Today, will be my final Sunday as Senior Pastor of North Church. It's been over twelve years since we first launched a public Service in Craigieburn.
• That's over 600 Sunday Services
• Over 70,000+ seats set out & packed away
• Lots of people who have come to faith
• Many more who have returned to faith
• Something like 50-60 baptisms
• 40 Marriages and a few too many funerals
• Far too many Board meetings
• Hundreds of people through our home
• And lots and lots (and lots) of prayer
• Not to mention the blood, sweat and tears!
North Church is a wonderful Church; it has a heart after God; it has a unique call to serve this community and the wider region; it has a big job ahead of it to fulfil God’s call upon it. My prayers remain fervent for the task ahead and our call remains intertwined: Isaiah 54:2 states, ''Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes."
God Bless, Brett
