Last week was really exciting for me at the prison. I am one of the chaplains at Kershaw Correctional Institution.We had a very special service that featured several pastors from Elevation Church. Elevation has “adopted” our prison chapel as one of their Extension campuses. That means that weekly one of the worship services we provide is the same video that other campuses use.
What made this service so special is that Pastor Steven Furtick preached on Thursday at Kershaw. He speaks at the largest venues in the world, so it was super cool of him to say, that he really wanted to come to Kershaw to see what was happening for himself.
If you’re reading this blog from anywhere else in the world, you simply can’t know what it is like to see God work in Kershaw. There is some kind of special anointing about this place. For Kershaw to be out in the proverbial nowhere, a lot of really neat things go on here–even in prison.
This is just another example of the hand of God resting on us in Kershaw. (We also have had Norman Geisler preach at Kershaw’s chapel).
For many people, they won’t see it. They say, “you got to go thirty minutes to get to a Walmart.” That may be true, but God’s got his hand on Kershaw, and Walmart doesn’t carry that!
Team Church is in Kershaw because Kershaw is special to God! I’m so glad that we were called to this mission. I guess this would be the time to insert “We are Lancaster?” mmm….
