One year ago my wife and I decided to step out in faith and follow the leading of the Lord to plant Hope Chapel Metro and this past Sunday we were able to celebrate the first year of a dream transforming into reality. What a night! The night was filled with anticipation and excitement to not only celebrate what God has done in our first year but to celebrate what He will continue to do as the years go by.
I’m so thankful for many things that happened the first year but what truly takes the cake is to see God surround us with so many wanting to see people find hope in Jesus. I still remember when we first started as a small group in our living room (Jay, Josiah, May, Malou, Jem, Mike, Van, Len, Joshua D, Val, Jonthan). Dreaming, Praying, Planning, Contending for God to use us to shepherd a city into a city of hope. Then our friends from Hawaii, DJ & Lynnette, joined the adventure and now the team has grown to over 30 people serving every single weekend. Diligently coming hours earlier to transform the venue into a sanctuary.
To all those who serve at Hope Chapel Metro, my wife and I would like to say Thank You! I’m proud to serve Jesus with you! Let’s keep being messengers of hope!!
