7-7-16 Free Car, No Strings Attached -- Stories from CALLED Magazine
By Dave Gemmell
Pastor John Masigan invites you to spend a weekend with him at Church in the Valley via documentary video. John sees firsthand what it is like to provide a breakfast club for a local public school. Next, John joins dozens of volunteers for Extreme Home Repair on demolition day as they fill a giant dumpster. Sunday morning finds John driving down the road in the rain headed for the surprise car giveaway.
During the weekend John sits down first with David Jamieson and then Michael Dauncey to talk about what it is like to lead a church that focuses on meeting the needs of the community with no strings attached. They answer questions such as “How do you find enough volunteers?” “How do you create a compelling vision for compassion?” and, “How do you build a state of the art community center?”
