Spending Time In North Carolina

May 29, 2009 — 1 Comment

I’m in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, spending time with Jeff Lawrence, a good friend of mine who happens to be a new church planter at Chatham Community Church. I flew out Thursday to help him in any fashion I could because church-planting, no matter how talented you are, is a major hill to climb. Even though I have never planted a church I did join the staff of one that was pretty early in the game (a little over four years old at the time and meeting in a school) and feel like I have a passable understanding of a few “in’s and out’s” of leading a young congregation trying to make it (which sounds like a church-planting issue to me). As soon as I got here we were off to the races and talking about things like membership, mission and sermon series has energized me to both help my buddy and dig in more passionately at what I’m working on for my church. So, while I pray God will use me as an instrument of encouragment and assistance to Jeff, I also believe the Lord will use this time to work in me. Needless to say, I’m looking foward to my time here in the Tar Heel state!
