Jon Rogers said it best, “It hasn’t been four weeks of my life, it’s been four years of relationships and support.”
For me, between two trips, it’s been a year, but I can’t believe I’ve only been a part of this family for such a short amount of time. I had been on staff at Calvary for about two years before I heard about Creative Missions, which pairs creatives with under-resourced churches to help them communicate the gospel through sustainable websites, graphics, tech solutions, and social media strategies. I got invited to be a part of the team last May in Anchorage, Alaska. I felt God’s call to go, and also heard him telling me, “this is just the beginning.”
As a church communicator, it’s easy to fall into the mindset that everything you do is about making your church the best, the largest, and the newest – except we forget the gospel and what God is doing in churches around the world along the way.
“This trip allows you to see all that God is doing. When you’re behind the monitor remember, God is working these huge things together and holding them in his hand.” – Eric Murrell
I was able to see God at work from February to May.
All in all, 30 creatives created solutions to help 20 churches and ministries communicate the gospel to Baltimore.
Churches in Alaska are still using new logos, websites, and welcome videos to preach the gospel to Anchorage.
Pray for Creative Missions as we follow where God is moving in 2015.
Thank you to anyone who has supported me financially, offered encouragement, or prayed for me and the teams on both trips. I thank God for you.
Thank you to my boss, John Boyle, and the leadership of Calvary for empowering me to go work on projects at other churches without taking vacation time. I’m so thankful to be on staff at a church that teaches and lives out the gospel in all ways. Calvary truly believes the name is Jesus and not Calvary Bible Church.
