Heading Out to Chicago and LA

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Various

I am at the airport (once again) getting ready to board my flight out to O’Hare. Tonight I will be sharing with the church about some exciting changes that will be happening in September. As I reflect back on the last 11 months of this church plant in Evanston, it is humbling to know that God has been faithful to us. We have seen steady growth in our church and have witnessed the lives that have experienced transformation.

Even though it is the summer time, we have seen a core group of people who are committed and ready to make a difference. It is a completely different story from the first summer here in Ann Arbor when we only had about 10-15 people during the summer season.

I am looking forward to spending some time with the leaders in Chicago to encourage them and to cast the vision for this coming year. I will also be meeting up with some people who are going to be a core group of people for future work on another campus. God is truly faithful and He is moving (quickly). We just want to track with God as best as we can – where He leads we will follow.

Then on Monday I am heading out to LA to meet up with the TLT pastors. We are going to spend some time in prayer and try to plan things out for the future of AMI.

I am thankful that God is allowing me to do what I am called to do – it is truly a privilege.

TC Prayer Summit 2007 Update 2

The leaders of our church had a great time praying together. There have been moments in the history of our church where the Spirit of God has allowed us to have concentrated times of prayer. It was crucial that the leaders of our church first set the example in praying for the things that are coming up this year.

I was able to share part of the vision that God has given to us as a church. It will require a lot of faith and trust in the Lord as we proceed forward. I shared about how this coming year we are going to follow God’s lead in expanding in various areas with future church plants as well as in growth with the mother church here in Ann Arbor.

The last night’s worship gathering was focused on the Holy Spirit and the importance of being empowered and enabled to do the task that God has called us to accomplish for His glory.

It was good for us to wait upon the Holy Spirit and allow Him to anoint us to even intercede for the concerns of our church. Some good things are coming up on the horizon.
