So if you work for a church you know the feeling of pulling off a great service and yet not really connecting with God for yourself. It shouldn’t be that way, I have built systems that are designed to help keep me and the rest of the staff healthy, but sometimes it happens.
Dustin Willis, the lead pastor is doing a great job of creating an church motivated by one vision, to be missionaries to our city. I must have heard that said 10 times during our time at the State Museum. They are a portable church and are using a fantastic space at the South Carolina State Museum. They do a good job making their portable location work. They utilize some fantastic children’s space for their children’s environments and the whole place has a very urban feel with exposed brick and exposed beam ceilings.
The thing I was most impressed with was not how well they did church. There were many things they could improve on and I am sure they will as they continue to move ahead, but what impressed me most was how well the invested in the things that mattered most in carrieing out their vision. I know with unlimited rescources they would imporve several things, but God is moving and Dustin is doing a great job maximising that momentum. I personally know several people who have invited friends to MidTown who have accepted Christ at MidTown, and that is really all that matters!
A few of the things they are doing really well are their media production, worship experience, community missions / outreach and teaching Gods word. I believe God will continue to bless this ministry as they are a blessing to the downtown community.
Rock on MidTown, keep it up God is using you!
