We Have A Coach!
Our Leadership Team met and discussed the offer from Andy Hale, a church plant coach from national CBF, to be our coach for ten sessions. Our team agreed that this would be beneficial for us. So, I have contacted Andy and he is excited about helping us explore ideas about reaching the unreached and nurturing their faith in Christ! He has already given us an assignment to read three books to stimulate our thinking. Two of the three books have spoken to us. Ten Most Common Mistakes Made By New Church Starts and The Nuts and Bolts of Church Planting have been helpful. Moreover, following the "Dawnings" model (Dawnings is a retreat sponsored by National CBF to help churches re-dream their dream for their church), prayer is a vital part of our ministry efforts. So, we are reading books, talking to Andy and praying. Let's see what God will do afresh among us. I am excited for the journey. I am working with Andy for us to have conference calls on Thursday mornings.
In Expectant Prayer,
