Hey everybody. After a brief break, I’m back in the blogging world. I want to thank you for your prayers over the past weeks. I can’t tell you what it means to know that I have friends that are thinking of me and praying for me as I was going through the heart tests and catheterization. I received phone calls and emails from friends all over the country as well as here at C3. As you probably already know I’m fine…my health is good…but I am going to make some adjustments. I’m already eating half fat ice cream, low fat hot dogs, and I’ve exercised twice. Just kidding…except for the ice cream.
This past week Martha and I had the privilege of meeting with some movers and shakers for the Kingdom. We were in Greensboro, NC for 2 days meeting with the pastors of some of the largest churches in the state. This is an annual meeting and the purpose is to share ideas and insight with each other on a variety of issues. The best part is the relationships that are formed.
Our family spent the weekend in Va Beach with Pastor Steve Kelly and the Wave Church. Pastor Brian Houston from Hillsong Church was the guest speaker. One of the highlights was eating Indian food with Pastor Brian, Pastor Steve and a few friends after the Sunday night service. It was awesome to spend time with one of the most dynamic and influential pastors in the world. What I love about Pastor Brian and the Hillsong staff is that they are humble, down the earth, and real. But they are fired up about building God’s kingdom around the world.
Today I will be meeting with a group of pastors from the triangle area and some staff from Harvest Christian Fellowship, Riverside, California. We are making plans to host the Harvest Crusade with Pastor Greg Laurie here in Raleigh, June 07 at the RBC Center.
