Well, it been over a month now since we’ve gone to two services and I think it was one of the best decisions we’ve made. Some one said to me a while back “You can only have as much water as the cup holding it. So if we want more water we need to make more room in the cup.” Well we did just that and as a result we have seen more people attending our weekend services.

Whoever that’s not the best part … one of the think that we often get stuck on in the church world is numbers. And yet we we’re never challenge (by Christ) to seek after bigger crowds to attend our events, We were given the call to reach those who don’t know Christ (un-churched). Well that’s the best part about our story … since we’ve gone to two services not only have we seen an increase numerically, but also an increase in those who before this weren’t involved in any community of faith. We’re seeing on a regular basis new faces to our church family … but more importantly new member in the family of God.

God is Good … All the Time!

Everyone has people that speak into there lives, as a pastor one of those guys for meĀ is Mark Driscoll. I just came across this video where he is discussing the seeker sensitive approach to ministry vs. being Missional. It will definitely make you think!

Well today marks the one year anniversary of me becoming the Lead pastor of Ridgewood Church (And the merger of two churches into one). When I look back at all God has done it’s really amazing to see how He works. Ridgewood Church is really an amazing place…it’s a family not just in name alone but in reality.

There’s a couple of things that I have learn / know for sure…God has a perfect plan that he will work out and as long as we hang with him he will never lead us astra. Second I’m living my dream…I believe that the best is yet to come!
