How has God used The Ridge to impact your life?
I have been blessed far beyond anything I could have asked for, or ever deserved, by The Ridge! When I was backsliding and falling away from the Lord, God called me to attend church at The Ridge where he forever changed my life. Pastor Mike reached out to me, and along with Chuck Wenger, gave me the opportunity to attend a men’s discipleship group (Band of Brothers in Christ) that changed the course of my life forever.
The Ridge has continually shown me love, support, and community as I’ve grown with the Lord. The Ridge not only grew me spiritually, but called me higher as I stepped into a leadership role with the Collegeish group. Every men’s group, small group, or event that I attended at Ridge was always full of God’s love and helped me grow as a disciple of Jesus.
Finally, getting the chance to share my testimony with the church before I moved to Phoenix helped God break the chains of guilt and shame that Satan has tried to use to bring me down.
I can not begin to thank you all enough for what you have meant to me in my life! I am eternally grateful for all of you, and everything you have done, and I pray that God will continue to bless you all and your impact for His kingdom for 20×20 more years! 🙂
Do you have any specific memories you’d like to share about The Ridge?
I remember the joy in my heart, mixed with sadness, as I spent my last Sunday at the Ridge before I moved. There was so much emotion as I was able to share with the church, and see my friends in our college group get baptized 🙂 I could feel God smiling down on the church that day and was so blessed to get to be a part of that 🙂
Again, thank you all for everything you have done for me.
