Why Kent is excited about Easter Gathering

During the next two weeks leading up to our Easter Gathering, our pastors will be posting why they are personally excited about Easter Gathering. For more information, head over to the Easter Gathering page.

Sometimes it’s easy for us as Christians to make a big deal out of things that aren’t a big deal. Good worship bands, summer camp, and Chick-Fil-A are all fine things to be excited about, but they aren’t really as big of a deal as sometimes we make them into.

So I think it’s really cool that we make a big deal about Easter. It’s seems like if you’re gonna be excited about one thing as a church, Jesus being alive is way up there on the list. And doing what Jesus said to do (making disciples, baptizing them, and teaching them) seems like the perfect thing to make a big deal out of.

So we make a huge deal out of it: we rent out one of the bigger venues in Columbia, we baptize lots of people, sing a lot of songs about Jesus, and invite all our friends to come see why it’s such a big deal.

I can’t wait to make a huge deal out of Jesus’ resurrection with you this year at the Metropolitan Convention Center.
