You have to watch this!

Buckhead Church is one of the three main North Point campuses that we are in strategic partnership with. Just like us, they pride themselves in giving Jesus their best. With every beat of their heart.

Yet sometimes our best comes in the most unrehearsed of moments. Take this past Sunday at Buckhead for example. Simon was to be baptized. Just like us, they have all baptizeees give their testimony on video before they are baptized. That way they can get across the message of hope Christ has placed in them clearly.

Simon took 2 DAYS to film his 2 minute video.
He was mortified. Nervous is an understatement.
Time came to show the video.
Nothing…
Then it played…
No audio…
Then it played again…
Audio this time, but no video…
The crowd was beginning to mumble…
Then video but no audio…
You get the drift.
Luckily their pastor Jeff Henderson was baptizing him and he was money.
Jeff waded through the uncomfortableness of 3000 pairs of eyes staring at them and moved on with…
“Well Simon, I know your story…”
So in the middle of all the chaos somebody yells from the crowd at about 1:02 in the video…
“TELL US YOUR STORY!!!”
And the rest was history…
Watch below how God shows up when our lame equipment does not…

Comments? Anyone want to get baptized?
