How did God call you to DCPI?
â€œGod called me to DCPI over the period of several years, a couple continents, and an island.
Itâ€™s a long story (and Iâ€™d love to share it with you sometime) but suffice to say I was eager to be engaged in something significant and fulfilling that I could whole-heartedly invest my life into. Having seen the difference that a new church can make in a community, training church planters was a natural fit.
God confirmed that initial calling through His word, friends, and family.â€
What is your personal vision statement or life scripture?
Life Scriptures:Â Deuteronomy 6:4-9 â€“ â€œHear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door-frames of your houses and on your gates.â€
Matthew 22:37-40 â€“ â€œJesus replied: â€˜Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.â€™ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: â€˜Love your neighbor as yourself.â€™ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.â€
What excites you about what God is doing around the world?
â€œGod is constantly working behind the scenes to fulfill His purposes.
Itâ€™s humbling to consider that we have any part to play in that! He is raising up leaders from humble places. He is envisioning, empowering, and sending them just like He did in the book of Acts.
It is an exciting time to be a global believer because communication and technology allow us to be in community with believers all over the world in the midst of joy and sorrow, giving God glory always!â€
What miracles have you seen God perform?
â€œMost of the miracles that Iâ€™ve witnessed revolve around His vision and His provision. Every time someone comes to Christ, it is a massive miracle! Weâ€™re witnessing the undoing of death! I believe that we see miracles around us all the time, we just tend to take them for granted. â€
