Thank you for answering the call!
I just got back from the Thrive conference and came away incredibly thankful for my senior pastor, John Jackson. He had a vision to plant a church 11 years ago that would take people who thought church was irrelevant to their lives and turn them into fully equipped disciples of Jesus Christ. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that he answered the call God placed on his life...because ultimately it changed my life and redirected my eternity from the gates of hell..into my FATHER's arms. Although I accepted Jesus as my Savior at the age of 16, I had boxed up my relationship, put it on a shelf, and really forgotten it existed...and the truth was that I was in danger of living eternity forever seperated from my Creator. But, when I walked in the doors of Carson Valley Christian center, God took me on a journey that forever altered my life, and transformed me into the woman He created me to be. Sure, I am still on that journey, and have a long ways to go, but I am a new creation, and I now live life with a purpose...EVERY DAY has meaning! I left the conference knowing that God has placed a call on my life too, and I pray that as I answer that call that He will utilize me as His mouthpiece, and bring others unto Himself. I know that through my story, my past pain and heartache...that through that God set me free, and I know that God will use it to set others free. Thank you Pastor John for answering the call!
