Casey’s Story

Said ‘yes’ and trusted God to work out the details.

It all started with a simple prayer. “God, how can I serve you?”.

Then, the email came asking Casey if he’d consider being a PowerLife leader for seventh grade boys. Feeling this was a clear-cut answer to prayer, Casey said yes to serving without hesitation.

With only one car, there was no easy way to balance calendar obligations with his wife. As Casey began to pray for clarity, he made peace with biking 12 miles from work to Hosanna! every week to fulfill how God had called him to serve. But God had a different plan.

Three days before PowerLife began, Casey’s brother-in-law showed up with an unexpected gift. “I felt called to buy a car and fix it up,” he told Casey. “But I don’t need another car. You do.” His brother-in-law knew nothing of his need for Wednesday night transportation. Together, they praised God for His provision.

Casey honored the Lord and led his group of seventh grade boys with a passionate and open heart. In turn, the roots of faith grew deep. At Confirmation, each and every young man mentioned Casey’s faith as an integral part of their decision to follow Christ.

When it seemed there wasn’t a way, Casey said yes to service and growth. In turn, God more than provided. He says, “I was blessed by leading those young men. Say ‘yes’ – and trust God to work out the rest.”
