#1 – What a weekend! My friend TIMMY…or most recently identified as “TIM” got married in Missouri this past weekend. It was such a joy to see him and his bride step into the next phase of their life together. I’m so proud of that kid and SO THANKFUL that I know him and can call him a friend. Can’t wait to see how God uses him & Brooke in Africa this year!
#2 – One of my favorite parts of the weekend was spending time with some of my favorite “kids” from Generation 1:9. They are all grown up now…makes me feel old and proud at the same time. Such a blessing to see them living for and serving God as adults.
#3 – At Oasis, Pastor Bill Gross wrapped up the series “I Was Broke, Now I’m Not” talking about Money and MIRACLES. My favorite part of his sermon was when he said “Some miracles wipe out the problem, while some miracles give you what’s needed to walk in the problem.” That’s SO TRUE!! Check out his sermon ONLINE as soon as it is published. (http://subsplash.com/oasis)
#4 – FYI in the month of January, during a series on MONEY, dozens of people received Christ. THATS what this is all about…making Jesus the center of everything and the other stuff falls right into place.
#5 – I’m DATING someone!! Her name is Jennifer…and she’s incredible. Of course, you’ll hear more about her eventually 🙂 I’ve been spending a lot of time with her this year and I really like her a lot.
#6 – I’m REALLY PUMPED about our NEXT message series entitled “Fierce.” It’s all about God’s obsession with YOU. The ENTIRE month of February is a PERFECT opportunity to invite a friend to church. Seriously, you shouldn’t come to church alone this month, bring someone with you!
#7 – Cannot wait for the Oasis MENS RETREAT at Myrtle Beach, March 2-4. We’ve taken a small group of guys the past 2 years, but this is the first year we have really promoted it. Nothing like getting away with the guys for a couple days! BTW – early registration ENDS tomorrow. Get it done!
#8 – I REALLY BELIEVE that 2017 is going the be the BEST year Oasis has ever had. Some of the things we have lined up between now & Easter are going to be impactful in so many ways. I can’t wait to see how the next 3 months unfold.
#9 – Been praying Acts 2:47 over Oasis this year…and I genuinely think it’s possible to see it happen throughout all of 2017!!!
#10 – I’m blown away by who GOD is, where I get to SERVE, what I get to do every week…AND the PEOPLE I get to do it all with….I am so hopeful about all the possibilities that may unfold this year.
