Story Saturday- Christ Church Going Global

Hi Friends,

As you know, last week I had the joy of being at the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s conference with our two pastors in training, Sam Cardillo and Steve Crowell.  It was a wonderful time of refreshing as God used the teaching we heard and fellowship we enjoyed to greatly strengthen us in the work of ministry.  I was privileged to be asked to share some testimonies about what the Lord is doing at Christ Church at the closing session.  I stood up before pastors from all over the world and talked about the miracle that God is doing in Ethlyn’s life, the conversion of Jesse and the faithfulness of Kate as she reaches out to her block.  I was limited in time, but I could have gone on and on about all the work that God is doing in your lives.  By God’s grace, many people shared with me about how these testimonies stirred they were to continue to be faithful to the mission that God has given His church.  Several people told me that they shared these stories with their churches this past Sunday. And so, God’s work at Christ Church was talked about in places like Juarez Mexico, Cebu Phillipines and Hamburg Germany.  Isn’t that amazing?  Our little church is getting talked about and celebrated around the world.  That made me think about how much more so God must celebrating in heaven what He is doing here in South Philly.  I know that for me life can seem so small, growth so slow and miracles very few.  I hope that we all step back for a moment and consider the truly amazing things that are going on in our lives and the lives around us.  God is worthy of worship for the good work that He is doing in each one of you.

I’m just so grateful that I get to be part of this community on a mission with you!

Grace and peace,

Pastor Jeff
