The other night I sat in Now or Latte’ drinking a cup of coffee with Pastor Scott Fussnecker from the Foundation Community Church. This night was more than a cup of coffee and some great conversation. It was a milestone in a journey for God that Jules Smith and I both have travelled. Less than two years ago, Jules and I met in a congregation of more than 2,000 people. From there, we began to drea
m about playing music and that led to wanting to be apart of the worship team at that church. We also wanted to be more apart of the church and that meant more than just volunteering, we wanted more responsibility and ownership.
In the meantime, Faith Passage was born out of our desire to praise God, fulfill our music desires, and to hopefully reach our community of Trenton, Ohio and provide needed support. We also tried to find our place at the church we were attending and nothing seem to fit and we continued to seek. With FP, we were able to create a couple of events and give back to our community but we knew it wasn’t enough and our falling short of our expectations left us disappointed in many ways. But we still moved forward and kept our faith and we believed.
God continues to teach us patience and even though we fight against it he showed us in many ways that if we allow him to guide us and if we have faith he will reward. So why the choice to title my blog post?
The coffee shop that we sat in was the first place FP played at the start of our journey. Not only am I talking to a pastor of a church, I am talking to the pastor of the church we call home and we are actively involved in. My role being the Administrator and Jules as the Children’s Ministry director. We also have been giving the opportunity to lead worship and we hope to inspire those that hear the worship teams music. Also, the church is located in Trenton, Ohio where we began and we are now leveraging to give to the community more that FP could give alone.
The magnitude of where we are today never hit me until that night. God had a plan and we followed. We worked, we prayed, and we believed. He delivered. We are in awe that in just under two years we have come “full circle”.
