Overwhelmed on a Sunday Night

Yup, the perfect word to describe how I feel is…

Overwhelmed. 

It’s been an amazing day! Typically about this time on Sunday nights, I am running on empty…if not completely exhausted!

But, my goodness, I am so excited and so pumped up!!

Honestly, this past week was probably the toughest and most challenging week I’ve ever faced in ministry! It was hard.

But, tonight I’m overwhelmed because God is moving and using our Church to reach people!

It’s just so humbling!

Today 10 people took a giant step in their walk with Jesus by publicizing declaring their faith! That’s JUST AWESOME!!!!! It was awesome to gather together and celebrate them and then we stuck around for a family swim. It was awesome to see so many parents swimming with their kids!! It was so much FUN!!

And then tonight I had the privilege of leading worship at One Youth and to hear students worship is just…well, AWESOME!

Oh…and, today was our highest attended Sunday yet!

How crazy is that?!?

Why does that matter?

Because and to quote Perry Noble…

Every number has a name, every name has a story and every story matters to God!

I am just so thankful to be a part of a church that is focused on reaching people who have given up on God or Church. People are finding and following Jesus and it’s a blessing to be a part!

I am beyond honored to be Thrive’s pastor and it’s a privilege that I don’t lightly!

Oh, lastly…MY GOODNESS! I can’t wait for our next series…

‘Pull your head out of your app’.

Already the buzz for this series has been awesome! I know way too much of my life is stuck in my apps and on my phone and on my computer.

I can’t wait for us to dive in and explore how we can be more connected to God and to others!
