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!

My Back Story- Week 1- How To Break Your Confidence Crisis

My Back Story-  Part 1 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”   Hebrews 10:35 Confidence maintained in your mind, produces rich rewards in your life. @KevinGerald Key Thought-  Life Is Better When Confidence Is Bigger “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”   Hebrews 11:1-2 (NLT) Faith  is an action, based on a belief, supported by confidence  Confidence  is trust, certainty & boldness in a person or thing.  “The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.”  Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV) When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Feel: Inadequate  --  Inferior
