great Commission alongside other churches linked through Christ Together Austin, a coalition of pastors and churches who have made a covenant to reach every man, woman, and child in the Austin area. Pastor Clark is passionate about life-oriented expository preaching, small group communities, mentoring and teaching men, and city transformation. “Life is about relationships … the rest is just details.” This quote by Gary Smalley summarizes for Pastor Clark a biblical view of life, ministry and evangelism. He is a graduate of Dallas Baptist University and Dallas Theological Seminary.
