We had a great weekend at Oasis Church in Greenwood, SC. My friend from North Greenville College days, Curt Hanna, is the pastor there and doing a great job. They planted the church back in September and are slowly gaining momentum. It’s always encouraging to walk into a place like that and see the fresh excitement and hunger and thirst for God that brand new churches have–something that many older, more established churches would do well to learn from. There’s a since of desperation and raw passion for God to show up and bless their efforts in the preaching and living of the gospel in their community–because they know and realize that if He doesn’t steer, guide and direct this thing, it’s not going to last. Oasis seems to be one of those new church plants that get it–that understands that important truth–so, I’m excited to see what the Lord does through and with them in the future.
