This past Sunday our newest church plant, Element Church, had their first Baptism Service. Rich Jones and his team did an awesome job with the service and made quite an impact!
It is so rewarding to see all that God is doing through Element in the community of Millvale. It was only a little over a year and a half ago that we started with about 5-6 people meeting every week in a Subway restaurant. Sunday there were over 100 and they baptized 12 people!! In addition to that, they had 7 more people respond to an invitation for salvation. God is up to something big in Pittsburgh and I feel so blessed to be part of it!
For those that might be new church planters or are considering church planting, this is what it’s all about. It’s not about all the accolades that might come with your Grand Opening or recognition you might receive because of the size of your Sunday morning service…it’s about lives that have been changed! If you find yourself trailing off track, use this as a great reminder of what can and could be in your church!!
