What a great week it’s been here at Liberty University. Kicked it off Tuesday night by attending the Lady Flames basketball game against High Point. We watched Liberty easily defeat High Point 76-57 in the Vines Center (known as The Furnace). Cool name for a Christian university arena. It was cool to have some of the C3 staff with me and 2 of my children.
After the game they got to meet the Frazee triplets. All three are starters on the Liberty team. Check out Caleb’s red hair.
Wednesday morning I had the privilege of speaking to approx. 10,000 university students, pastors, and church planting leaders. I shared with them how they can experience the impossible in their life and see the vision of planting churches all over the U.S. What a powerful and humbling experience. This is the first-ever Church Planting Week at Liberty, and there is an amazing passion and excitement to reach lost and hurting people through church planting.
Wednesday night I attended the service at Thomas Road Baptist Church and the worship was rocking. Fog machines filled the worship center as the campus band led a powerful time of worship. Then Ed Stetzer from Lifeway shared from 2 Corinthians 5:16-21 how
We need to have a new perspective, We are sent on a mission of reconciliation, and how We are representing Jesus and His kingdom.
It is a powerful challenge to consider stepping out and planting a church in the US or around the world. One thing that he shared that really hit me was that often as Christians, we look different from the world but act the same as the worldâ¦ He challenged us to look more like the world but live different. If we do that, we can change the world and our culture. Powerful stuff. I am more excited than ever about all that God is going to do as we network together strategically to make a difference for His kingdom. More to come later including audio and video.
