Vision Baptist Church is a relatively young church, less than five years old. But in that short time, God has greatly used the church to spread His gospel across the world, and in no small part is that due to Pastor Austin Gardner.
Under his experienced leadership, Vision has gone from meeting in a basement, to renting a building on a main strip of Alpharetta. From a handful of members to a large, diverse congregation full of members who have all been influenced greatly by Pastor Gardner.
And it’s not just in Alpharetta that he’s helped spread the gospel and influence people. In Peru, China, South Africa, the whole of the United States, North Africa, Spain, Chile, Northern Ireland, Argentina, Bolivia, Burkina Faso and so many more countries, Pastor Gardner has been used of God.
And last night, we, as Vision Baptist Church, did everything within our power to show him how much we appreciate him and his wife, and that we love them with all that is in us. That we appreciate all of their hard work, and that it has been used greatly of God in our lives.
And through God using the Gardners in our lives, God takes that work, and has used many of us to help others, creating a chain effect. In this way, it is not at all unfathomable to say that the Gardners have impacted millions of people all over the world.
And as a church, we want so say that we love our pastor and his family, and appreciate them, and all they do.a
