A Story of Redemption & Celebration...
Noleen and her son, Jomei, were just hoping to be reunited and get off the streets of South Africa. Years later they are once again together and experiencing hope. It was Noleen's dream to take Jomei, now 10 years old, to Disneyland. This is a celebration of their first visit to America and all that the Lord has done in redeeming their broken past! Huge thanks to Naomi Zacharias and the team at Wellspring International for inviting us in to be a part of this ongoing story of restoration!
Meet Nicky Yates, Executive Assistant & Volunteer Coordinator, at Charity Water. After she spoke at the Washington, D.C. Idea Camp she sat down with me to share more about he story and what has been happening with their exciting September initiative at Charity Water...again, huge aplogies for only now getting this out!
You might remember Joshua as author of "I Kissed Dating Goodbye," a book published 13 years ago that still sparks immediate responses on twitter and facebook! We had some good laughs about his journey from author to pastor, and Joshua sat down with us for an interview after dinner while we were hanging out at Starbucks.
"If you sit and watch a plant grow hoping to see fruit you're going to get discouraged...you're going to feel like nothing's happening!"
If you were averaging 2,700 people AND $60K in tithes every week would you consider changing your strategy as a church??? Now, please, suspend your "it's not about numbers and not about money" response...we all know the right answer. Just pause and put yourself in the shoes of a young pastor and/or leadesrhip team who decides to change the direction of their church and sees their weekly attendance drop below a thousand and their HUGE tithe support fall away.
Listen as Steve shares about the impact they've experienced from Andy Stanley's 2007 Catalyst "Systems" Talk and Danny shares about leading their church through recent changes...these guys are a blast to hang out with, really hope to see them again soon!
