I am not on staff at a church.

Posted: May 17, 2009 in Cool Stuff just for you

Hey everybody!

I hope things are going well for you!  I had to laugh when we got a phone call from a friend of ours that heard that Amy and I were on staff at a church in South Aberdeen. 

Nope. 

I still have a dream to share the message of Jesus with the world in a practical and geniune way without church politics.  So I am still doing the Take Him With You Podcast.  Click here to listen. I have also made myself available to do voice overs, music for podcasts, radio shows and voice mail.  I even speak at gatherings if folks want me too.  I can lead worship, preach, share or even host events. 

But I’m not on staff at a church.  I have my own business called Moyer Multi Media LLC. 

Amy got a job doing data entry from home to help pay the bills, and I am believing God for folks to come along side us in the vision to reach around the world with the podcast.  We could really use the help.  We are selling subscriptions to our weekly electronic newsletter for $20 or more a month.  It’s really had a great response, but we need more subscribers to offset our bills. The podcast is free, but the living expenses aren’t!  🙂  We are doing this by faith because we felt that I was called to reach more people with a message of hope and encouragement.  Click here if you want to help with supporting us. Or click here if you want to sign up for the weekly newsletter.  We aren’t non profit, we are a business, so you don’t get a tax write off, but you can help reach people that would never set foot in a church.   Oh, and if you can’t afford the weekly newsletter, sign up anyway, we can believe by faith that God will help you down the road and you can catch us later on the cost.  I don’t want anyone to miss out on being encouraged.   It just really helps us pay the bills at home.

People have been curious as to WHERE we are going to church.  Our family has landed at Connection Church in South Aberdeen.  We are friends with Ryan and Angela McCullough, the pastors of the church- they are a young family with a passion to reach people for Jesus.  We also dearly love Korista Lewis, the youth pastor there.  She is really cool.  We have been attending since January.

As to why we are there:  We feel like our family needs some time to just fellowship and enjoy the presence of God with no church politics involved.  The vision that Ryan and Angela have is very similar to what Amy and I have- to reach people in a real, genuine way with the love of Christ in a practical and life changing way.  We are not on the leadership team.

The meetings are not what I expected.  They are much more laid back and informal, with the emphasis on connecting with God and others.  I love it.  There are a lot of young families with hopes, dreams and ambitions.  They all seem to really love God.  The church meets in a renovated building on South Side.  120 West Curtis.  It’s set up like a Starbucks.  Yeah, no kidding.  It looks and feels kind of like that.  A lot of volunteer hours have gone into it, and it’s nice.  It’s a work in progress too.   If you live in the area and don’t have a church home already, come give it a try.  I think you will like it.

It’s not at all religious, and everyone is welcome whether you have a background in church or not.  Get this, they don’t pressure any of us for money.  I mean you can tithe and give if you want too, but there isn’t even an offering time.  The offering box sits on the coffee bar.  If you want to give you can.  From time to time needs are made known, and God meets them right in front of our eyes each week.  Pretty cool.    There is time to talk around tables, have a cup of coffee and then some really good worship music.  The message usually follows after some very heart felt prayer.  Then we talk some more and share with each other.  It’s very nice.   11 a.m. on Sunday morning.  There is room, but not for long.  We just moved in and will be filling it up shortly!  🙂  That is a good problem to have though. 

So there you go.  No more rumors please.  This is straight from the horses mouth!

Bless you and if you have any questions, feel free to email me.  rick@takehimwithyou.com or amymoyer@techline.com
