A Testimony of God’s Work
Tell us a little about yourself.
My wife, Megan, and I have been married for a little over 6 years. I have two kids. I work in Medical Sales, at a company I’ve been with for almost 5 years.
How’d you start going to Camelback?
Megan grew up going to this church, since her dad (Ron Elwardt) is one of the pastors here. After we got married, Megan and I looked around at a few churches nearby to see what was going to be best for our family, but ultimately we decided on CBC, and we’ve been members ever since.
How has God been working in your life?
Over the last couple of years, the Lord’s been working in my heart in understanding the role of what it means to be a man of God, what it means to lead my family and continually point my family to Christ. So, I really just think about what a privilege it is to be a dad and to be a husband, by God’s grace. I’ll be held accountable for where the boys are, in a sense, when it comes to their relationship with Christ and with Megan, so hopefully they will see the Lord in our marriage. I think I see the need on a daily basis that Megan and I have – how we need Christ in order to love the kids and not get frustrated with them and angry with them, and also to help the kids see their need and their hearts.
Daily we read the Bible with Bradley before he goes to bed; we sing some Bible songs and pray a blessing before we put the kids to bed, and really ask the Lord that they would come to know Him, and that they would have a heart desire to follow Him.
Another way God’s been working in my life involves my job. In my job, how do I honor the Lord in the daily things that I do? Working hard with honesty and integrity, and being truthful with the customers and the people that I come into contact with.
How are you involved at Camelback?
I’m involved in leading a small group. I also am part of a Bible study with other guys at Church. We’re also part of the Children’s Ministry at Camelback — Megan and I teach Sunday School in the SonBeams class, which is a great way to serve together as a couple.
