Jason Wilson was pastoring a church in the Pittsburgh PA area just a few years ago when he and his wife felt called by God to move toward church planting. They wanted to create something new and provide a church for people who were not yet part of God's family. They left PA and moved to IA to become church planting residents at citylightcb.org/CityLight Church in Council Bluffs, IA.
Meanwhile Eric Carpenter and his wife have been serving across the Missouri River in Omaha NE at Christ Community Church, and also felt God's call to move toward a church planting partnership in Kansas City MO.
The Wilsons were ready to move to Des Moines, IA or Kansas City, MO. They just needed a partner couple to join them. A mutual friend and mentor connected the two couples and they are soon to move to Kansas City, and plant another "CityLight" Church. Several churches have been planted in the last five years from the original "CityLight" Church in Omaha NE.
Jeff sat down with Eric and Jason while at a conference recently and picked their brains. Then they won his heart. Jeff is going to follow up in 52 weeks with the Wilsons and Carpenters, when they will be the guests on Episode 328... of the 200churches Podcast! :-)
