Monday evening I had the privilege of leading young man in his early 30s to the Lord.
Awesome! Praise God!
He's been in our church about eight months; wasn't too sure about Jesus. Had a Catholic background and was skeptical about Christianity. He used to do self-meditative Buddhist influenced practices.
Before we got to the prayer- in the conversation, I heard things from him like this:
"Wow, you guys were rockin' on Sunday! That was awesome!"
"Seems like you guys get better every week."
"I've never liked church until here, now I look forward to coming to 'mass.'"
Things in Jason's message on Sunday challenged him. What kind of man to be.
All glory to Jesus for saving this guy- he's a good man that needed Jesus. Now he has Him.
Look who Jesus used.

The worship team- musicians and production alike- set an environment that drew him in, let him forget his previous experiences with church. The loud music, the guitar riffs, the audio-
pointed him to Jesus.
We are always challenging the worship team to excellence. To step up. They should take it as a compliment- I wouldn't challenge them if I didn't think they could do it.
They can, and they have been- the music is better than ever. The vision is step by step being accomplished. We're not done with where we want to get to, but boy are we getting there.
By God's grace and by volunteers who have the "whatever it takes" mentality- who serve humbly, know it's not about them but put the person who needs Jesus before themselves-
Heaven just got a little more crowded, and Jesus used them in the process.
Western Reserve worship team- so proud of you. I believe in you.
Let's keep advancing the Kingdom and seeing Jesus change people's lives.
