Home Restoration for Michael Wilson
Organized by: Richard Brown
In 1 Timothy 2, Paul encourages a young Timothy not to neglect the ministry of discipleship by becoming bogged down in "civilian affairs". Paul viewed discipleship as so vital to the health of the church that he challenged the ministers to be hyper focused on this calling.
1 Timothy 2:1-3 "My dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. Soldiers don’t get tied up in the affairs of civilian life, for then they cannot please the officer who enlisted them."
We have a wonderful opportunity before us to unshackle one of our important staff members from a burden that he has been chained to for nearly a year. Soon after buying their home, Michael and Hayden Wilson discovered termite damage to their back bedroom and office. The seller did not disclose the damage and the inspector failed to see the evidence of infestation. The damage is severe. Estimates to repair have ranged from $50,000 to $100,000. A contractor within our church has committed to provide some materials for free, manage the project for free and only charge for cost of the sub-contractors. Now, the total cost of the restoration has dropped to $13,000. The campus pastor at Newspring in Charleston is excited and supportive of this effort. We are asking that you give graciously to this restoration project. Michael Wilson has a tremendous responsibility in Charleston. He has nearly 400 young people and many volunteers who look to him for spiritual guidance. Lets remove this distraction from his life.
