My calling to plant a church has been a journey that I reluctantly accepted. For many years God has used so many people to shape my life. I have received prophecies in regards to my calling but it was thirteen years ago, while my wife and I were leaders at the Summit Church in Madison, Virginia, when Pastor Mark Decourcey sent me to a conference in North Carolina. This is when the calling to become a pastor became clear to me. I knew then that we were called to start a church that will be committed to cultivating and developing relationships with a mindset of doing life together. Even though we live among a society that is still very segregated and rooted in religious traditions, we are dedicated to creating a community that will love God and love one another. Philippians 4:13 says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
