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.
