Such an honor…

I’m always so thankful for our church, and so proud of my pastor, Steven Furtick.  We’d planned this weekend to baptize about 40 people at the Elevation Matthews campus.

But when Pastor Steven wondered aloud live during the 11:15 Sunday worship experience, “where are the men,” and called for spontaneous baptisms, people got up out of their seats at our campuses all across the city and headed to Matthews to make a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ.

By the end of the day, Campus Pastor John Bishop and his team baptized 203 people.

One of those, was my daughter, Ciara.

These were memorable, beautiful, life-changing moments for our family, and dozens of others.  An incredible day leading up to 3D-Easter, and a glimpse of what’s to come as people across this city invite their family and friends to hear Pastor Steven preach the gospel from breathtaking locales all across our nation.  We can’t wait to see God move this next week.
