My Greatest Gift

Over our first year at Captivate Church we've seen God do amazing things. The greatest things have been to see 80 people respond on Sunday mornings to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and then to see 25 baptized all before our first year anniversary.

When I returned home from a recent trip to visit one of our great partners- Dr. Johnny Hunt, Mr. Bill Agee and the rest of the FBC Woodstock faith-family, I walked into the hall leading to our downstairs office to find this: Pictures of those we have seen baptized at Captivate Church in this last year.

I stood in awe! This is easily the greatest church-related gift I've been given thus far in the life of our church. The biggest reason is the people pictured in it...

Each of these people is a life that Jesus has transformed!
Each of these people are people who have seen God move in an amazing way. Each of these people represent why Captivate Church exists and why my family moved here to start this church nearly a year ago. This wall also represents the labor and sweat of many people who give and serve at Captivate week after week to make it happen. It is a wall that represents the sacrifices of church members from our amazing partner churches who give their tithes, offerings and time to see Captivate reach Baltimore with the gospel of Christ.
As we approach our first anniversary we have so much to be thankful for. God is moving and we are excited week after week to see his will carried out for the people of Baltimore.

I serve with some amazing people.
Two of them are Mikael and Ashley (who came up with this idea and executed it while I was away). They told me that they ordered extra frames. I tested their faith by asking "How many did you order? How big is your faith that we'll need more?" Lets just say that by their answer (and the size of their order) that they believe God is about to do "immeasurably more than all we would ask or imagine." Ephesians 3:20 type of stuff!

I'm ready. Lets go!

Welcome to a life-giving Church, welcome to Captivate Church!
