Had a nice vacation… and then a nice day off from blogging yesterday. Back to WORK today for little Chucky! We’ll not really… I’m driving to Richmond right after posting this blog to visit my Father in law in the hospital… he’s such a super guy, having a bad few days. Merle has tremendous FAITH and I’m certain he will come through this all right! Thanks for the prayers.
Gonna return calls on the road and multitask as much as possible. Thank God for the AMAZING leadership team we have in our ministry… that so much takes place even while I am out of the office. Being out these past two weeks has shown me the POWER and POTENTIAL of a dream team! One person can only do a few things alone… but when one person is a tiny part of a larger whole, he can create tomorrows better world!
Tomorrows world needs to be CREATED ON PURPOSE. We should not leave her to time and chance. Evil prevails ONLY when GOOD people do nothing. Therefore, we should DO SOMETHING… lots and lots of SOMETHINGS to shape tomorrow!
To best create change… measurable change, we need to work well together in one common purpose. This means that we POOL our time, talents, and resources into ONE PLACE for LARGE SCALE PURPOSES. We assemble around a daring dream… and we aim in a common direction.
This is true of businesses, ministries, families, and even nations. United we stand, divided we fall. The limitless power of ONE COMMON PURPOSE is epic beyond comprehension!
My role in this whole picture is three fold.
- Be the very best player for my team… to contribute my personal BEST to something MUCH BIGGER THAN MYSELF.
- To COACH well, lead my team in BOLD AND DARING directions, and carry out mandates that matter in the face of eternity.
- Be an encourager of other teams and other coaches… to support everyone else aiming to create tomorrows better world.
In ministry, we know that all the little ministry teams belong to Christ, who is the head of his worldwide church. Even though we have so many varying ideas about how we should go about creating change… we are working for a common eternal purpose and that unites us.
This is why I want to be encourager to other coaches and other teams… as much as possible. Sometimes, this is not easy… and so I pray for the GRACE to see beyond the things that divide us, so that I can fully appreciate the things that UNITE us.
I appreciate everyone who appreciates my coaching and my playing. I thank God for my encouragers… for the synergy I draw from other coaches and other players. I thank God for people like Pastor Chris & Sara Whetzel of Believers Victory Center in Moorefield West Virginia… what a coach and what a team! For my dear friend Pastor Bruce Hankee of Greenmont Fellowship, right here in my home county. I am privileged to exchange encouragement with these and so many other GREAT coaches and GREAT teams scattered throughout the earth! We are better together than we could ever be alone!
My team is an AMAZING team! I’m talking about the tribe I’m leading, the team I’m personally coaching! It’s GROWING every day… even every HOUR these days… and thanks to the internet, there are no bounds… there are no limits to HOW EFFECTIVE this team can become! I thank God for the BEAUTIFUL people at Destiny Family Center… and for all the other beautiful people connected to this team through the blog, twitter, and facebook. Let’s keep GROWING… and together we will achieve MEASURABLE levels of change!
If you have a specific talent you would like to dedicate to this tribe… please let us know! Right now, we’re looking for help in graphic design, web development, web broadcasting, social networking expansion, and… oh, finances of course!
I pray that today’s blog adds tremendous value to your amazing lives! Spend some time meditating on YOUR CONTRIBUTION to the team of teams you’re connected with. How can you become a more significant player in the dream of creating a better tomorrow?
Have a super day everyone!
