How did the Klein Family get here? It's a God thing! Plus, we've been reminded that you have to be willing to practice what you preach.
On January 9, 2011, I was preaching and challenging our congregation to take a step of faith and risk for God; doing something bold for God that took complete trust. I said, “Yeah, but you’re sitting there saying, ‘You’re a pastor, you’re supposed to say things like that. But I’ve to put food on my table and a roof over my head. How am I supposed to take a risk for God?’”
So I said, “You know, I live in safety and security too. I know that I am going have food on my table and a roof over my head. I know that people are going to show up on a Sunday morning. But what if God called me to plant a church somewhere with no guarantees? No people, no money, no building, nothing? I just want to get to the point in my life where I say, ‘God, I will do whatever you ask, and I pray you do too.’”
On January 10, 2011, I received an email, followed by a phone call, asking if we would pray about moving to Florida to plant a church. And so began our journey of discovery, discernment, and prayer. Six months later we moved to Central Florida where we are living into the very realities I had preached. It's a journey that has it's joys and challenges, but we've learned what it means to trust God completely as we encourage others to do the same. We invite you to join s in the journey.
Ryan Zimmer - Worship Pastor Once the Kleins felt the call to move to Florida, they immediately began to pray about a music leader person to partner with them. It wasn't long before one person came to mind - Ryan Zimmer. They had worked together in the church, and there was a sense of common passions and goals, as well as heart of passion for ministry.
Once appraoched, Ryan took a number of months to pray, eventually leading him to move to Florida in February of 2012. Since that time, God has been faithful and has brought to Current a wonderful team of people to lead worship. Ryan's background is in audio engineering, and he is proficient in guitar, drums, keyboard, and bass.
