More Than A Church, We're A Family
Our story began while serving God at Word of Faith International Christian Center in Michigan. It was during that time where we learned that we both desired to serve God with all our hearts – we wanted to see people come to know Jesus and grow in the Word of God. In 19 years of marriage, two children, and many life experiences that has remained our focus.
As we completed Bible school, we had no idea where our journey would take us. First stop was Jacksonville, Florida at Faith Christian Center, now Impact Church (IC-Jax). We moved in 2002 to assist the ministry in whatever way we could. We began as youth/student pastors, which was a tremendous time. To see young people give their lives to Christ is indescribable. From there, Robert went on to serve as an assistant pastor and eventually Senior Assistant Pastor. Minyon served as Director of Education and Ministry Connections. We are so grateful for the 14 plus years we spent in Jacksonville where we established relationships that will last a lifetime. The families we encountered, the people we were privileged to serve, and the wonderful things we had the opportunity to accomplish were a great blessing – we will never forget and will forever be thankful for that time. IC-Jax established a strong foundation in us - it increased our desire to reach more people for Jesus and deepened our passion to serve God with everything in us.
When God moved on our hearts to launch Impact Church in Northern Virginia (NOVA) we were excited, honored, and nervous. With the generous support of our Pastors, George and April Davis and the prayers of our church family, we packed up and moved with our two sons to Ashburn, VA, trusting God all the way. Some would ask, why NOVA? Some would say, we had no previous connection, no family, just a few friends in the general vicinity. However, there has been a long-time connection to NOVA for us. In the early days of our marriage, we vividly recall being led by Holy Spirit to pray for Virginia. Many people close to us can recall our intense desire to pray for the area and the people. Initially, we thought we were just entrusted to pray. However, the area continued to come up in our hearts. From family vacations, events in the area, and connecting with people from the area – we knew NOVA was not only special to us, but we have a great love for the people in this area. We are excited to see God’s plan come to pass.
Our heart is to do exactly what God has always done with us – serve God by serving His people, introduce people to Jesus, and see people grow in their relationship with God. As the next phase of our journey continues, we are excited to share the love of God in the NOVA area with those who know Him and those who don’t as we all get to the place God wants us to be, doing the things God wants us to do.
