On August 12, we announced Reality LA is inheriting the people, ministries, and buildings of Hope International Bible Fellowship. While we will still have Sunday gatherings at Helen Bernstein High School, we believe this is a monumental provision from the Lord in our putting roots down in our city and in catalyzing the unique vision and mission God has given us in Los Angeles.
The process of becoming a single family will be one of both preparation and transition, with the ultimate goal of unification. Preparation will mean a season of prayer, listening, and learning as we discern how to continue and grow the beautiful work being done by Hope IBF. Our heart for this transition is that it be a healthy one resulting in lasting unity! Some Sundays we’ll talk about different aspects of the process — you can find all those videos below (we recommend starting with the two-minute video above, then the original announcement sermon) as well as ways to pray and answers to many frequently asked questions.
Praising God for his provision and pursuing healthy unity through prayer is one of the most powerful things you can do. Let’s be disciplined in praise! Pray that the Lord will guide us through this process, give us humility and a sense of responsibility as we inherit everything from Hope IBF, and use it all for his glory. We’ll continue to give you new ways to pray as they arise
