Week in Ft. Lauderdale

September 22, 2008

I just spent the week in Ft. Lauderdale building relationships with some potential individuals who would be a part of the dream team for Coastal Community Church. I had a great time sharing the vision of what this life giving church would look like and how we as a body could affect our community for Jesus Christ. I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with Rob Hoskins, who is the president of Book of Hope, and got some really great insight on the state of the church in Ft. Lauderdale and the need for the local church to make an impact. In Ft. Lauderdale there are less than 49% of the people who claim to believe in God where the national average is 89%. That just lets us know that God has definetly led us to a place that is in desperate need to hear of the life changing message of Jesus Christ.
