In one of Jesus parables he told the story of a man who prepared a banquet and invited many guests. At the time of the banquet no one came. The man then told his servants, “Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in so that my house will be full.” Reach 1,000 is Phillips Temple’s answer to this request from our Master to fill His house! 

We at Phillips Temple have forever been changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Master. Our desire is that everyone in our surrounding area of Dayton has that same life changing experience. The Dayton area has well over 1 million people many of whom have never experienced the change that Jesus brings. A large portion of this over 1 million people never set foot inside a church. Our goal with Reach 1K is to fill God’s House with people who can then experience what we have experienced, the grace and peace of Jesus. 

Reach 1K is not about trading members from one congregation to another. We are not about stealing members of other churches. Reach 1K is about those that are unchurched or disenfranchised from church. While we are focused upon reaching 1,000 more people our ultimate goal is not reaching an arbitrary number but reaching people for Christ. Our focus may well be upon a number but we realize that numbers represent people and that is what ultimately counts. 

We invite you to join us in one of our Reach 1K events to discover the excitement, joy and fellowship that we the members of Phillips Temple experience every week!
