December End 2019

Church,

What a year 2019 has been!! Can I get a C’MON!!!!

Weekly we are seeing lives changed in all age groups in our church, seeing them follow through in obedience of baptism and begin to be discipled. Church, my family and I can’t be more thankful that the Lord allowed us to come and pastor this great church in 2019!! God works in such amazing ways! I remember Rob Hunt, one of our church members, saying to me as I was preaching at Falls Creek back in October of 2018 “I have a church that you need to Pastor.” Then the infamous phone call came in January 2019 from our Pastor Search Team Chairman, Rhys Cole, that said “Hi Brian, this is Rhys, give me a call.” And now the rest is history!!! God only knows what tomorrow holds for us church, so let’s be faithful with what he has given us today.

2019 has been a special year in the life of our church:

  1. It’s been a year of Growth. We have seen our church grow by 14% in 2019! Since July, we have seen our church grow 36% with about a 10% growth rate per month.  

 

  1. It’s been a year of Life Change. We have seen over 50 baptism’s in 2019, along with seeing all ministries in the church see kids, students & adults come to know Christ weekly.

 

  1. It’s been a year of Change. Jennifer, McKenna, Parker and I had the opportunity to join the church in June as God led our family here for me to become the Lead Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church. The Lord has given us a great vision and direction and it is amazing to see God’s faithfulness through the change that we’ve experienced and all the Lord is doing in the life of our church.

 

  1. The Start of Growth Track. This year we launched our new 4 week, ongoing class so that everyone who comes can get connected, join the church, find a place of service, get plugged into a small group and begin to take their next steps through Growth Track. We have seen over 50+ people go through Growth Track, and 34 of those people have completed all four weeks since we launched Growth Track in September, 2019.

 

  1. A new church mission statement. We have declared that as a church, “Together We are a Reaching, Discipling and Sending church impacting generations for Christ.”

 

  1. Taking our outreach to our community to a level. Through our outreach to our local schools and the community, Trinity has invested in our community in a big way in 2019 by giving and going every week.

 

  1. Financially the Lord is blessing us through our obedient giving. We are extremely thankful the Lord has brought us ahead of budget in 2019 and God has given us a great vision to invest in. Let’s be faithful as we end the year in our giving, along with our end of the year giving. Let’s not let up in our commitment to live obediently unto the Lord when it comes to our giving over these last few weeks of the year.

 

I could list so many things the Lord is doing through our church along with sharing hundreds of personal stories of how God has used Trinity Baptist to impact individuals and families all over our community. It truly is a HUGE blessing to Pastor Trinity and I am so thankful to be a part of all God is doing in our midst. Let’s keep going church!!! I can’t wait to see all God has in store for 2020! Thank you for being such an amazing church in living out your faith as Kingdom Influencers day after day throughout our community.
