After talking with Brent for only a few minutes you will recognize he is one of the kindest people you have ever met. His kindness is evident in everything he steps into, with honor wrapped in every conversation and towards every person. This is all because of his love and reverence for the Lord.

It seemed fitting to have Kira for our Faithfulness video, but more than just being the church member who has been with us the longest, she is faithful to everyone and everything in her life. While having a full-time job, volunteering 3 times a week at church, and fostering two children on top of two she already has, she continually amazes us with her devotion to the Church and ministry to the Lord. Her fruits are a result of staying close and tender to the person of Jesus.

Michelle serves in Thrive Kids with a calm and gentle attitude. Whenever you have a conversation, herrestful personality brings us to a space of transparency and tenderness, she attains this from the guidance of the Holy Spirit’s fruit of Gentleness.

The way Marisa holds her composure with confidence in the authority of Jesus inspires us constantly. She trusts Jehovah Jireh, God our provider, with her every action. She is fully aware she can’t control anything except her response to people, her circumstances, and the Lord. We are thankful for Marisas demonstration of Self-Control and how we can trust the Lord no matter our situation.
