Some Big News (No, we’re NOT pregnant!)

Finally!! I haven’t blogged in so long because there’s something I wanted to share. Blab it before it was time. But now I can. Here goes…The Summit Church is planting a campus in Alamance County, and they’ve asked Jeremy to be the Campus Pastor!

Here’s some information you might find beneficial about the Summit’s purpose in planting campuses. Here’s some more information about how the meeting in Alamance County has moved from an Extended City Gathering to a Summit Campus.

And here’s a little backstory on us:

*July 2014-I called Jeremy and said, “Let’s sell our house.” He amazingly said okay.
*November 2014-Our house in Durham sold. We “happened upon” some land in Mebane but felt it was too far for Jeremy to commute daily.
*December 2014-We moved in with my parents (in Alamance County) while waiting for more houses to come on the market.
*March 2015-The Alamance Gathering was starting and Jeremy was the closest Summit Pastor around who could help out.
*May 2015-We bought the land in Mebane and trusted God had a plan.
*July 2015-The Alamance Gathering grew and Jeremy was asked to be the Campus Pastor.
*September 2015-We will move into our new home, and the Alamance Gathering will officially become a Summit Campus.

*Side note-Our new home is about a mile from Hawfield’s Middle School where we presently meet for church. Only God!

Is it bittersweet to leave Brier Creek? Definitely! We’ve been there since 2008. It’s all we know. Most of my closest friends and their families go there. Will we still see them? Of course! Mebane is only about 30 minutes from the Summit’s Brier Creek Campus.

But are we so stinkin’ excited about this? Yes! Could only God have orchestrated these events and this incredible timeline? Yes! Should you come to the Summit Church’s new Alamance Campus if you live in the area? Duh!=) (Our next service is Sunday, August 30 at 5:00 at Hawfields Middle School…Yes, that is a shameless plug!)

Honestly, ya’ll, we are so fired up about this. We are excited to partner with some amazing new friends who love the Lord. We are excited to partner with other ministries in the area and see God change lives. He could. His Gospel is that big. And we are humbled and excited to be a part of what He is doing.

Pray ya’ll…we are desperate for a move of His hand in our new Jerusalem!

  1. My “I’m so very happy for y’all” is mixed with bittersweet! I have enjoyed meeting you, getting to know you, albeit not as well as I would have liked, and serving at Brier Creek with you! I wish you an bountiful ministry, a joyful service, and I pray God grant you a deep and abundant spiritual walk in Mebane! We will miss you! I’m thankful for the blog, Tiffany, which grants us a peak into your lives. Best wishes, congratulations, and to God be the glory! Amen!

  2. Joy and more joy is what I experience when reading this. I kid you not guys, Jeremy is a humble men that loves Jesus! If I lived in Alamance I would gladly sit under him as my pastor. Happy for Pollard family and happy for our church!

    Surely it won’t be easy, “But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29

    1. Thank you Raudel! This is so encouraging to us, especially since you and your sweet family have journeyed it before us. I’m blessed to follow Jeremy as he leads our family and this campus. We are so thankful for your prayers!
