It’s hard to believe that it was 12 years ago that God began
to stir my heart to plant a new church. 
And then a few months later we moved to Johnston County, NC to plant
Cleveland Community Church now known at C3 Church. When we arrived there was a Dream Team that helped us unload our U-Haul trailer with all of our

Ps Matt (2) Here is a picture of me from the early days when we met in the Elementary School.

Just a few weeks later in October of 1998 we had our kick off
service with about 167 people in attendance at the Cleveland Elementary School.
From the beginning until now we have been blessed with a dream team of
volunteers who serve faithfully every week so that we can provide real hope for
real people in a real world.  One
of the comments I hear often from guests is how many volunteers we have serving
and how friendly everyone is. 

Several years ago I was at a roundtable with John
Maxwell and I heard him say that, “Teamwork makes the Dreamwork” And that is so
true! Martha and I feel like we are living the dream that God has for us and
for our community!  Already this
year since January we have had over 700 commitments for Christ and over 300 of
those are for salvation. Every life that is changed, every family that is put
back together, every child that is impacted, every hurting person that is
served with God’s love happens because of YOU.  

Tonight we will gather for our annual DREAM TEAM PARTY.  It’s just a small way to express our
appreciation for your servants heart and “whatever it takes” attitude.  Martha and I love you so much and pray
that God will pour out a Malachi 3 blessing on you big time. See you tonight!
