We've noticed that major media outlets are reporting on those services.
As his new album "Jesus Is King" has risen to the top of the charts, so have the reports about church.
Pardon our copycatting, but we figure its time to do some reporting of our own.
The YWAP Directors have the honor of visiting a few churches during the course of a year. We'd like to give you a report on what we've experienced. Hopefully if you're looking for a decent Bible preaching church who puts God first, these reports will help you find one.
YWAP Church Report #1 - "Tucson Central Church of The Nazarene"
My wife and I arrived with our friend Miguel in time for the Service that began at 10:45 AM. The church folks had already served a continental breakfast from 8:00 - 9:45 AM followed by Bible Study, Sunday School and Youth Group from 9:30 - 10:30 AM. By the time 10:45 AM rolled around, these folks were energized and ready to roll into a great service!
The contagiousness of the Holy Spirit began even before the Worship Team started. Just their attitudes of joy alone were enough to ignite a bunch of folks eager to put God first in their praise and worship. The tunes they sang were old hymns modernized and sung with a passion. Some of them stood out in my mind as I had sung them in my head as my wife and I went hiking in the woods on Saturday. Precious Jesus, Leaning On The Everlasting Arms, Come Thou Font of Every Blessing, along with a few other beautiful songs prepped us for prayer and the Word of God.
Pastor Curtis is a Bible based teacher and expositor - meaning that he takes the Truth of God's Word and digs deeply for revelation. He told us that there's room in heaven for everybody who follows Christ. Here are some of my thoughts as I listened to Pastor Curtis preach. They aren't necessarily what he said, but it is where God led me through what he said.
- Salvation is in a person not an event.
- Get to know God by becoming more Christ-like.
- If you're a Christian, get to know Jesus.
- He wants to reveal Himself to you so you can reveal Him to others.
- A dud named John said that if all the miracles of Jesus were written about, the whole world wouldn't have enough room to contain all the books that would be written.
