The Capstone Way
In order to fulfill the vision for Capstone Church, we will set crazy goals, and watch God do the impossible.
We will give aggressively and unselfishly to the work of God in our city and abroad.
We will spend more time SERVING outside the walls of the church than inside the church walls.
We are truly concerned about people growing in Jesus Christ. Therefore, we will not cater to personal preference in our mission to see people grow in Him.
Capstone is led by the vision God gave Pastor Curtis to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We will do all we can to cultivate that vision.
Everything that is alive & growing changes. Our message and mission never changes but our approach will.
We will take things that work and make them better. We don’t wait until something is broken to fix it.
We are future driven. If we see change coming, it is better for us to start making shifts in that direction as opposed to waiting to move all at once.
We don’t short-change our kids. They get our best leaders, funding and efforts. Children and students are at the forefront of everything we do. We don’t give them our left-overs, they get our very best.
We will speak life over every guest, no matter their background.
We are not trying to be spiritually complicated, we are trying to connect.
We will strive to give honor to every person we come into contact with regardless of their background.

Although Pastor Curtis mainly teaches from the New International Version, he also uses other versions as well.
Pastor Curtis was born in Shelby, NC. He was raised in Mooresboro, NC. After the death of his mother, at the age of 10, Curtis felt as if there was no hope left for him. Shortly after that, he moved in with his grandparents, but the feelings of hopelessness and bitterness towards the Lord were still heavy on his heart. Curtis was looking for something to fill the void in his life, so he turned to the streets looking for love and anything else, he thought would and could fill that void. And if life had not already been hard enough for this young man, his father was murdered when he was seventeen—another event in his life that only added to the feelings of hopelessness. Finally, when Curtis was in the 12th grade, he dropped out of high school and pretty much gave up on life.
One night, in a dream, Curtis had an encounter with God and it changed his life forever. He started attending Christ for the Nations church in Shelby, NC. Through the love of God and his church family, the teaching of the uncompromised Word of God, things started falling into place for this young man. He found hope, unconditional love and the support he desperately needed to make the necessary changes in his life. He went to Isothermal Community College and received his High School diploma. Then he attended Oral Roberts University and received his BA in Church Ministries and a Master of Arts in Human Services Counseling with a Cognate in Executive Leadership from Liberty University. Pastor Curtis is now pursuing a Doctorate in Organizational Leadership from Grand Canyon University. God has blessed him to share his testimony and book “Into the Darkness You Shine” on several national television stations.
