The Church that Young People Built

Perhaps the coolest part of raising $2.5 million dollars for our new building is the number of people under the age of 20 that are sacrificially giving in ways that make my heart warm. We received a letter from a former student today with a check inside for hundreds of dollars. Here’s what the letter said:

Dear Mark & Stacy, Joe & Kris, Nick & Rachael (and all the other North Creek Staff),

Thank you! That’s not enough, but I hope you understand my thank you. As a young student you simply believed in me, and that has meant more to my life than anything (other than Jesus, of course!). I pray that money will no longer be an issue of North Creek reaching it’s dream, and sharing the same hope of Christ you shared with me.

I wish I could just write you a check for $1 million, but I know God will provide for you! Thank you!


What a precious blessing from one of our incredible teenagers! She was so easy to believe in, but nonetheless, it still meant a lot to her. It’s another reminder to give what you have…sometimes that’s hundreds of dollars and sometimes it’s believing in someone.

I look forward to the moment when I write her a letter back and tell her that we received $2 million dollars and her prayers were answered. I pray that day comes soon!
