Ryan's story

"Growing up small town Michigan, my family church hopped trying to find a home church. after college, God's priority in my life began to slip and after two years and two jobs, I was devastated." 

I had to move back to Michigan to my parents were they started to minister and encourage me to not give up. With that and working with my dad for a while I made the big move down to Austin, Texas. Austin has always been on my heart since I started college and never knew why. I found out a few months into living here.

Shoreline was the second place I looked at while looking for a new home church. I walked through the doors and was greeted several times as if they knew me. Walked into a moving, spirit filled worship. Sat down for a spirit led message that I easily related to my life. I wanted to know more about the church so I signed up to serve and was taken up on it quickly.

After a month serving that's when God showed me: I'd made myself my provider in Florida and God let me lose that job. To get ministered to in Michigan. To take that big step of Faith to a city I had no contacts with. To find a church by myself. And to get new jobs to be able to live in the place I always wanted to go.

Without that job loss, I would be still in Florida living the God second life.

With God leading the way for me I found not just a church, but a spiritual family. And I feel greater things are in store with what's coming up with this residency.
