One of my great honors was to meet Arnold Gamboa, one of the Pastors from LifeChurch Makati in the Philippines. His YouTube video produced by NetworkChurches.tv really encouraged me say "hey, we can do this". You see, LifeChurch Makati is located in an urban, commercial district in the Philippines. It reminded me a lot of NYC. This was a huge encouragement to me.
I was able to sit down and talk to Arnold who was so humble to answer my questions and really encourage me toward what God was leading us to do in Bushwick. Check out the video that helped me take the step towards planting a Network Church in NYC:
It was an honor to get to get together with Network Church Pastors, some who are five or more years in it, others that just launched two weeks prior. I can't wait for next year already launched and hopefully with some key leaders from Swerve Church!
I'm indebted to Brandon Livingood. Thank you so much for inviting me to the Network Summit and going above and beyond to accommodate me. Thank you to Pastor Ryan who roomed with me and was an ever gracious host. Thank you to all the Network guys for encouraging and praying with me. Thank you to Pastor Craig for his leadership and vision to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ and build up the capital "C" church. Thank you to all the leadership at LifeChurch.tv for the relentless work you do for the kingdom!
Swerve Church is proud to partner with thousands of other churches this year for Operation Christmas Child.
For those who may not know, Operation Christmas Child is a yearly event where literally millions of shoe box gifts are handed out across the globe to needy children.
At Swerve Church we want to lead the way with irrational generosity because we know that it is more blessed to give than to receive. Operation Christmas Child is an opportunity to do just that by packing a shoe box full of gifts for children across the world.
