For Pastor Angelo Moe of the Restoration Christian Center, this was not a hypothetical situation. This was the story of his life, and after coming through on the other side, he was moved to help others also despairing of ever getting back up again.
Restoration Christian Center is a new church to the area of Conyers with the mission to rebuild people one person at a time while building the kingdom of God. Senior Pastor Angelo Moe visions RCC ministering to the lost and fallen believers under the gospel of Jesus Christ and reminding them that there is restoration for them.
RCC was "birthed from reconciliation of the family and rededicating myself back to the call of the ministry God predestined me," said Moe.
He had lost his marriage and his family when he had committed adultery, and as the economy tanked, so did his work as a mortgage broker. With time, after everything came crashing down, Moe began asking the Lord for forgiveness and saw God moving in his life.
"I thought it was going to be quick but it wasn't. I believe God had to see I was going to do what he had asked of me. God has done just that. He restored my family which was priority, he has restored my business and he is allowing me to get back things that I lost," he said. "If God can do it for me, he can do it for anybody."
The church is six months old and growing. Since RCC has opened, Moe said three marriages have been restored and people have been getting employment in a time of recession. "God is honoring our efforts as it relates to restoration, and we are thankful for the manifestation of our lives which proves that this is what RCC is supposed to be doing," said Moe. "We are looking for men/women and families who have a desire to work in the ministry. Perhaps they have been distant from their calling in life and want to get back up again to serve because I can't do this by myself," said Moe.
RCC has a heart to restore families, restore credit and employment through sessions to show others how to get back what they've lost or to gain what they don't have. Currently they are collecting food items, blankets, over the counter cold and pain medicine for their mission to serve the homeless on February 20.
RCC welcomes all to join them for church service on Sunday at 10 a.m. and Wednesday for their thriving Bible study on restoring finances at 7 p.m. Additionally, they have Prosperity Service at 6 p.m. on the Second Sunday, and the fifth Sunday is youth Sunday. They will launch their first Restore Me Now Women's Summit, Feb. 19, at 7:30 p.m. as an evening of worship and resume Feb. 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. sessions at 1581 Lester Road, Conyers.
