I could never say enough about the Macivers. They have become dear friends of ours in the last 5 months. We’ve managed to condense what seems like an entire lifetime of highs and lows into not even a half a year. Beginning in September of last year, they simply wouldn’t take “no” for an answer when it came to support and care—grace and understanding—after one of the most painful times of our lives. They invited our family to their home time and time again just to talk, let us vent, grieve, process, etc. Soon they introduced us to so many other people who had quietly been the backbone of my former ministry for years–dedicated, “others focused” Christ Followers who were mature in their faith and wanted nothing more than to hear the Lord say one day, “Well done thou good and faithful servant…”
A few weeks into our devotional times together we all sensed the Lord was doing something more, and plans were made to begin building a church that was different in a sea of churches. 17 weeks ago, the launch team for what will soon become Impact Church began, and none of it would have happened without the Macivers.
Thank you, Macivers! You’re more than friends, or even brothers and sisters in Christ–you’re life savers!
