A few weeks ago I met with some local worship leaders from a few other churches about starting a multi-church worship team. I really believe in the big “C” in church and that unity is really the only way we are going to change the culture in our community. Last week we had our first practice. We have started small and have only told a select few about it just to get something established. In the near future we will be inviting even more churches to jump on board and maybe even springboard into some other things.

Ok back the the practice. God is amazing. This is one talented group of musicians. We have 2 guitars, piano, 2 lead vocals, drums, bass, and sax. Let me tell you this band was tight. We did a few songs that only 1 or 2 of us knew or have even heard and they only took one time to play them because they were amazing.

I am truly floored sometimes at what God can do in us and through us when we actually take up His mission. I am expecting great things here. God has some awesome stuff planned.

Stay tuned for more news, including a facebook fan page, about this band and its hopeful future participation from other area churches. We will be doing worship at this years national day of prayer and I think having a team comprised of musicians from more than one church is really gonna shake things up.

Dinner with a youth blogger

February 1, 2008 — 4 Comments

So last night I had the pleasure of having desert/dinner with a fellow blogger, youth pastor, and rapper in my area.

His name is Steve Patton. Go check out his blog.

Ignore the hat in the photo…it was retro night at his youth group…:)

Anyway, I brought along our Jr High Youth director and the 3 of us had drinks and food and a great time.

We discussed youth, worship and our local culture.

It became very obvious that we were all on the same page.

After a little while our Jr high youth director Suzanne had to run and the restaurant closed.

We ended up talking outside in 15 deg. weather for another hour.

We have some big plans with multi church events and we are now both fired up with really taking Christ to the the streets.

Great times…killer pomegranate iced tea and inspiring vision…can it get any better?
