Northview Church has partnered with Team World Vision since 2013 to raise money that provides clean water for Sub-Saharan Africans. While moving their feet for a great cause, TWV participants grow closer together and form lifelong friendships, all while accomplishing the ultimate goal of completing a half or full marathon.
Over the years, Northview has become known as “the running church” because of the many races and events that take place on the church’s property each year. But for Chris Bartlow, he was far from a runner before joining Team World Vision. Fast forward a few years later, however, and he’s grown closer to God, down about 30lbs, and has raised over $26,000 as part of TWV throughout the years. Let’s get to know Chris a bit more…
SATURDAY MORNING DEVOTIONAL
BY KRISTA RIVERA
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 23 (NIV)
It is so common to worry. As a wife, mother and employee I often get worried and stressed out about all I have to do. There are times that I even get worried about the quantity of daily issues in my life that cause me to worry!
