This weekend was an AWESOME weekend at C3 Church!! We were so honored to have one of Matt’s mentors for the past 20 years, Dr. Randy Smith, here with us. Dr Randy was one of Matt’s first mentors in student ministry. When Matt was 21 years old, he worked under Dr. Randy at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia, in the student ministry department. Since then, Dr. Randy has continued to devote his life to youth ministries nationally and internationally. He is the president of Youth Ministry International and has launched programs in several different countries around the globe! While he was here, Dr. Randy spoke to our staff, our leadership college and in our weekend service. He reminded us how big the world we live in really is and how, as believers, we are all called to be world Christians and not just American Christians.
We also held our very first Project 919 Pitmaster Cookoff! We had ten volunteer cooking teams cook pigs through the night on Friday night in order to feed hundreds of families in our community for free on Saturday! It was such an awesome opportunity to serve those in our community who are less fortunate a Thanksgiving meal! Thank you to all who cooked and served to make this an awesome outreach!
