I’m proud to work with denominations…
As many of you know, I was raised in a very solid Southern Baptist Church in Paducah, Kentucky. My heritage has been so helpful in developing solid theology, love for people and great leadership practices in me. I have been so blessed to serve with the SBC over the years.
A few years ago, our church started teaming up with both the KBC (Kentucky Baptist Convention) and the Evangelical Covenant Church, a denomination out of Chicago, IL who have done some amazing things with church planting in the past 15 years.
The ECC is small but potent. Theologically evangelical, missionaly aggressive, and ethnically diverse… the ECC has been a wonderful addition to 4 Rivers Church.
But more importantly, it has been a wonderful addition to my life. The times I have spent at events like the Church Planter Training Event in Boston this week have been truly formative for me. I have been overwhelmed with joy and reinergized with vigor for Christ’s calling in my life.
Thank you ECC for being used by Jesus to build spiritual vitality and missional passion in me. Thank you KBC for raising me, teaching me, discipling me and focusing me.
