My name is Lane Wood and I am the worship pastor at Capital Community Church in downtown Raleigh. My wife and I moved to Raleigh about 10 years ago to attend Southeastern. We got plugged in with a great church, Providence Baptist Church, and Providence planted Capital Community Church eight years ago. When they planted, they asked me to pray about getting it started.
After praying for several months, my wife and I accepted the call to help plant Capital. I was in my last semester of my M.Div program at Southeastern. I have now served at Capital from the start, both in student and worship ministries, and am so grateful for my church. To be honest, my wife and I always assumed that upon graduating, we would leave the Raleigh area to serve at a church somewhere else in the southeast. However, God obviously had different plans. The training that we both received at Southeastern has been invaluable as we both serve at our church, even seven years after graduation! All glory to God for the work He is doing in the Raleigh/Wake Forest area and beyond!
