Even though I spend a lot of time on the road, I am committed to investing in my own home church @ccchuntersville and likewise, having them invest in me. A few ways I am being intentional in this are:
-serving on pastoral leadership
-discipling younger men once a week
-lending my writing and preaching skills when needed
-attending every Sunday that I am home
-attending a men’s small group/family small group
This list is not to toot my own horn, but to encourage you who have the privilege to attend your church every single week to do so with excitement! There are many ways to get involved, even if you are gone 90% of the time like me! Let the time you are there really count!
My life is better for being at Christ Community and I miss it when I am gone. I am encouraged as a man, husband and father. My pastor, @ronnieparrott seeks to use me in the areas I am naturally gifted in. And pouring into younger men greatly enriches my life and holds me accountable in my own walk with the Lord.
All these things make me grateful for my church and for all your churches I get to partner with to further the gospel. This is a great time of year to get re-involved in your own church or finding a faithful one to join. I hope you do just that and are blessed by it.
