Last night we celebrated as a church what God has done at NorthStar over the past 15 years!! Hard to believe that much time has passed and so much as happened. 15 years ago….I was 27, Anne was 7 months pregnant with Mary-Michal and Casey was two. Today, I am a quickly graying 42 year old, Anne is (Not pregnant), Casey is 17 and a senior in HS and Mary-Michal is 14 and a high school freshman. We have seen thousands of lives changed, tons of churches planted, lots of good days in families lives and lots of dark days as well. I am so thankful that long before we thought of NorthStar, it was already on God’s agenda. I am so thankful that there was a group of people praying for a church like NorthStar, long before we ever had our first service! We are so blessed and I am so thankful! So thankful that our staff, who could be anywhere in the world leading, have chosen to stand and lead with me at NorthStar!
My children have never known another church and they absolutely love church and think it is the greatest place in the world! Anne & I have our closest friends in the world there sitting beside us every weekend……NorthStar is not where I work & serve….it is my family!!! So thankful for the last 15 and so looking forward to the next 15!
