Netcast Church Update

Just wanted to send out a quick update about Netcast Church.

My coaching sessions with Acts 29 have been going great thus far. We are so excited to be learning from them and have them walk us through this process.

This weeks update is that our new website is finally up and running. On it you can see a video about our church, a little bio on our 2 pastors (myself and Steve shomo) and tons about Boston and our mission. I would encourage all of you to take 3 minutes to browse through it and let us know what you think.

A special thanks goes out to Paul and Amber Shomo for both purchasing and designing this website for us. It was an honor to have them support us in this way. Another thanks goes to Evan Booth and Joseph who helped design our logo and condense the content. Please join me in thanking these guys for supporting us as well. They are very busy people and excellent at what they do, so it was a real blessing to have their help. They worked hard for us without asking for a penny. Thank you guys.

Some of you who are reading this have committed to sending a financial contribution. Thank you for that and I am so excited to see how God will be using your funds for his glory and the growth of his Kingdom. For information on where to send checks and who to make them out to; check out the "Timeline and Needs" page on

I am praying to be fully financially supported by the end of the year. It will take a miracle for that to happen. But I believe in miracles. Per my previous e-mail, we are currently asking for 20 non-family members to give $1000 in order for us to receive the full matching donation from a local businessman. I believe that God has called us to do this, so I do not feel anxious for asking for the support.

On another note, we just had a new baby. Jacob Matthew Chewning was born June 6th at 9:24pm. Mom and Baby are doing great. That's #4 for us. Our family is doing great, growing like crazy. You can check out photo's on Facebook. Take a minute to pray for us as we continue our journey towards a church plant in Boston.

We love you guys.

First on the scene of an Accident

So there has been some really neat conversation going on under my previous blog. This is a different type of post. Something that happened to us yesterday.
We were on our way home from chilling with the in-laws and we noticed a bad accident ahead of us. There was a women about 400lbs lying in the middle of the road. I hopped out of the car and ran ahead only to see that a SUV T-boned a van. The Mexican in the van was fine but the people in the SUV were in bad shape. One lady most likely broke her leg. The really big lady in the road fell out of the far upon impact and seemed to be in pretty bad shape. She was saying that she couldn't feel her legs. I got up close to her and began asking her some questions. She was responding fine. The Cops were not there yet and by this time there was a nice gathering of people by now.

The lady asked if I was a doctor and I informed her no but I was a Christian. I said all I can do is pray for you. Then some black women said, "Yes, that's why I ran up here as well." So, we together began to pray that the accident want worse than it was, we prayed for healing, restoration, and that God would make his name great through this." Then the paramedics got there and told us to move out of the way.

Isn't it cool how in this particular moment, God's people were first on the scene. I started to wonder, Isn't that our job? We hold the keys to life. We have access to the ultimate healer, the King who created life and rose his body from death. This was just another time, where God wanted to show off so he sent 2 believers who never met before and will probably never meet again to be first on the scene of a crisis.

To God be the Glory. I am grateful to be a tool.
