The Overflow Staff are excited to be forming an official Overflow Internship Team this fall!!! 

UPDATE: We’ve been blown away by how many students have already applied. That means if you are interested, you need to act fast. We will be making your final decision for our Internship Team by August 1st!

We are currently looking for motivated, relational, organized, and hard working individuals to join our Team! Specifically, we want to find college students with interest and abilities in hospitality, administration, graphic design, social media, live production, event planning, and relational ministry. These internships will be for the 2017-18 school year.

SEND 20 – Recap

This semester we wanted to make an impact in our world through our partnership with a seminary in Guatemala, called SETECA. So we made a goal to provide 20 scholarships for students to afford Seminary training in order to be equipped and sent out to impact the world!

This goal had us both excited and nervous. We feared that our goal was to high or our timeframe was too short. But thanks to YOUR generosity, we were able to afford more than 20 scholarships!

Here are some of the students we were able to help:

We wanted to give you a look at some of the specific students we empowered through SEND20:

Meet Diego:

Diego came to the seminary “SETECA” from Ecuador. Last year he served as the student body president. This year he is studying in Masters of Theology program. Diego feels God’s calling to do church leadership training in the rural areas of Ecuador. Because of SEND20, we were not only able to make an impact in Guatemala, but also in the future of Ecuador!

Meet Raul & Angela:

Raul & Angela came to SETECA from Spain. Angela is studying counseling and Raul is studying Bible. Raul is involved in a teaching ministry in their local church. They both serve in pastoral care with SETECA married students that live on campus. They are seeking GOd’s will as to where He would have them minister upon graduation.

Meet Elizabeth:

Elizabeth came to SETECA with her family from Bolivia. She is studying Counseling. Alberto, her husband, also studied at SETECA and is currently pastoring a church in Guatemala City. Elizabeth has a passion for children and has started a club for kids on Saturdays with children from low income situations. Elizabeth plans to continue using her counseling and teaching abilities along with her husband in ministry!

 

Meet Loida:

Loida’s parents are SETECA alumni. Loida is from Guatemala but lived for several years in Spain where her parents are serving as missionaries. Loida is studying Bible in the masters program. She has a love for languages and feels God is leading her to do Bible translation!


As you can tell, together as Overflow, we were able to come together and bless college students at SETECA to make an impact all across the world! Thank you so much for you generosity and please join us in continuing to pray for these individuals and what God is doing in and through our ministry partner SETECA!

Treasure Island

Jump In With “Treasure Island”

Each Sunday kids in Treasure Island, PC3’s elementary ministry,  engage in a camp-like experience as they come in to worship, play crazy games, build relationships in small group and learn about God with their friends.

Their mission is to reach kids and come alongside families to help them walk with God and they believe that life change happens in the context of small groups. This is where you come in. As a college student you have the opportunity to pour into the kids alongside of your friends and make a huge impact with your time. They provide everything that you need to become a successful small group leader from the materials and all of the curriculum to the training and support as you develop as a leader.

Treasure Island would love to have YOU and your friends come and join this mission by volunteering to be a small group leader for the 9am, 11am or 5pm service. This is an easy way to make a huge impact in our church and in our city… so grab a friend and jump in to T.I.!

If you would like to learn more about volunteering in Treasure Island, please email sierra.barnes@portcitychurch.org!

SEND 20 – Overflow Giving Project

New Graphic.001

This semester we desire to make an impact in our world through our partnership with a seminary in Guatemala, called SETECA! You and I may never make it to the cities of Argentina, or the villages of Ecuador, or the towns of Nicaragua to share the love of Jesus… but there are people who God has called and who desire to do that very thing. Many of them desire to be trained and equipped for that task, but for some the ability to pay for that training is not even possible.

This semester we want to make that possible. We want to provide 20 scholarships for students to afford Seminary training in order to be equipped and sent out to impact the world! And all we have to do is give.

Individually, it would be difficult to SEND 20, but if every student at Overflow donated $20 ($5 for every Tuesday in February) we can reach our goal! Let’s come together and make a small sacrifice to make a huge impact in our world!

A New Year & A Fresh Hope

Check out a special message from our Overflow Pastor, Clay Everett below:

“I love the start of a new year. For me it’s a chance to take a breath, to access where I’ve come from, and look forward to where I’m going. The beginning of 2017 has been no different. As I looked back over last year there are so many things I was grateful for, but also things I hope to do differently or get better at this year…and with those things in mind 2017 is full of hope!

What’s cool is that we have the same opportunity for a fresh hope at Overflow! God was good to us last year, but I believe He has more in store! As I look ahead to this year, and this Spring Semester, here is my hope for Overflow…

My hope for Overflow is that we would be a people who seek after God. That we would be a people who seek to know God better, to trust Him more fully, and to love Him more deeply. I believe this can be true for each of us, whether you feel near to God or far from God. Whether your life is great or if your pain feels unbearable…. God invites each of us to seek Him and He makes this promise:

“If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” – Jeremiah 29:13

The Bible tells us that seeking God brings understanding, blessing, refreshing, gladness, reviving, and reward… and these results are not in addition to God, but God Himself. When we seek God, we find that God is the only One able to satisfy every longing of our hearts!

So as we start this new year let’s together make a choice to seek God. Let’s run after God and seek Him as our hope, our righteousness, our source, our life, our refuge and reward! If we do… I believe that we will come to the end of this semester and that we would be able to see some really amazing things that God has done in us and through us!

That is my hope.”

Campus/City/World

At Overflow we believe that God has called each and every one of us to make an impact in the world. We may forget it, but the truth is we have been given a divine purpose! We have been sent by God to bring hope and truth to a world desperately in need of it- to bring Jesus to a world in need of a Savior! And we do that through our words and our actions.

Together as Overflow we desire to make an impact in our Campus, City, and World! Here is how you can join us:

Campus:

The Overflow Campus Organization (OCO) is a committed team of students who are passionate about seeing Overflow’s mission brought to our college campuses. Simply put, our mission at OCO is reach students to help them walk with God. We would love to have you meet with us weekly as we seek to engage, serve, and connect college students to Christ!


City:

We love Wilmington- so we are committed to making our city better! We have decided that as Overflow, we are going to pour everything we have into making an impact in our city through the Brigade Boys & Girls Club. Brigade is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring, enabling, and empowering children in our city who need us the most! To join us in serving this awesome club, check out the link below!


World:

The Missions team of Port City Church has some pretty amazing opportunities for us to go outside of our comfort zone (and outside of our country), in order to share the hope and truth of Jesus with the world far away from us! If you want to find out how you can make an impact in our world, let us know and we will give you more information about our upcoming summer mission trips!
