Review of LC

It was a great time with leaders yesterday at leadership community. As it's titled, our leaders really spent time together in community. First connecting over coffee and Rice Krispies, then celebrating our new ministry leaders and vision for the future. I reminded them of the things we measure based off of the philosophy, "You inspect what you expect". There are five basic things we inspect to see if we are truly living out our core values: Baptisms, Attendance, New Leaders, Tithes & Offerings, Small Groups & Bible Studies, and a church plant birthed out of Encounter. Presently there is growth in the first four and the fifth, a church plant, is something we have put 5% of our offerings toward since last January 2009. Our dream is to see a church planted out of us before we ever own land or a building. That may be a little radical for some but it is what we have been talking about since the beginning of the plant. Just before getting into our various ministry teams I asked everyone to get into groups of two or three and pray.
