I love my Church….UNLEASH!

Who grew up in Church background?  Was it received well? Who went through the motions because you wanted to honor your parents?  OR maybe you’ve never heard of God’s word and what he has done for each and every person.  No matter where you are in your walk with God or your knowledge of his promise I would encourage you all to try something NEW and SPRING your faith to an all time high!

Growing up in a very strict Baptist Church I not only attended the services each week I was enrolled in our Churches school system for the majority of my childhood.  FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) when I moved to public school plaid a huge role in my high school career and after we all graduated and moved on with our lives my support system was no longer. As many do I fell off track time and time again in my walk with Christ but I never turned my back, I personally needed a support system with others to hold me accountable and encourage me to keep God at the forefront of my life.

At 29, God FINALLY blessed me with the ONE thing I had always envied and wanted most in life…my soon to be wife!  She was originally from North Carolina and after a year of dating she starting hinting about moving back home…..there was NO WAY I was letting this one go!  So we packed up on my 30th birthday and we left from the VA/DC area and landed in Greenville, South Carolina about an hour from her parents.  A few months in I heard a knock at our door and it was a young married couple around our age that wanted to welcome us to the neighborhood.  After spending some time with them they invited us to attend their Church….NEW SPRING.  As we passed through the doors of a large convention center I felt like I was walking into a concert or a ball game with the amount of people filtering in; leaps and bounds DIFFERENT from my small country Church I grew up in.  

NEXT…smoke machines started, loud LIVE music began thumping and the NEW SPRING band brought the house down with some of the most talented musicians I had ever seen (and I was a huge music buff.)  I didn’t know how to react other than in my mind LOVING what I was seeing but judging this to NOT be how GOD tells us we should worship…..I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG!!!!!!!

Then, Pastor P (Perry Noble) walked out on stage!  DUDE was in a T-shirt and jeans…again I began having negative thoughts…(derived from what I was told my entire life of wearing your absolute best in Gods house.)  I feared the worst….I leaned over to my fiancé and said “guarantee there will be no scripture read and this guy will be more of a motivational speaker which is not how we grow as Christians.”  Pastor P blew my socks off….scripture, theory, great jokes to keep our attention, he walked side to side on the stage and was immensely captivating….I WAS FLOORED!

NOW…my Pastor….Pastor Perry Noble has written a book….a book where he will NOT see a dime of the profits, THAT will go right back into the Church.  The reason I say that is because my experience has seen a majority of Pastors ridding the coat tails of GOD to become rich for their own gratification.  This spoke volumes when I heard Pastor P was going to use the money to reach more people for God! This book will inspire, motivate and derive passion in the Lord.  A book that tells us simply existing isn’t living and GOD has a plan for each one of our lives.  Every person has a name, every name has a story, and every story matters to God.   Its time to start living and living passionately through GOD, for GOD, and with GOD.  Go pick up a copy today and let God do work in your life because “you can’t do life alone.”  http://unleashbook.com/buy
