Charlie Mitchell IS THE THE HEAD PASTOR FOR Epiphany Church Baltimore in Baltimore, Maryland. WE ARE HONORED TO PARTNER WITH HIM AND THE CHURCH COMMUNITY BEGINNING IN 2018.
How have you seen God working in your life?
God has been a faithful friend during this season of my life in ministry. The early days of 2017 were very difficult for my family and I as we faced many health issues that threatened to derail our ministry efforts in Baltimore City. In spite of that God has work in our weakness and provided all that we could ask or think. My faith in the Lord has only increased as each day more opportunities to serve and make an impact in Baltimore have come in ways that can only be accounted to God. God is faithful.
How have you seen God working in your family?
My wife and children have always been a priority in my life. But as we faced the realities of church planting and the trials of spiritual warfare I quickly realized that rhythms and patterns we had cultivated in the past were not enough to withstand the pressures of church planting in the inner-city. So we have double-down our efforts to address the spiritual and emotional needs of everyone in our household and reinforce rhythms of rest and renewal so that we can sustain a healthy family while planting.
How have you seen God working in your church?
Our church is a miracle from God. When most people speak of starting a new church they use agricultural language to help people understand the process. For us, we use the language of demolition and construction. In the recent months that we have been on the ground in Baltimore City, God has brought us people who are ready to work and serve iso Baltimore would better reflect the kingdom of God. It has been astounding to watch.
At Epiphany Church, our aim is to be in the community, for the city, showing off the glory of Christ. We do this by cultivating communities of Spirit-led followers of Jesus that enjoy God, engage the city, and reach the world.
