Why I Love My Pastor #54

Pastor Dustin started pastoring to about 10 folks, already in the twilight of their lives, about 5 years ago. He envisioned God moving in people's lives in a powerful way; moving in the lives of these few folks, their families, the surrounding community, and the city at large. As Dustin always says, the local church is the hope of the world. It is both a place to minister to the needs of the body of Christ and to reach out into the community of irreligious people all around us. Our church is growing by leaps and bounds. Last week, God spoke to over 250 folks at the two morning services. Dustin has incredible vision for how God can work in the lives of those who are coming. More ministry programs are being added to equip this growing community as we step out in faith to bring others to Christ and to minister to one another. It is such an exciting time to be involved and to witness first hand the incredible things God does when we submit ourselves completely to him and the work he has for us to do. Dustin, with his incredible self-effacing and humble manner, epitomizes this submission in all that he does, while igniting others to do the same. God is moving and I am so excited to see where he is taking us as a body of believers, led by an fantastic pastor, as we desire God's will for our lives as individuals and as a corporate body. -Kerry
