To the Christian who doesn’t give to their local church

D9A83A86-1F16-47F2-9AEB-C126ACA78C68.JPG

While most Christians delight to give to their local church to provide for their leaders and help fund gospel ministry, there are many Christians who do not give at all. It is often because of one of the following three reasons: 1. I don’t make enough money to give. 2. I give to other missionaries or Christian nonprofits. 3. I don’t get spiritually fed at my church. I ...

Planting Two Churches

Shawn Blog Image 5-15-19

When I came to Eastside Community Church (ECC) as a Church Planting Intern, my objective was to learn all that I could about church planting before “actually” planting. This is definitely an important step in my church planting journey. But what I didn’t realize all along was that everything I did as training at ECC was something I was actually doing for ECC. Every d...

Equip: A New Ministry

ECC-0014

The great commission is a well-known command from Jesus, yet most believers do little to no evangelism. While I think we could all do better at this, I believe that the church leaders all over the states have simply not offered enough training in the area of evangelism. The average attendee is terrified of seeming like a salesman for Jesus, or simply being judged for their...

Life as a New Mom

IMG_0238.JPG

Sam and I became parents at the end of March and there have been so many great days but also some really not great days. There is so much joy in looking into your daughter’s eyes as she is figuring out the world and learning to trust you. It’s so rewarding reflecting back and seeing that (somehow) you’ve been able to take care of her basic needs and your little famil...
