As I looked back over the last 12 months, I was amazed at all that God had done in our lives! He has proved himself faithful and walked with us through the dark nights and been there with us as we celebrated new life and growth and change. A few of the big changes in the last 12 months:
- 12 months ago, Ezra church was averaging 71 people each Sunday in the month of March and only had one worship service at one location. This past month, Ezra Church averaged 242 people each Sunday and now has FOUR worship services at TWO locations each Sunday! As the pastor who oversees all our worship and tech, my job has become a lot more complicated in the last year! Now I have to schedule and oversee two different tech teams and two different worship teams each week. However, its been great watching more people get involved in our worship and tech area.
- 12 months ago, I was overseeing 40 people in 4 Growth Groups (small groups). Now we have 85 people in 8 groups! Again- as the pastor who oversees our Growth Groups, things have gotten a lot more complicated but I love seeing more and more people get IN COMMUNITY!
- 12 months ago, I was still in grad school, trying to finish up my Masters in Theology. I graduated last May and it feels so good to have school done!
- 12 months ago we had one kid- and now we have two kids! It was a crazy journey with Becca spending 10 days in the NICU, but God was faithful and he was with us through it all and I believe he healed our little girl.
I’m excited to see what God does in and through our family and our church the next 12 months!
