My Year End Report for 2008

I am giving my year end report and casting vision for this year to our church family. Here are a few thoughts. 2008 was an incredible year! We have so many amazing leaders that make our church such a pleasure to be a part of! Last year was incredibly challenging on so many levels but absolutely amazing! Below are more specifics in regards to the Vision & Mission of our church...

We Exist (our vision)-
To help people experience the freedom & life that God has to offer so that they can become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
This past year we witnessed...
*we experienced explosive growth as a church with hundreds of visitors
*over 500 people committed to weekly attendance
*22 people took a step of obedience in water baptism
*almost half of our church stepped up and served
*our giving to missions & tithes increased
*We raised funds for 5 church plants (1 in Philly, 4 in Cuba)
*our favor in the community continued to grow
*over $8,000 given to local fire departments through our community comedy night!


Our Mission-

Our church is like a table where people come to experience the bread of life. Each one of us should do 3 things at the table.
*Bring- Bring people to the table, the local church.
*Build- Build relationships at the table through small groups.
*Serve- Serve one another at the table through ministry.


As a church, we took some great steps in following through with our mission. I'm so thankful and excited for 2009 as we 'chase the lion' together! God is doing incredible things & I'm so stoked that I get to play a part in all it!

Decade Of Destiny- Year 3, GREATER 2014

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is,  "GREATER,"  based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12,  "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."    2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called,  "Decade Of Destiny."   Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a
