Brief History Part 3

Ok I’m going to try and wrap it up. Sorry for all the story breaks :-).

So after I left the church I did my own thing for a while…that really wasn’t working out so well.  I kinda hit rock bottom having to move back in with my parents and all.  That was humbling to say the least.  Even then I still wasn’t doing the whole church thing until one weekend my dad asked me to go with them.

I reluctantly went and sat there feeling a little awkward.  The sermon began and John was preaching about the prodigal son.  Talk about hitting close to home.  At the end of the message he had us break up into a few groups and pray for each other.  At the end of that my dad pulled me close and said “He still loves you”  I nearly broke into tears right there.  

I started going back to church pretty regularly.  I was working retail so it was hard to get there as much as I would have liked.  I moved in with my soon to be wife into our first shoebox sized apartment.  I started to play once again on the worship team.  I felt like I found what I had been missing for a while.  Lee stated to sing on the team which was great because we go to do it together (and she’s a reeeeeeaaaaly good singer). 

I began to work on my voice and started leading with Lee in the new “Fireside” service at church.  It was great!  We did that for about a year and I suddenly felt I needed to grow.  I prayed about it for a while.  Sarah, who was overseeing worship at the time, asked if Lee and I would be able to lead at the Auburn site.  We didn’t know she only meant for a few weeks, so we prayed about it and said we’d love to take over there.  Totally not what she meant but it worked out well. 🙂  We have been there ever since and recently moved much closer to be able to become more involved at our site.

So that’s kinda my personal journey.  Now I’m not sure what I’ll talk about next week…AHHHH!
