Our Family Is Growing - Brad Wilkerson

We've recently completed membership interviews with several people and I've asked some of them to talk about why they've become part of the Christ Church family. Here's Brad Wilkerson's story:

I started coming to Christ Community last fall.  I had been going to the same church all through college, but I looked up and realized that I had become very disconnected.  Also, I saw that most of the people with whom I had the closest friendships were at Christ Community.  So I started visiting sporadically and I just felt like there was a sense of family at Christ Community that I wanted to be a part of.  I took a couple months to think and pray about it and started really considering switching permanently.  I remember talking to John Evans about my decision one night and he told me, “Sometimes you just have to act and give God an opportunity to bless you.”  So I acted and God blessed.

In the past few months that I’ve been attending Christ Community, what I saw and longed for last fall is exactly what I have become a part of - a family.  It has been such a blessing to be able to do life and worship God with people who love me and encourage me.  I look forward to the worship gathering every Sunday because I know that I am going to hear the gospel and be reminded that I am free to love because I have been loved first by God.

Recently, I have started working at the church office as the “office manager.”  It is really cool how God provided this job for me, and I have enjoyed getting to know and work with Matt, Aaron, Justin, and Philip.  It’s so good to have godly, older men as friends to pour into me and teach me.  I have much to learn, but it’s been fun so far.
