Last weekend I was visiting a prior church where I had been a pastor. I had the opportunity to share with people the exciting news about the new church plant in Muskego, and share life with some people who’ve made a major impact in my life.
There was one gentlemen surprisingly touched by the story of what God is doing through Brooklife. I always new him to be a nice man, but I also knew him as a secular humanist. Faith wasn’t his thing, and neither was church. While playing a pastoral role in this church, his wife would visit me weekly to share her ongoing prayer battle for the faith of her husband. I joined her in her prayers, and always delighted when her husband would attend a holiday service or social event at the church.
Would you believe that after sharing what the Muskego Church will be about, he got up quickly, handed me a check, and said, “I want to be a part of your support team.” After a decade of prayer from his wife and this local church, he had given his faith and life over to Jesus.
The first check deposited to the new church is from a secular humanist turned Christian. May many more like him be served as new churches are planted.
