Pastor Jay - God’s Exponential Impact

Pastor Jay is the middle school pastor at Hope Community Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. He is a part of their central services team, which leads the middle school staff for all of Hope's campuses. Jay was involved in one of the first mission teams sent to India through Global Hope India. He is also a US Army war veteran and Jay talked about how being in a war zone led to him carrying a weight of emotional tension. A friend of his invited him to come to North Carolina so he can restart his life. And that move was a pivotal moment for him. 

Pastor Jay talked about how his personal experiences have made him realize that God is a father to the fatherless. And how he continues to do this with the orphanages in India and even to people with leprosy who have been cast outside of their communities. He remembered how one trip became a catalyst to pave a way for the church to grow in that colony and for God to bless them immensely. He also shared a story on how helping a woman by pouring oil on her open wound allowed him to see her faithfulness. And how God used that moment to teach Pastor Jay about faithfulness. 

He also shared how he answered God's call for full-time ministry. He saw how multiple lives were radically changed as a result of that trip and it set a foundation for him to go full time with Global Hope India. Pastor Jay talked about how missions have taught him about hospitality and to just love your neighbor and your brother and their members. He knew without a doubt that God was calling him to full-time vocational ministry and when paired with those instances of faithfulness that he experienced in India, he believed that if you know what God's called you to, then your response is either faithfulness and obedience or it's disobedience. 

Pastor Jay shares how missions have changed his life in terms of seeing that what God does is exponential. He saw this in the influence that God had in the different individuals that he interacted with and on the improvement of the children’s way of living in the orphanage. His vocation as a student pastor along with his experiences when he went on mission trips to India has allowed him to stay faithful.
