You may be familiar with the story of David and Goliath found in First Samuel 17. What you may not be as familiar with is the journey David went through over years of tending to his sheep in the wilderness. David skills were honed with him having no idea how God would use them for His purposes. Against all odds a young shepherd boy slayed the Philistine giant with a simple sling and stone. David's story is just one example of how God leads each of us on a journey of faith to prepare us for His purposes. This series explores the journey Crossings staff has gone on in their own lives that eventually lead them to a deeper faith and a vibrant ministry. Join Senior Pastor Marty Grubbs as we explore “The Journey”, stories of God’s extraordinary work in everyday people.
