Kirsten’s Baptism Story

On April 17 of this past semester, we got to celebrate Kirsten’s baptism!

Kirsten’s story highlights the importance of being intentional with the people around you and INVITING your friends into your church and your walk with God. Although she didn’t have a lot of church background, that did not prevent her friend Catherine from inviting her anyway!

“No matter where you are, God is ready for you. He is standing there with open arms. You don’t have to check any boxes off or go to church x amount of times. You just have to accept Him in your heart. That was so hard for me to do but after I felt a weight lifted!”

Incredible. Thanks for sharing your story with us, Kirsten!


Ashlyn’s Baptism Story

Earlier this semester, we got to celebrate Ashlyn’s baptism!

“I grew up going to Catholic school…. but I feel like my religion was forced on me… I studied the Bible but I was never really encouraged to form a relationship with God.”

Like many of us that grow up in a religious home, after a few painful and difficult seasons in life, we can begin to separate ourselves from God. Ashlyn’s experience was the same.

But through God’s grace, Ashlyn ended up surrounded by good community here in Wilmington that encouraged her to come to Overflow. After a few weeks of God working in her life and through her community, Ashlyn decided to dedicate her life to Christ!

“I want to be baptized today because I see the Lord working in me. And I see that in my darkest times, He loved me through it and He pulled me out of the situation I was in and brought me into a place that was full of life.” Incredible!

Thanks for sharing your story with us, Ashlyn!








Zachary’s Baptism Story

Earlier this semester, we got to celebrate Zachary’s baptism!

“Growing up I was bullied a lot because of who I was and what I did. Walking along with Jesus through those difficult times, I really found freedom in being who I am.”

“No matter what happens, good or bad, Jesus has a plan.”

Thank’s for sharing your story with us, Zachary! And thank you for helping us to create an awesome environment for other students to experience Overflow via the Production Team on Tuesday nights!

Kendall’s Baptism Story

This past semester, we got to celebrate Kendall’s baptism!

“Anxiety has always been present. I can never shut my mind off. But God has given me freedom from anxiety in my life… God is always present. Knowing that I don’t have to take on this world alone and knowing that He already overcame this world: God saved me from myself and gave me the greatest gift of all which is grace- and with that come the ability to myself grace but to give grace to others.”

A lot of us struggle with anxiety but Kendall’s testimony reminds us that we can find freedom in Christ! Thank you for sharing your story with us, Kendall! We pray that God continues to allow you to be a light and an example to others.

Devin’s Baptism Story

This past semester, we got to celebrate Devin’s baptism!

When she told us her story, she said, “I struggled with not feeling good enough… I didn’t feel full and I felt a void in my life so I was just going through the motions.”

Many of us struggle to feel like we have to be perfect for the people in our lives- especially our family, friends. We hope you can take a moment to listen to Devin’s story of finding fullness in the Lord and learning to trust Him.

Thank you for sharing your story with us, Devin! We are so glad God brought you to Wilmington and to Overflow!

Julianne’s Baptism Story

A few weeks away we got to celebrate Julianne’s baptism!

“In times when I think about my Dad, I think of what God promises me and the truth that He gives me- that regardless of whether I have a dad on earth I still have a Heavenly Father. Ever since my dad passed away there has always been a season or a storm… it’s never really calmed down since then. But I’ve really found that God is the calm in my storm.”

“I was searching-  I was looking for something to take the pain. God saved me… He gave me the strength to pursue. I was looking for my belonging elsewhere. It wasn’t this year until I got plugged into Overflow… that I found my true belonging and my identity in Christ. ”

Thank you for sharing your story with us Julianne and for being an awesome part of this ministry!

Ginny’s Baptism Story

A few weeks away we got to celebrate Ginny’s baptism!

“I completely let go of a lot of bitterness that I held. I have completely forgiven my dad. And that is not something I could have ever done with out Christ. And that is not something I ever expected my self to be able to do. That is evidence enough for me to know that my God is good and He is forgiving. He forgives my dad and I forgive my dad too.”

Thank you, Ginny, for reminding us of the freedom we have to love and forgive others through Christ!

Guatemala 2017

Every Spring Break we send a team of college students to a seminary we partner with in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Each year we have an incredible experience learning more about our team, about Guatemalan culture, and what God is doing in Central America through our ministry partners and- in affect- all over the world! This year was no exception. Check out a video recapping this year’s mission trip filmed by our students, Kenneth Freyer.



Senior Video 2017


We have had the pleasure of doing ministry with some incredible people over the past 4 years. In honor of some of these students graduating last week, we wanted to share a video that we showed on Senior Night at Overflow. Check out the video above to hear some amazing advice and wisdom that these seniors have to offer you!

. . .

Also, we couldn’t send these seniors off properly if we didn’t have a little fun… Check out some of the outtakes from out time together, in the video below. Enjoy!

Kenneth’s Baptism Story

On Senior Night at Overflow, we got to hear Kenneth’s story and celebrate in his baptism!

“It wasn’t until my sophomore year of college that I took a step back and reevaluated everything. I started turning away from my earthly desires and started diving into the Word and that is because a friend of mine invited me to Overflow… it was one of the greatest experiences and it started to open up my perspective and my heart to Jesus.”

Thank you Kenneth for reminding us how God uses simple acts of obedience to completely change our lives. And thank you for allowing God to use your talents and gifts to make an impact in our world and to glorify Him!

Check out his story above!
