Twelve and 1/2 Years Ago...

Pace Community Church began with seven people in my living room almost thirteen years ago. Those seven people were: me, my wife Renae, my mother Jewel, Renae’s mother Carolyn, Renae’s sister and brother in-law DJ & Chuck, and my father (who has since passed away).

I remember the seven of us being in my living room in 1998 and hand addressing more than 5000 envelops that contained an open letter to the community about the beginning of our new church. We were so nervous about launching this fledging church, not even sure if it was going to work out.

We’ve come a long way.

After today’s service, I realized (that even though I’ve always had a vision of God doing great things) I could have never imagined the specifics of what He was going to do through the ministry of this church over the long term. There are so many people who have experienced so many good things through PCC. Today I realized that this church has had steady kingdom impact over the years. We are not a splash in the pan. We are here to stay. Why? God is in this thing.
