Great weekend in Ft. Lauderdale

I just got back from Ft. Lauderdale where Shayla and I got to go to quite a few churches in the surrounding area and check out what was happening in the local church. It was great to see that there were a few churches who were really connecting with the community. They are really thriving and seeing God do great things in there area of FTL.
I got the opportunity to meet with quite a few pastors in the area to start to network about how we can work together to reach our community for Jesus. It was a great time of sharing and encouraging us to come together on what we agree on to see Jesus made famous in our area. It was amazing how we would just show up to events and different areas of the community and have these random encounters with local pastors.

We also had the opportunity to visit Monarch High School, which is the school that we would like to start our church in this upcoming September. Another church is currently meeting in the school so it was great to be able to see the school in action as a church. The facility is unbelievable with seating up to 550 in the main auditorium with theatre seating, a huge cafeteria for older children and plenty of classrooms for younger kids on the weekend. I got the opportunity to take the pastor who is currently in the building to lunch on Monday and share how we would like to launch our church in the building and his reaction of being totally up for that. In fact he is working on getting out of the school and finding a permanent facility for their church and what great timing we had for launching. God is so faithful when you listen to his voice and obey his commands.

Shayla and I really believe that if we “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, then all these things will be added to us.” God is completely faithful to His word.
