Which aspect of Christ Community Chapel’s culture resonates with you the most? (know, grow, serve)

Serving in a ministry prior to CCC, I had learned to serve God in whatever way necessary, and I enjoyed that. However learning more and more about God, I’ve discovered that growth is of the utmost importance. One cannot grow in the kingdom without first knowing about the kingdom. And the by-product to both of these is to use the knowledge and application to serve God with everything that is within us.

What is something no one would ever believe to be true about you?

I actually grew up shy. As much as people engage with me, and I with them, when I tell people I used to be shy, it seems unheard of or unthinkable.

In what ways are you a leader? In what ways are you a follower?

Not trying to sound too “spiritual” or religious, but to me, life is a big game of follow the leader. When we allow for our light to shine for God, people will almost certainly desire to follow your lead, because they see his character portrayed in your life. Learning to follow can be a big decision that we make consciously or subconsciously, and as long as I am following someone who is leading with Christ’s attributes, I am ok to follow any day.

If you could master one skill you don’t have right now, what would it be?

The one skill I desire to master is winning souls for the kingdom. That’s kind of loaded, but nonetheless, a skill that is desired to be more effective when talking to perfect strangers.

What are you doing when you feel most like yourself?

I am most like myself when I am teaching. On the job I held, I always found myself to be teaching different skills we had to perform at work, and I love seeing people progress in their level of understanding by your efforts. Teaching in a closed setting, one on one is most like me. I enjoy the challenge to teach various subjects, from working with my hands to teaching my children how to ride their bike, it’s fun and rewarding to see the light bulb illuminate.
