In October, I shared the big news that Holly and I would be moving to North Carolina to pursue a new church planting journey. This was a move that had been in the works for quite some time. I had been dreaming about this day with my best friend, Mitch Lunceford, since our college days. I always had full confidence that he would one day become an incredible lead pastor. So, when he approached me with the news that the dream was finally coming to pass, I knew that this was an opportunity that we could not miss.
On December 1st, Holly and I stepped out on faith, loaded up a U-Haul, and moved to Greensboro, NC to be a part of this new church – Piedmont Chapel. Leaving our home, family, and a full-time ministry position to move nearly seven hours away was a big deal, but it has been so worth it. Being able to build this church from the ground up has been such an incredible process. There’s nothing like seeking God’s guidance for something that’s so much bigger than yourself. We have given more thought, creative energy, and downright hard work to this church than anything we’ve ever done.
I’m happy to report that things have been going great! We have grown our Launch Team to over 30 people and we’re connecting with new families in Greensboro almost daily. People in our area genuinely seem excited when we share our plans with them. We’ve locked in an amazing location for services and we just spent a week with Portable Church Industries planning how to use it to its fullest potential. We’re even pioneering some really creative video elements into our services that I believe are going to help portable churches everywhere. God has truly blessed us and honored our hard work.

With great vision comes a great need for resources. After a lot of planning, we set our Launch Budget at $100,000. As of today, we’re already over halfway there! Please prayerfully consider investing in this life-giving church by helping us fulfill our Launch Budget.
Holly and I put it all on the line to pursue this dream. If you have been blessed by the ministry that we do here at The Creative Pastor, I’d ask you to consider giving to help us turn this vision into a reality. It may be just $5, $10, or $20, but it could make a huge difference to us as we launch this church.
Please keep us in your prayers as we move forward on this great journey. We’re believing God for amazing things as we spread His “love story” in our new city.
