We get it. Life is hard and the Church has failed to offer you a message that makese sense. You believe in a lot of Biblical values, but you're having a hard time seeing how they apply to today's rapidly changing world. For over 15 years Nfluence Church has helped thousands of people just like you push past religious cliches that make no sense and experience a real relationship with God. Whether you've been "over-churched," (Been there. Done that. Got burned. No thanks.), or "under-churched" (My life's too messed up to step foot in a church,) or someplace in between, we're here to help you find clarity, hit the reset button on your faith, and finally find a place where you belong.
"I grew up in two churches. My mom was Catholic, and my dad UCC . My parents passed away several years ago and within four months of each other. At that time I had just turned 18. I tried to go back to the churches I grew up in, but it was just too painful after the loss of my parents. I still believed in God and talked to him, but had not continued to go to church weekly. Since then, I knew something was missing in my life, but I couldn't quite figure it out until someone introduced me to Nfluence. Then something wonderful started happening. It made me feel like the hole in my heart began to be repaired. Now I can't imagine not being able to worship God in such a wonderful worship experience. Nfluence has changed me for the better, and I believe is making me a better person as a result."
"Before I connected with Nfluence I had a legalistic mindset and blamed God for all my problems. I thought God was the author of all the negative things in my life. I could never escape the mindset that God was "testing" me by sending bad circumstances into my life to toughen me up, or get me to focus on him. It all made me angry, gave me anxiety, and led to a lot of screaming at God. Eventually, I started drinking a lot, which of course didn't help matters. It just made me sink worse like quick sand. That's when I ran across a copy of "Good God," by Pastor Lucas. In fact, on our honeymoon I believe the Holy Spirit moved my wife to pick up Pastor Lucas' book. He said, "Give this to Vince." When she handed it to me, I thought, "Yeah, yeah. Just another religious book telling me what I'm not living up to." Boy, was I wrong. When Pastor Lucas broke down the Job "conspiracy," the book of James which talks of temptations, tests, and trials, and God's "My grace is sufficient..." answer to Paul, my life was completely changed. I finally understood that God is good in every sense of the word just like Pastor Lucas says in his book. God bless you."
"I want to thank Pastors Lucas and Krissy for all they do for the church! My wife and I have been coming to Nfluence for over two years. We love all of the inspirational teachings which have helped us to grow so much in that time. We have also met a lot of very kind and caring people. We're also on the Connections Team and enjoy serving!"
