People ask me sometimes, how are you doing and I answer, “living the dream."
That statement couldn’t be more real in this last few months. My dream is to reach people who are far from God and to watch God’s church change the spiritual landscape of a community.
Seven weeks ago, we began training a group of about 50 people at our South Paulding campus. We will “officially” open on Feb. 22 to the public. God is at work!
Yesterday, 50 people gathered at the YMCA and we started training our New Season Tennessee campus! It was a great start with much enthusiasm!
None of this would be possible without a great team of people around me…team work really does make the dream work.
In I Chronicles, chapters 11 and 12, we see where David’s “mighty men” are mentioned. The Bible describes these men as courageous, skilled and loyal warriors. These men had the ability to fight a hundred men at a time.
David had a great team around him. With a strong inner circle, David was able to accomplish his dream.
It is true that those closest to you will determine your level of success. David was surrounded by men who made him better. I am surrounded by so many people who make me better!
I love what Hall of Fame coach, John Wooden said, “the main ingredient of stardom is the rest of the team.”
Great teams fully embrace the vision and intentionally, consistently and passionately make a contribution toward its fulfillment. When God puts together a visionary leader and a great team of like minded people come alongside that leader, great things will happen.
Great things are happening and I get to be apart of it! I’m living the dream because of so many of you!
