From the bowling league to bowling for Christ, The Good Fight Church looks to expand the footprint of Christ in the Yukon area. The Good Fight Church's church was planted in February of 2015 and was born out of a non-profit ministry. From 2010 to late 2014, The Good Fight Ministries was a ministry with a mission to help people overcome life controlling problems through a Christ centered restoration process. By the end of 2014 this ministry had 6 groups meeting on four different days of the week. There were over 600 people on average a month seeking to restore their lives. As the days, weeks, and months went by, the ministry saw a need within the church to help people not only heal from their life controlling problems, but to heal from past wounds. The Good Fight Church was launched in early 2015 to do just that. Their mission is to make disciples through Christ centered worship, service, and community. Their vision is to accomplish this by focusing on the Head, Hands, and heart. The Head is all about Jesus, the Hands focus on people being the body of Christ through faith, and the Heart helps people focus on healing the wounded heart.
With the help of a core group of faithful ministry leaders, the church was launched on the faith God would provide a future space for the church to call home. For the past several months, the church has been conducting church services on Saturday nights at a local church in Yukon that has opened their building to this church plant. As the months went on, there didn’t seem to be any opportunities arising, until an attendee of the church suggested looking into the old bowling alley on Route 66. With more than enough space and probably out of our price range, the church pursued the option. After prayer, church leadership meetings, and an investor (who prefers to remain anonymous) who believes in the mission, the option became a reality on July 29th. The bowling alley that many people grew up in, and have many memories in, will now house The Good Fight Church!
The Good Fight Church plans on having their new church building open 7 days a week in order to host academic groups, community groups, restoration groups, youth groups, community events, and of course our church service every Sunday! Over the past 4 years, God has changed many lives and families through the ministry and now looks forward to helping establish many more life changing stories by sharing the Gospel through The Good Fight Church!
