Dear family and friends,
We are excited!
As you can see, we are officially recognized by the state of California as a church.
However, church is more than a name on a piece of paper.
Church is a family who loves, gives, and serves one another.
During the last three months, we completed the legal and business aspects of a new church as we sought to practice what we have learned and received and heard and seen in how Jesus loves and leads his church – purity in will, integrity in words and competency in works.
We want to invite you to be part of this new gospel project called “Center Church.” We call it a new gospel project because we are learning to preach the gospel to ourselves and practice its implications in the season of change and uncertainty.
Two Awesome Stakeholders: Mars Hill Church OC and Village Church of Irvine
Two churches welcomed our family and want to support the new church plant by keeping us above reproach legally and financially, investing in us to raise funds/build website, providing office/meeting spaces, and praying for our marriage, family and the formation of the core group.
I appreciate both lead pastors Nick Bogardus (Mars Hill OC) and Matt Kyser (Village Church) for their friendship, partnership, and investment in this new work.
Become a Stakeholder or a Shareholder of Center Church
One of my favorite stories during this season of church planting happened when we attempted to create the church logo. Our son, Kaden, looked very disappointed that I liked Carol’s design over his design for the new church logo. He really wanted to win.
We pray that you share Kaden’s desire and expectation to win as we ask you to be “shareholders” as you make a monthly pledge or be “stakeholders” as you make a one time gift for this newly forming body of Christ.
We want you to love, give, and serve your local body of Christ first.
Prayerfully consider what cheerful, generous, and sacrificial giving to Center Church looks like and support us. This is how you can give: Write a check!
