How I came into relationship with Jesus Christ:
God captured my heart at an early age through my parent’s faithfulness to teach their children the things of the Lord. I was singing “Amazing Grace” one night with my dad when I asked him what a “wretch” was. He helped me understand that I was that wretch, a sinner in need of saving, and that God had sent His Son, Jesus Christ to be my Savior. That night, I received the forgiveness that is offered to everyone, and repented of my sins, knowing that only Jesus Christ could forgive me and save me.
How I came to Harvest:
In the Fall of 2014 I was looking for a church where I could worship, walk with and work for Christ while attending seminary. I fell in love with the heartfelt worship, heard the message boldly proclaimed out of God’s Word, and once I heard the benediction of “You Are Loved!” I knew that Harvest would be the church I would commit to growing and serving in.
What I do at Harvest:
I serve as the pastor of our 20s ministry and fill various other roles.
Why I do what I do:
First reason, I love Jesus! We are given the charge in Matthew 28:19-20 to make disciples, baptize and teach them. It is my desire to glorify the Lord by being obedient to Him in every way, and the fact that I get to fulfill this mission at Harvest is an amazing gift!
At Harvest since September 2014
