Better late than never, right?
You might be wondering why a month has gone by without a post… I have three reasons.
Reason #1: Baby Kate and Cartwheels
I’m still trying to figure out how to juggle full-time ministry, adding my voice to the #kidmin community, and spending time with our son and daughter. Seriously, who would pick sitting in front of a computer screen over this adorable little girl?!
And, how could I NOT take this little guy to Disneyland… it’s half an hour away and we have annual passes!
Reason #2: Meeting 5 People
In this series of posts, I went big and listed 5 people I wanted to share a meal or a cup of coffee with in 2010. I’ve spent the last month praying about how to make those dreams a reality. Now that the year has officially started, I’m going to begin my march toward collaboration. The Napkin Conference (February 25-26) and The Orange Conference (April 28-30) should help check a few of those names off the list. Jim Wideman and Sue Miller, I’m talking to you.
Reason #3: Christmabirthdays
Christmas is a crazy season for those of us in ministry.
Glenkirk Church hosts 4 Christmas eve services… two of which are geared specifically to young children and their families. In fact, we’re shifting our strategies to reach families in some new and exciting ways this year. Revving up for Christmas and then launching large ministry plans for 2010 takes concentration. I also spent a night with some of our best friends rocking out to karaoke & celebrating my birthday. Now that the holidays are over and things are under way, I’ll use this space to share some of the strategic ways our team plans to reach families with the Gospel of Jesus in this coming year. For a glimpse, check out what we sent to the families who visited our church in 2009 by clicking HERE.
All that to say, it’s good to be back.
