Mitch Dunfee ~ ASSOCIATE PASTOR
"Hi. I am Mitch Dunfee and I became a Christian at 28 years old, proof that Jesus will take anyone.
I grew up with an alcoholic dad that, when sober, was a great dad. Unfortunately the sober times were overwhelmed by the periods of drinking. It is amazing how God used this in my life.
You see, as I became an adult I began to try and make sure I was doing better than my dad. I had a steady respectable job, I only got drunk once or twice a month (after i turned 23), I did not beat my kids because I was drunk and out of control.
You see, I had a mark to measure how good of a guy I was. I was better than a drunk.
When I was 23 I met and ultimately married Marci and after two years of marriage she somehow was not as impressed with my incredibly high standard of being better than a drunk and left me for about a month. We reconciled for our kids sake but things were building up again between us because I could not be a man that put others needs truly before himself.
Marci became a Christian at this time and her life radically changed. She became this faithful giving compassionate person that I now could not live up to. It is easy to be better than a drunk but impossible to meet the standard saw in her life.
I gave up trying to be good enough 6 months later and accepted Jesus as my only hope to be the man I wanted to be. When you become a Christian you do not see all the changes God is making in your life but a year later i looked up a realized my life had radically changed.
In the past 26 years there is nothing Jesus has not asked me for: jobs, positions, where I live, even my family and every time I have said yes to Him, He has given me better than i could have ever imagined. I get the awesome privilege of serving Jesus and seeing Him change lives, mine most of all."
