Photo Essay: Easter Egg Helicopter Drop 2017 at Life Church

These are my heroes.
We call them ‘Lifers.’
They pray.
They serve.
They give.
They love.
With no strings attached.

What they did Easter weekend at the church I love will be a lasting childhood memory for THOUSANDS.
Let that sink in: THOUSANDS.  About six thousand to be exact.

And the entire event only takes about 50 volunteers, a local business partner, and faith the size of a mustard seed.

God honored our heart motivations for this free event and granted us favor with positive media coverage from, NBC25 News, and ABC12 News.

I’m in awe of our great God and our amazing Lifers.
This is what the church could be and should be when silly gossip and insider church politics are rejected in favor of love and and a white-hot vision for making Jesus famous.
Haters are gonna hate while Lifers are gonna change lives in Jesus’ name.

Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something.
Together, we can.
And we did.
And the best is YET to come!
