Meet the Candidates: Marshall Buckler

How long have you been a member of Christ’s Church and why did you make it your church home?

I have been a member of Christ’s Church for almost 3 years now.  This is the only church I’ve ever been involved with and the community is so close it feels like family, so making it my home was really a very easy decision.

How have you grown as a disciple of Christ over the past year?

 Being involved with my discipleship triad over this last year has really challenged me to step outside of my comfort zone spiritually.  I’ve gone door-to-door on multiple occasions to introduce myself and the church to the community, which is something I never imagined myself doing even a year ago. I've also developed more regular devotional time for prayer and scripture.

What is your vision for Christ’s Church?

It’s difficult for me to put into words my vision for our church.  I think having a building to call our own has been a big part of my vision.  Having our own space gives us so many more opportunities for outreach and ministry. We will have the ability to host community events, morning prayer times, and evening bible studies, all of which I’m excited to be a part of.  I’m excited about the future for Christ’s Church, and can’t wait to see what God has for us.
