Where is God Using You? / by Alumni Development

By: Aaron Turner

Acts 1:8 calls us to GO!  This is exactly what my wife, Laura, and I are planning to do with our lives. This summer we are moving to Atlanta, Georgia to join Image Church, and I will be on staff as the executive pastor. Image Church is a Summit Network  church plant that was sent out earlier this year (2017). We are excited to help plant a church that is unashamed to proclaim the gospel and be a part of planting 1,000 churches in a generation!  When we moved to Raleigh-Durham to attend Southeastern we didn’t know how much God was going to challenge us, push us and shape us. I have spent the last three years serving as the connections pastor at The Summit Church, while attending Southeastern to pursue my Master of Divinity. God has used this time in conjunction with Southeastern to develop me as a pastor and deepen my relationship with Him. I am so thankful for Southeastern’s commitment to send our student body all of the world to proclaim the gospel! For those still pursing your degree, keep pressing on. These years of hard work are worth it. God is using this time at Southeastern to shape the rest of your ministry.  Please pray for Image Church as we go to the northwest corner Atlanta. Pray God will use us to share His gospel in this city!
