Announcing the "iHeart" Haiti Benefit Dance Party!!!

Hey guys!

The Intersection (as well as several other ministries) is hosting a Benefit Dance Party at Freedom Valley York Road on February 14th (Valentine's Day) @ from 2-6pm. We are doing this to raise money with a personal connection we have for the hurting children in Haiti. Their orphanage was destroyed by the earthquake and we can help them rebuild it! Would you consider raising up sponsors to donate their money for your time on the dance floor?

All you need to do is get the word out and raise pledges! If you can't dance, maybe you can sponsor someone else...just give!! You can pick up your sponsor forms this weekend at Guest Central and make sure to bring the pledges you raise with you that night so that we can celebrate!!!

Please respond back to me at if you are interested in helping us with the food, fun, music and dancing for a good cause!!

A Great Beginning!!!

The Intersection had it's first official service last night, January 17th, 2010 and what a great way to start! There were 91 people in attendance for a powerful time of Spirit-filled worship, powerful prayer times and food that would make you break a fast ;)

We have only begun this journey to the great things God has planned for us to do, but it sure does feel like home! I can't wait to take the power of Christ to our friends, families and neighborhoods in innovative ways as creativity and faith connect at the Intersection!!

Thanks to all!! Our next meeting is scheduled for February 28, 2010! Check out our website for more details...

Be Blessed!!

Introducing the Intersection!!!

It's 2010 and this is the year God has chosen to begin a new work in, and through me. I am so thrilled (and humbled) by the vision that God has dropped in my lap over the past year that I can barely contain my excitement! That's why I am pleased to introduce the Intersection to all of you! It's a dream that has been brewing in my Spirit for a while, but in the year of the Wild Goose Chase it is time to let the thing fly and see where the Holy Spirit takes it!

I see this new site as an extension of the work God has been doing over the past two decades through Gerry Stoltzfoos, our lead pastor at Freedom Valley. We will not be a carbon copy of the body at Freedom Valley York Road, but we WILL be an expression of God's love wherever our influence goes!

Let me explain our concept a bit more.

An intersection creates a choice...a choice to stay on the road you have been on, or a chance to turn in a different direction. Sometimes you need a different direction to get a new lease on life. This is where we come in!

I believe God has given us the challenge of creating moments of intersection, where faith and creativity
come together in one defining moment to change lives for the good. A chance to take a different direction in life. One that helps transform broken, hurting people into loving and positive power players in their communities. A chance to connect with others and be moved, challenged and encouraged that there is hope for their life. The Intersection is just that kind of place. In fact, our desire is to help you reach the God-given potential that is yet to be found. We are a group of believers, living in relationship with God and each other for the mutual benefit of the communites that we live in.

I invite you to join us at our next Growth Group meeting to see what we are experiencing first-hand. It is scheduled for this Sunday, January 17th @ Freedom Valley York Road, starting at 5:30pm. This is a vision of church like you've never seen before and we are certain that you will experience God in a new way if you come. Blessings and peace to you!
