we had a great day at the Journey today! we got to preview what is possibly going to be a format that we will use for our multi-campus strategy. Video Teaching! the cool thing is, just as a campus pastor will act, Erik acted as in the role of a campus pastor today, as if it were "the norm" for us to have video teaching. what encouraged me the most was, we had people come forward when Erik invited people to come. it just proved to me that it doesn't matter the teaching method. if God's people are willing to open their hearts and recieve His message, then it doesn't matter who teaches, or how it's presented. the Holy Spirit will do His work regardless!! And to me, that's just awesome!
i wanna give a shout out to all the guys that joined us this weekend for the men's "advance" (real men don't retreat!). we had an amazing time and God was good, as always! i truly believe that men's lives were changed. and as a result, our families, our marriages, and our church are going to benefit! I'm soooo hungry for what God wants to do right now! my "one prayer" for the church, is that we would have the ability to humble ourselves and allow God to do what it is He wants to do. but more than anything, i pray that we would actually, physically, see it.
blessings to you all,
p.s. if you're on my praise team, make sure you're reading Psalms! we are going to spend some time talking about it between services next week. if you need a reading "track" or "schedule", email or talk to Cindy. she has a great one
