Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
 
Our 30th birthday celebration began on Feb. 1, 2019 with a dinner at Hillcrest Country Club. Gavin Johnson was our guest speaker and he did a tremendous job of sharing how God touched his life through the ministries at Messiah and how that has played a large part in his calling to the ministry and the subsequent birthing of multiple churches.
Gavin and his family came to Messiah in 1995 when he was entering high school.  He was active in both high school youth group and later a college/young adult discipleship group.  He was also a drummer in our worship team during the 6 years he was at Messiah. In 2002 he left Messiah to finish his college education at UNO.  He is the founding pastor of Citylight church in Omaha.  Since it’s beginning in 2013, Citylight has planted six daughter churches across the region.
 
Gavin’s talk was recorded last night and it is something you absolutely won’t want to miss. Watch the video here or listen to the podcast of it on our podcast channel or app.
