"I just started crying because for the first time in a long time I felt accepted. Today I am growing in God and learning to trust again."

Nicole, her husband, and their four kids drove from Texas to Charlotte this past weekend so Nicole could baptized here at our Ballantyne Campus.

I remember hearing the words, “We’re leaving!” come out of my mother’s mouth while I watched my father do what he always did, attack. My parents eventually divorced when I was a teen and it brought some relief, yet caused me to trust no one. In October 2016 I was laid off from my employer, and in December my husband was laid off from his. I was having a very difficult day, a dark day, wondering why I am having to go through yet ANOTHER battle. Then the phone rang from an NC number…I almost fell over. On the other line was CeCe, a volunteer who is part of the Online Welcome Team at Elevation Church. I just started crying because for the first time in a long time I felt accepted. Today I am growing in God and learning to trust again. I’m so thankful that God showed up at just the right time.

I am Nicole & I am #efam from New Jersey
