Last Week

Was a good week. I had to go to district meetings. I never look forward to attending these meetings but usually end up having a good time. That was the case this year. Our District Pastor, Rob McDonald, was gracious enough to give us some time during his annual report to tell the assembly what was going on here in Rowlett. Very cool, I was able to lay out the basic vision and strategy and he had all the pastors on the district come and pray for us. Very cool moment.

We walked away with about 10 or 11 pastors wanting us to come to their church and share our vision. Many of them want Sprang to lead worship and for me to preach. Should be very cool. We will be able to gain prayer support from these congregations as well as receive a love offering at most locations.

The highlight of the week was seeing Sprang be ordained as an elder in the Church of the Nazarene. He was by far the tallest person ordained and had 10 times as much hair as the other guy getting ordained. Ask Sprang about the Bible....

My trusty GPS unit got me to and from the meetings and helped me find all kinds of restaurants. I think I have already gotten my money's worth out of that thing.

Yes, yes, about the bible.

well, first you must hear the back dad was a youth/music pastor for a good number years and we were living in KC while he was going to seminary. while there, he got ordained but on the night of the service he called my mom and said he forgot his bible could they bring him one.

on thursday night i was getting dressed and realized that i did not have my bible so i called my mom, but they didn't have one. i used my father-in-law's bible. he thought that was pretty cool. he also was the one that prayed for me during the service and he talked about my grandfather and father both being ministers and now i am a 3rd generation nazarene ordained elder. since my dad passed away when i was 7, i hadn't really thought about it being a generational thing. that's pretty cool.
