After hearing Pastor Jeff Noblit's preaching online, Josh Tancordo decided to move down to Grace Life Church of the Shoals to serve as a summer intern. While there, he met his future wife, Becky. After Josh had been mentored in Muscle Shoals for four years, the congregation commissioned Josh and Becky to plant Redeeming Grace Church in the summer of 2014.
After Josh and Becky built relationships and hosted a Bible study in Pittsburgh for two years, Redeeming Grace Church officially covenanted together as a church in October of 2016. Today, Redeeming Grace Church is a gospel-centered church that values rich biblical preaching and authentic Christian community. More than anything, they are passionate about Jesus. They want to see him worshiped, treasured, and exalted. To learn more about Redeeming Grace, visit https://www.redeeminggracepittsburgh.com/our-story.
April 2021 Update from Pastor Josh Tancordo:
One of the blessings we enjoyed this past month is pictured above. It may not seem like much, but what you're looking at is actually the first time we've had an organized music team in our church that wasn't visiting from out of town! We also have 2-3 more people lined up to add to the team in the next few weeks. Until now, it has just been our music leader playing his guitar on stage. We praise God for the way he's allowed us to build out this ministry!
In addition, perhaps the biggest source of excitement this past month has been the way God has opened doors for us evangelistically. Many of you may remember that a core component of our approach to evangelism is in-home Evangelistic Bible Studies. Due to COVID, Becky was forced to put her Evangelistic Bible Study reaching out to several women on hold. However, God has now opened those doors once again—and, in fact, has opened them wider than ever!
Finally, the renovations on our church building continue to progress by God's grace. We will host mission teams from three churches this month and are immensely grateful for their help. These churches include Grace Life Church of the Shoals, Shelbyville Mills Baptist Church, and Great Commission Church. One additional team from Clayton Baptist Church will come up in May. Please pray that these trips would be fruitful in every way.
As always, thank you for your prayers and support—and have a wonderful and worshipful Easter celebrating the resurrection of our Lord!
