Ps Josh and Georgie Kelsey are building a God-centred, people loving Church in Brookyln, New York City. Having led and nurtured the Young Adult's ministry at C3 Oxford Falls for several years, the Kelsey's set off to begin sharing the love of Jesus at C3 Brooklyn, their gorgeous son Brooks in tow.
Ps Chris dropped in to visit and encourage them, both of which are so honoured and grateful to God for the fruitfulness that C3 Brooklyn has experienced since its inception only one year ago. Now, with an influx of young families moving into Brooklyn and a genuine curiosity of the nature of 'The Church', they have expanded to two Sunday services to meet the demands of people wanting to ask questions and encounter Christ.
In early 2013, five people met for a Dinner Party to enjoy food and fellowship together while growing relationships with one another and with the Lord. Five grew to 60, and with noise complaints from neighbours, it was evident that God was on the move. This group of 60 formed a Church service and eight Dinner Parties, hosted by anyone with a heart for hospitality. This very culture of hospitality, love and inclusion of all people has helped in the process of adding another Sunday service, launching a Kids program and facilitating a mother's room to serve their members.
We miss the Kelsey's but love seeing what God is doing on the other side of the world with their obedient hearts and passion for the people of Brooklyn. They've discovered their 'sweet spot'.
