I was being interviewed for a position with a church in Indianapolis a couple of years ago. The pastor reviewed my resume and asked a unique question.
“Which of the churches you have worked for best represent who you are”
“None of them really” – Me
“Really? You’ve spent your whole life working for churches that are not like you? That is sad” – Pastor
I don’t think you are suppose to have a major life crisis during a Skype interview, but I was having one. I remember just wanting to shut the computer and stare at the wall. I finished the interview knowing that his question was more important than the position they were trying to fill.
Honestly I never thought I would be at a church that would line up with who I am. My values, ideology, philosophy, etc. Considering all mainline denominations are dying, I always thought I would be working in churches different than me trying to helping them transition into reaching their community- with probably little success.
I am so thankful for Connect Christian Church. They were an answer to our prayers. Connect has been a blessing for our family. We have seen God work in an amazing way in just 4 months.
The reason is that who I am and who Connect is – fits. In every way Connect is a representation of what I believe church should be. Instead of fighting silly battles, we are working toward reaching our community for Jesus. Connect has made drastic changes in 3 years all to help reach those don’t have a relationship with Christ. I believe our area would miss Connect if we didn’t exist.
I’m thankful for our Connect family.
