Meet Cody Smith:
"I never grew up in the Church. It just wasn’t something my family did when I was a kid. However I’ve always felt drawn to the thought of church and what being part of the one brings to your life. My initial runs with trying to find my place in God’s kingdom always seem to not “fit”. Truth be told when I moved here from Virginia I was completely lost. I had no direction, I had no identity, I felt hopeless, and didn’t know what I was going to bring to the table for my family or my relationship. Naturally when you have those periods you go to the one who is always there to listen.... Jesus. During that time I spoke to him and asked him to show me direction and give me a chance to make something of myself. As always he provided And my journey into who I am now began. A few years in to my new journey I continued trying to find my way to a church that worked for my family and had less than stellar results. When I was nearing the end of my patience almost ready to give up on my faith God placed Pastors Brian and Andrea into my life through my work where he knew we could connect. Shortly after I found out they were Pastors at a local church called Hillcrest. I was drawn to them which meant I was drawn also to their church. A few weeks later my family and I found our way to our first message. From the very first day we knew it was gonna be our home and the place that would help us to grow our children’s faith. I can’t imagine how I ever survived without church, and Hillcrest will be my home as long as they will have us!"
