LC #4

This morning we had our fourth Leadership Community; well third technically since on the date of the last one we served at Eli Pinney Elementary during Dublin's Community Service Day.
Anyway, it was really great to be with the core team of Encounter Church. We were able to celebrate some new leaders, hear from the small group leaders on how they distributed some money to help people in need and find out what ministry opportunities are in store for this summer. We also debuted two videos recently made that will be on our website by the end of next week. The first is about 1min. 30sec. and the other just under five minutes. They basically show what a church plant does on a typical Sunday morning. I'm really happy with how they both turned out.
The thing I wanted to impress on the team was what success looks like at Encounter. I explained that having land and a building are not our goal. Someday we may have those things but their not the things we're striving for. Simply put here's what I told them success at Encounter Church looks like: New Followers - New Leaders - New Churches.
As always, LC ended with each ministry team getting together for their own time to connect, be trained and pray for one another.
