Share Article

Virginia-based, New Life Christian Church announced today that special guest, First Sergeant Matthew Eversmann, will be giving a presentation about how the military improved his relationship with God.

Everyone wrestles with the big questions of “Who am I?” "What matters? Why am I here?" and "What happens after I wake up dead?” We try to provide a place where people can discover answers to life’s most important questions.

In 1993, Matt Eversmann was an Army Ranger serving in Somalia when he and his fellow soldiers were trapped inside a hostile area in Mogadishu for eighteen hours. Until their rescue, these soldiers were vastly outnumbered and targeted by an angry mob.

For the courage and leadership that Matt demonstrated during the ambush, Sergeant Eversmann received a Bronze Star Medal with Valor device and the Combat Infantryman’s Badge. His inspiring story of survival is portrayed in the film “Blackhawk Down.”

First Sergeant Matt Eversmann is committed to sharing the lessons that he learned in the military. He uses his experiences to provide valuable insight about the importance of leadership, courage, responsibility and how these relate to our relationship with God and others. Matt’s warm approach, powerful story and important lessons are expected to have a profound effect on his audience at the event.

Before retiring in 2008, Matt Eversmann received a number of additional military decorations including the Army Service Ribbon, the National Defense Service Ribbon, eight Army Achievement Medals and four Army Commendation Medals.

“We agree with Pascal who observed that everyone has a God-sized vacuum in the soul,” said Brett Andrews, Lead Minister and Founder of New Life Christian Church. “Everyone wrestles with the big questions of “Who am I?” "What matters? Why am I here?" and "What happens after I wake up dead?”  We try to provide a place where people can discover answers to life’s most important questions. That’s why we’re convinced Sergeant Eversmann's story will connect with so many."

New Life Christian Church strives to create a fun, casual environment where people can discover God. The church offers a safe environment for every individual, regardless of age, habits or hang-ups. New Life Christian Church believes in living life to its fullest and learning the art of laughing at one’s self, while still taking God seriously.
