I have been attending Fulton Church since I was a small boy. God used Fulton Church to provide me a church family that was critical in my spiritual development. I have served with Awana at various points throughout my time with Fulton – most recently the last few years with the cubbies. I have been with the Deacon and Deaconess Board for the last year.
Has God put anything on your heart for the future of the church?
I deeply desire to see Fulton Church continue to become a body of believers that embody the purposes of Christ. I desire for us to be a fellowship that accepts people wherever they are in their spiritual journey, but also helps them grow under the Lordship of Christ. I desire Fulton Church to be a family that engages in the culture around us – demonstrating to our local communities that Christ can truly transform lives and make them into something wonderful.
As we look to the future, I desire for us to build off of our strengths (like AWANA and commitment to missions) but also expand our ministries. I hope that we can provide discipleship opportunities for all ages. I hope that we can also become a fellowship that is “sent out” into the community just as Christ sent out his disciples to proclaim the good news.
What’s a favorite memory you have here at church?
Oh – there are many. My entire AWANA experience was wonderful – the camp outs, the overnights, the hours of floor hockey and jungle ball in the Fulton Church Gym. All of that was wonderful for a young boy growiing up. I also remember seeing people’s lives transformed – and families being transformed – by the gospel. God has been so good to us here.
How long have you been attending Fulton Church?
I grew up in the church. I spent 4 years in Milwaukee going to college and then 3 years in Milwaukee with my first job out of college. But once I moved back to the Whitewater area in 2000, I found that Fulton Church continued to be a place that ministered to me.
