Easter was incredible. Today we started our sixth service time for Elevation Church making that four at Providence Campus and two at Butler. I’m officially wiped out. I don’t know how my volunteers do this week after week.
The big news was of the 4,800 people who attended this morning over 500 of them walked out of our doors filled with life in Christ. That’s right! Over 500 people today alone in our services made Jesus their own personal God. By the way, that’s a conservative estimate and I think it’s the number of people who actually indicated on a card and not just how many hands we think we counted.
We had around 560 children in our church today as well. I’m so proud and humbled by the hundreds of people who make EKIDZ happen each week. I especially want to thank the many people who adjusted their family Easter time to serve at our 11:30 or 1pm services. I know how precious family time is and I’m impressed by your example to serve God.
Anita, the girls and I are headed out tomorrow to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I’m speaking at the Submerge Camp. My old friend Travis Agnew puts this camp together and I can’t wait to spend some time with him and a bunch of teenagers. Please pray that God would speak through me to change the lives of these students and encourage the adults working in their churches. Please also pray for me as I’m away from Elevation for the first time since around Christmas. God is doing a lot in my heart and I feel like I need some time alone with Him.
I’m going to miss working in the office this week and hanging out with our Charlotte friends but I’m so thankful that my church allows me the opportunity to build up the Kingdom apart from the walls of our gatherings. Have a great Easter evening!
