The End of A Journey

Aaron MartinFaith0 Comments

In December 2015, Emily and I officially started walking down the road to adoption. We started that journey in faith, but not without some measure of trepidation and anxiety. We’ve always been open to adoption, but stewarding a full, busy, noisy home of four children made us a bit fearful about whether adoption would be a wise decision for our … Read More

There are three main components of our discipleship strategy at CBC: corporate gatherings, small groups, and missions. Each has unique contributions to discipleship that the others simply cannot contribute. For instance, the expositional preaching and corporate worship are contributions that we benefit from in our corporate gatherings but can’t experience in the same way through small groups or missions. Small … Read More

The thirty-first of July will officially mark the end of my first year of pastoral ministry at Community Bible Church. Anniversaries are similar to birthdays in that they are a measurement of time, and in measuring time, we are afforded the opportunity to reflect upon all God has accomplished in our lives over the past year.

I turned forty-three years old this week. Mentally, most days I feel like I’m still twenty-two or twenty-three years old.

Some … Read More

Our Living Hope

One October when I was a little girl, I was banned from the laundry room because my dad was working on a top secret Christmas present. For ME. The door was closed and when he was behind it I would hear clanging and racket that delighted me, while at same time the suspense was consuming me. It was as if … Read More
