This week our ministry staff went to a conference called Focus on Five. Matt was one of 5 conference speakers and he was the very first one. They asked him to speak on First Impressions. There were pastors there from all over the US, and churches of all different sizes were represented. There were pastors there who’s books we have read. As the conference got ready to start, I told Katie, “I am so nervous.”
He did an awesome job of communicating! Not just how to make a good first impression, but why we need to make a good first impression. (A Focus on 5 podcast will be published soon if you are interested) And we made a video of Karen Dawkins’ testimony of how our first touch teams made a difference in her life. I was in tears and I have heard her story a million times. Check it out here.
God is raising our church up to be a church of influence and Matt is doing an amazing job of leading us. (even if he is my husband, I still think he is doing an amazing job)
Remember – you only have one chance to make a first impression.
