Random Wednesday Blog

Here are some random things that are on my mind….

  • Today is my wife Martha’s birthday I am so blessed!  She’s loving all of the birthday tweets on twitter and facebook.  She also has an awesome blog marthafry.org
  • Still praising God for an amazing weekend at C3 and the SYATP student Rally Sunday night.  Incredible night of passion, worship and 19 students made a decision for Christ. 
  • So proud of Chris and Tammy Hodges, Pastor of Church of the Highlands, for being the #1 fastest growing church in America according to Outreach Magazine. Looking forward to having him speak here next week for First Wednesday.
  • I’m already getting fired up for our Vision Night, November 5.  God’s already laid a message on my heart and some exciting things are in store for C3 in 2009!
  • Talked with the Mayor of Garner, Ronnie Williams, this morning and he shared that Garner High School had over 100 students praying at their flag pole this morning which is double of what they had last year.
  • Looking forward to speaking at Liberty University this Friday for
    Ministry Chapel.  It’s awesome to see all that God is doing at TRBC and
    Liberty University!
  • At the Innovate Conference last month I had the privilege of praying for Rick Warren, Pastor of Saddleback Church after he finished speaking.  Pastor Jonathan Falwell asked a few of us to join him as we prayed for wisdom and strength. This was just a few days before he hosted Barack Obama and John McCain for a forum/debate.  Here’s a picture from Matt Wilmington’s blog.  In case you don’t know… I’m the bald headed guy on the right.

    Pastor Matt,
    Do me a favor and an experiment all at the same time….One weekend, place a potted artificial plant, an empty chair or maybe some other inanimate object in front of a microphone in the worship center of C3 and see if one of these objects can preach??? I want to see if EVERYTHING at C3 can preach!!! Last night when Scott preached…well he preached UP!! in that place!! And then when Pastor Martha lays the Word down and of course you…….Really, put an insentient article in front of a microphone at C3 and see if it can preach……Cause EVERYTHING else down there sure can!!!! Praise God for this ministry and praise God for the WONDERFUL, spirit filled staff that minister at C3!! **Side Bar** Not real sure I would have “Bulldog” and Christian bring the Word on the same night/day at C3, cause I ain’t sure after these two “bulwarks of the faith” get through that there will be “one stone upon another!!”
    HA!!!! All kidding aside, great job!! Great job!! Great job!!
    We are truly blessed!!!! al.

  • I have had the great privilege of serving alongside 3 of the guys in this photo; Pastor Rick as the Membership Pastor at Saddleback and now Pastor’s Tom and Todd as the Pastor of Adult Ministries at Christ Fellowship.
    Great to see such Godly men together in the same room.
    Thanks for taking this photo.
