Garrett and Alissa traveled with the band Final Greetings as full-time music missionaries for two years, visiting churches, summer camps and holding concerts internationally to encourage believers and reach the youth. In the midst of this season, they have taken time to seek God’s calling on their lives and have found a new conviction and excitement in the direction of house church planting and discipleship.
Garrett has a desire to reach people through relationship, and he has grown a passion for the model of discipleship that comes as a part of home churches and being stationary. Seeing God already move during his time in Modesto, he’s excited to reach old and new friends by challenging them in their faith and teaching them to let go and allow God to be in control of their lives. Garrett is excited to see what God will do as he spends his time investing in people where they’re at and encouraging them to keep pushing forward.
Alissa has felt a desire to embrace her spiritual giftings of hospitality and shepherding to help disciple people and push them forward in their faith and maturity. She has a heart to help those going through difficult times to know that they are not alone, and to take care of people’s emotional and physical needs. She looks forward to spending most of her time encouraging other people through weekly house church meetings, game nights and coffee dates.
