Could we…maybe???

So….I’m really being provoked into a new place….I’m getting bored and tired of the same old. I’ve been thinking alot about how to unlock some things in my creative process. I think I’m pretty good at inspiring others in their creative process…I come alive when others around me do great things – now I just need to start doing more great things myself.

I downloaded my current desktop background from Jeff Kapusta’s Blog. It reminds me every day that “Discipline is the Concrete for Creativity”. I am officially spanked…

There is an amazing amount of talent in this city. Churches like Lifepoint and PC3 are doing some incredible things to bring the message of Christ to this city like never before and they are seeing unbelievable results. We have to face facts here, people. In order to effectively reach the unchurched, we have to craft our message into a form that they can understand. They won’t grab hold of chritianese laden messages or cheesy announcement graphics – they certainly won’t stick around long enough to here out of tune singers and unrehearsed musicians playing elevator worship from 10 years ago. 

What we MUST understand is that God deserves our absolute best – He deserves people who don’t complain about coming to rehearsals…people who will show up on time and prepared….people who understand the importance of what we’re doing here. We only have one chance to reach that hurting person who comes in our doors for the first time. We only have one chance to bring the message of salvation to that teenager who is questioning whether or not God even exists. That’s it – one chance! God gives us the opportunity to minister to them and we can screw it up if we have not adequately prepared!

Now – to my wonderful, dedicated and amazingly talented team here at The Rock  – you do an amazing job every Sunday. I have been blessed with some of the best singers, musicians and tech nerds around – and you truly give your time and resources to this ministry. Now, let’s step it up a notch. The vision is worth it. This city is worth it. The message of hope in Christ is worth it!
