Church Planting is probably one of the hardest jobs that I have tackled in my 25 years of ministry. I must be a real glutton for suffering because shortly after I planted the church that I currently lead, we merged with a dying legacy church in the heart of the demographic that God called us to serve. So the vibrant church plant turned into an ongoing revitalization project that is now approaching its fifth birthday.
Staying the course…(In Planting)
I love my church!
I truly do…I love the people, the location and everything else that is involved with the gathering we planted a little over three years ago.
I am so stoked about our line up for Fall ’15. We have great opportunities for people all over our city to be involved. I want to encourage you to find a LifeGroup and plug in! Please let me know if you have any questions about our upcoming semester! Invite and PLUG in!
I am searching for experienced life group leaders and Bible Study teachers to help take our 2.5 year old Church Plant to the next level.
I am looking for several faith filled, missions minded, and highly motivated individuals who want to make much of Jesus in Jacksonville Florida by pouring into the lives of new believers by teaching God’s word.
I am always amazed at how we try to reach people who are totally different from us. Churches have had to become laboratories were tried and true methods are constantly being challenged changed and in some cases…totally discarded. The world is so different now and the modern church must quickly identify the differences in people and adjust their plans at creating community and attempting effective outreach.
Does your past haunt you?
In my 55 years of life…daily spinning around on this planet we call home…I like to think!
I have learned some valuable lessons while traveling down life’s highway at warp speed. I would like to take this opportunity to share a lesson that I have learned…or that I am learning.
I am writing to the membership and friends of the POINT this morning with a major prayer request for our church. If possible, I am asking that each of you share this post with all of your praying friends. I am believing that God is going to do something great in this unique challenge that we are facing as a church plant.
Darkness, un-forgiveness and hate…
