Excitement building

Posted: August 1, 2007 in church, ministry, Sallisaw, worship

Things continue to progress in Sallisaw. We are still staying in Muskogee, but it is not too bad. My time so far has been spent getting adjusted to the town, setting up my office, and brainstorming on ways to meet people and reach out to them. David (our senior minister) and I have spent a lot of time talking about what we want the new service to look like. We know there are certain elements we want to focus on:

Community experience,
Corporate and personal worship
Active, participatory worship
Transformation
Reconciliation
Conversational
Dialog with God
Calling upon God for help, guidance, deliverance
Family, togetherness, community
Search for something to base life on, truth, meaning
Genuineness, authenticity
Intensity
Worship experience, engaging all the senses.

It will be a church that is Personal yet built around Community.
A church that practices acceptance, yet seeks transformation.
One that provides a foundation and truth to build life around.

I am so excited to get started and begin putting these theories and principles into practice. Please keep praying for us as we seek to live out the Gospel to the people around us.

    That is so exciting that you guys have moved and are starting this new adventure. I am sad we didn’t get our families together. But that is life I suppose! Will continue to follow your family by blog!
