Tony & Colleen Mason
(click our picture to support our ministry)
Tony, Colleen, Ruby, Isla, Jovi, and Luna are called to "organize and rally" the people of God to "go forth and be the church". KCN's mission is to reach the lost, disciple the found, and model the Kingdom--a mission of "going forth", sometimes spontaneously and with risk, sometimes cautiously and calculated, but all the time as the faithful representatives of the Kingdom of God. This is why KCN is so thrilled to have the Masons on board; they help us to "Go!" and "be the kingdom". In there own words:
We desire to invite people to the heart of God and build His kingdom by building relationships. Our method is to go and get them...
This mission of ministry moves away from program oriented ministry, where the most visible portion of the church in action is the sign out in front. It is a movement away from “pied-piper” ministry that falls apart when the leadership is dispersed.
We want to be facilitators of the people of God to move outward into communities, to usher in the reign and rule of God and to be physical, tangible evidence of His Kingdom...
Please be in prayer with the Masons as they work with the KCN Team and Mission:Kona Coast to plan and launch a church plant in Waimea. With Tony's broad skill-set and experience and Colleen's unique ability to minister to women in the critical childbearing and childrearing years, the Masons look to launch their church from the ground up--connecting with neighbors in the "grit" of life, and equipping them to be true disciples.
