Beautiful Eulogy

Beautiful Eulogy is a Portland, Oregon-based group made up of artists Braille, Odd Thomas and Courtland Urbano. The group introduces a distinct and directive sound that’s driven by a desire to worship and glorify the God of the Bible, based in the context of its members’ hip-hop roots and shaped by influences like electronic music, folk songs and old hymns. The natural way Beautiful Eulogy came together parallels its organic creative process. As its members cooperated on various musical and church-related projects, they realized their chemistry and the opportunity before them to form a completely collaborative group that would emphasize a new gestalt — one that would allow them to steer away from a pure hip-hop trajectory while holding onto its origins, and that would free them from the courses of their solo careers while applying their individual talents to a collective.


Captains Dan and Sarah Nelson 

Captains Dan and Sarah Nelson were appointed Territorial Candidate Secretaries in June 2012.  They have a genuine passion for leading people to Jesus and helping them discover how God has uniquely crafted and gifted them to serve Him and others.

The Nelsons have many shared interests.  They both love to travel and meet new people. They are always up for Thai food!  They enjoy watching "Downton Abbey" (...yes, for real).  And of course, they are always ready to brag on their two awesome children - Hannah (age 14, freshman in high school) and Nolan (age 6, kindergartener ... ninja warrior).  One of Captain Dan's goals is to hike the entire Appalachian Trail (a section at a time)  and one of Captain Sarah's goals is to run the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, July 2014.

What Matters?

Friday night at youth councils we will be screening "What Matters?" This is a film that follows three friends, two idealistic activists and one skeptic, attempt to live in extreme poverty (on $1.25 a day) across 3 continents. The adventure takes a devastating turn when two of them survive a deadly plane crash in Africa, and all three must fight to finish what they started
