I have six kids, four sons and two daughters. They are all grown up and as much as I miss the days of playing in the yard, being involved in their schools, getting in trouble from my wife for playing football in the living room and all of the other fun memories, this is an amazing season of life as I watch them mature and follow God’s will for their lives as adults.
This is a particularly exciting time for my son, Stevie, his wife Whitney and my son, Jeremiah.
Stevie was called to preach when he was sixteen years old. He is a very talented musician so for several years, he led worship, recorded CDs, and appeared on American Idol, traveling to Hollywood, back to back two years.
He auditioned for The Voice and made it so he packed his bags and was on the way to the airport to fly to L.A. when he finally surrendered to the call of God to start a church.
His plans were originally to go to Memphis to start a church but through a few twists and turns, God has brought him to Cherokee County and his church plant, Mosaic Church will open this Sunday, March 15 in Woodstock.
I cannot tell you the pride and joy I feel as I watch my oldest son pray, preach, plan, prepare and work for this church plant. He is full of passion and expectancy to see God do something incredible.
He and Whitney have been meeting with a group of people in training and have already seen several people receive Christ in these meetings. They are amazing partners in ministry and those adorable 3 kids of theirs are an added bonus!
My son Jeremiah was living in Charlotte, N.C. and after praying, made the decision to move back to Atlanta and serve with his older brother at Mosaic. I have been amazed by the creativity and commitment to excellence in every detail that Jeremiah makes.
These two brothers together are going to rock their community for Jesus. I am fully confident that Mosaic will be a place where many lives are changed.
Meanwhile, I stand and watch with so much pride. You just never know when your little ones are running around what is down the road.
If you are not involved in a local church, go and be a part of the grand opening of Mosaic Church – this Sunday, March 15 at 10:45 AM at 11303 Hwy 92 in Woodstock, GA 30188.
Tell those Flockhart boys that their proud dad sent you!
