I grew up in church and as an adult attended church regularly. It wasn’t uncommon to see me faithfully involved in ministry. Unfortunately I found myself disconnected from church after experiencing a very hurtful time in my life. I begin to feel as though my church attendance was pointless. I had made up my mind that I was done trying and even if I ever found a church home, I vowed that I would never be connected and serve in ministry again. When I first visited Kingdom Fellowship it was April of 2008 and quite frankly I had no intention on being a member. After all I been through, I preferred to be at a church were nobody knew me or my situation. I had been out of church for at least six months before attending my first service at Kingdom. On the ride home I thought about how much I actually missed being in church and I hated to admit, but I looked forward to returning the following Sunday. I thought surely this isn’t the church for me because I knew too many people. As I began to pray for direction, God began to show me how much I needed this ministry and regardless of the state that I was in, I had something to offer this ministry as well. Kingdom was literally my “last chance” church. Being connected to Kingdom has changed my life. I can honestly say I have a relationship with Christ, I am now sure of my salvation, and I’ve learned how to love and forgive not only myself, but those who have hurt me. What a blessing is to be connected to this great church and under the covering of such a phenomenal leader and Pastor, Timothy Findley, Jr. Pastor Tim doesn’t just preach what’s popular, but he literally teaches the Word of God that not only convicts, but transforms lives. Over the years, I have experienced death, job loss after 13 years, and divorce, but the prayers and support that I have received from my church family makes me feel truly blessed. No matter what my circumstance has been, I’ve learned how to continue to praise and worship God intentionally. Yes, even in the midst of it all! Although I have been drug out of my comfort zone, I have the support of a church family that refuses to let me give up or turn back. After 8 years, I am still proud and abundantly blessed to call Kingdom Fellowship Christian Life Center my church home.
