It’s been three months since Eddie Cutrer first entered the doors of Milestone Church. Since then Eddie has experienced a radical life transformation that has affected his entire family.
“Prior to accepting Jesus into my heart and really committing my life to Christ, my life was a real mess. I had been in a failed marriage that ended in divorce and although I never considered myself an alcoholic, I look back now and realize that I was covering up my guilt and depression with alcohol. I fell into a deep depression and the drinking became even worse. My life needed to change.
My wife Mindy and I were invited to Milestone on the second week of the Restart series (February 12) and we knew that God had placed us there. Everything that day just spoke to my heart and I knew at the end of the service that I was ready to ask Jesus into my heart.
Since I gave my life to Christ, my life has been very different! There is a freedom that comes with salvation! I gave all of my stress, my guilt from the past and my entire life to Jesus. Milestone has truly become our spiritual family and a huge part of our lives. I handle situations differently because I am seeking God’s advice. My family sees a change in me. I am studying God’s Word everyday and constantly reminded of what God can do and is doing in my life.”
Since his very first visit to Milestone, Eddie has been passionate about taking next steps and getting involved. He and his wife, Mindy, have completed the Growth Track by attending Discovery 101, Dream Team 201, and Values 301. They volunteered during Easter Eggstravaganza and Serve Day, and Eddie has started serving on our weekend usher team.
Two weeks ago, on April 23, Eddie and Mindy hosted a Discovery 101 table for the first time. Eddie has been involved with a men’s small group and is also hosting a middle school small group at his house for his daughter Ella. This past Sunday, Eddie and his younger daughter Evyn, decided to take a huge step together and be baptized.
The transformation that has happened in Eddie’s life and family is a perfect example of what Reaching People, Building Lives looks like. God’s desire is that the local church would be a place where people can encounter hope, find spiritual family, and experience life change. Thanks, Eddie, for sharing your story with us!
