CPCHill20—In June 2014, Lisa and I had the privilege to be called as the interim pastor and wife for Christ Presbyterian Church in The Hill, a church plant in a low-income, under-resourced community in New Haven, CT. Fall 2017, I was ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America on September 16th and then installed at the full time pastor of CPC in The Hill on November 19th.
In order to raise a portion of our support, over the years we have partnered Living Bread Ministries’ entrepreneur program that helps Thai women vulnerable to human trafficking to start businesses (freegrance.org). Making purchases from Freegrance on their online store of soaps and jewelry made these ladies (using the promo code CPCHiLL20), you can support our Church Plant in the Hill and the women making a new life for themselves.
This year, Maxine Harris, our church's administrative assistant (and very much my co-partner in this adventure) has begun taking on some of the fundraising responsibilities we need to raise for the resources and funds to sustain the Hill church planting adventure. For every purchase ordered on Freegrance.com/shop, Living Bread Ministries will give 20% toward Maxine's fundraising, which will help support our Hill Church Plant–and, at the same time, help support the entrepreneur ministry of Freegrance.
Would you consider supporting our Freegrance.org fundraiser and share with us in this adventure as we seek to build Jesus’ church, change people’s lives, and be agents of transformation in The Hill.
For the Month of February, please take the time to look at the freegrance.com website and consider supporting both of our ministries. Just remember to use the code--CPCHill20—in the promo code discount box on the cart page when you begin your purchase.
Please share as well . . .

I am the pastor and church planter for Christ Presbyterian Church in The Hill; a flawed practitioner of Wasted Evangelism. I am learning about Wasted Evangelism through my experience in The Hill and through the good people of CPC in The Hill.
