Often members at Rocky Creek desire to serve, but cannot figure out when their schedule allows them to best serve within the body. As our mission expands and Rocky Creek partners with other churches desiring to experience revitalization, our church body has the opportunity to serve both within the doors of 1801 Woodruff Road and in other locations across our city.
Brenn Bagwell, as a businessman and church leader, knows that he has a limited amount of time in his week to accomplish all that the Lord has invited him to be involved in as a Christian leader. Rocky Creek knows that we must offer many times/routes for both your personal worship and your Bible study while offering you opportunities to serve. A willing heart to serve and many avenues to serve and to be ministered to have allowed Brenn to say “yes” to several ministry opportunities.
When Rocky Creek partnered with Cedar Grove Baptist, Brenn began worshiping with Cedar Grove on Sunday mornings to support Bryce Staggs in his role as pastor. Bryce is a member of the Gospel Group Brenn teaches in his home on Sunday evenings, so Brenn desired to support what God was doing in Bryce’s life. Quickly, Brenn noticed a need for someone to serve in the media area. With no prior experience in running media for a worship service, Brenn stepped in to learn how to help. As God often does, he also sparked a media interest in the heart of a teenager at Cedar Grove. Brenn now mentors that young teen in the media area and that young man now consistently attends church.
When we look at Brenn’s Sunday schedule, it is clear that Sunday is Brenn’s serve day. He leads Overcomers in Bible study at 9:00AM, moves to Cedar Grove at 10:30AM to assist with worship, and returns to Rocky Creek at 5:00PM for his personal worship with his wife. Following worship, he and his wife, Brenda, open their home to a young adult couples Gospel Group where they both lead Bible study and also find community.
Ministry always involves a sacrifice of time, but if you watch Brenn Bagwell on his serve day, you will see that Brenn is energized by the things God has called him to do. As our ministries expand, you will have many opportunities to step up and to lead at Rocky Creek, Cedar Grove, and at Woodside. Begin praying about where you can step up and lead like Brenn.
