21 Reminders Of Who You Are In Christ

Aaron's Message

Last Tuesday, Aaron Keyes spoke an incredibly powerful message over us at Overflow (check out his message here). He challenged us to get to know who we are. But the truth is, we will never truly know who we are, unless we know who God says we are!

Overflow Spotlight- Whitty Stephens

Whitty StephensEveryone welcome Whitty Stephens to the #OVFspotlight! Whitty is a senior at UNCW studying Finance and Accounting. But you might recognize him as one of our awesome Host Team members holding a door and greeting everyone to Overflow on a Tuesday night!

“I always felt like I should get involved in church, but told myself I didn’t have time. However @mikeashcraft spoke one Sunday about a huge aspect of walking with God which is being active in service. So I decided to take the next step in my faith, and volunteer at Overflow.

Through attending and serving at Overflow, I have been able to make many great friendships that have encouraged me and challenged my walk with God.”

Thank you Whitty for sharing and for being a HUGE part of Overflow!

Overflow Spotlight- Sierra Barnes

4 Sierra Barnes

Everyone welcome Sierra Barnes to the #OVFspotlight!

Sierra is a graduate from Cape Fear & UNCW. While she was in school, she helped us start the Overflow Campus Org! As a post-grad, Sierra now serves on the Overflow Leadership Team.

“I can vividly remember my first night at Overflow. I wanted to meet people right away but I felt a little overwhelmed. Serving on the Leadership Team allows me to be that friendly, welcoming face to those who are new to Overflow, to help those who are ready to take their next steps, or to be available for students who want someone to pray with. God used Overflow to greatly impact my walk with God and provided me with life-long friendships through getting involved with the ministry. I want others to experience that as well!”

Thank you Sierra for the huge impact you have made at Overflow!

(Fun fact: Sierra met her husband on an Overflow mission trip her freshman year!)

Overflow Spotlight- Shelby Goione

Shelby GoioneEveryone welcome Shelby Goione to the #OVFspotlight!

Shelby is an art major at CFCC who has a knack for using her creative skills in a unique way that are both encouraging and inspiring. Shelby has helped us do some cool projects around Overflow this semester and has been an awesome member of our Production team for the past year and a half.

“I was definitely nervous at first, but I felt lead to start serving at Overflow. I was excited to be a part of the team at PC3 that is making an incredible impact in Wilmington.

Honestly, I never thought Overflow would impact my life as much as it has. Overflow has become a home away from home to me. Not only does it continue to challenge me in my walk with God, but it helps me to grow deeper in my relationship with Him. I’m truly thankful to be apart of such a encouraging and motivating ministry.”

Thank you Shelby for sharing your gifts with us and allowing God to work in and through you in our church!
