I am a huge sports fan. My whole family loves sports, especially basketball. My favorite player is Michael Jordan. I believe he is the best there has ever been and it will be a long time before anyone else comes close to measuring up to him.
I love the days when Jordan played for the Chicago Bulls and when he was part of the Dream Team, the U.S. Olympic team made up of the greatest stars in the NBA.
I want to say publicly that I have the privilege to pastor the Dream Team of church volunteers. Our volunteers are the “Michael Jordans” of serving. They step up weekly to give countless hours of their time to serve others and they do it with willing hearts and excellence. Team Ministry leaders train and develop their people to serve in the most effective ways possible.
We had five Easter services last weekend at New Season and I am proud to say that we had an abundance of volunteers. I just want to say THANK YOU to each of you who serve in any area: Parking Lot team, Guest Services, Coffee Bar, Greeters, Ushers, Security Team, VIP Reception, Production Team, Band, Decision Counselors, Baptism Team, Response Team, Prayer Team, Next Steps Reception Team, Facilities Management, Communion Team, Counting Team, Office Support, Pre School/Children’s Ministry, Student Ministry, Unity/Discipleship Group Leaders and Soul Care Ministry. You men and women make it possible for lives to be changed every week. What you are doing is making an eternal difference!
I also appreciate the incredible staff that God has put together at New Season. Men and women who love God, love people, have a “whatever it takes” attitude and desire to make an impact. I appreciate you all: Jaron Shaffer, Bill Sizemore, Jack Henry, Vickie Flockhart, Ashley Keane, and Sheelfood and Karlota Louimet. Thank you for your hearts for ministry and your desire to see people come to Christ.
I am grateful for the opportunity to pastor the greatest people on the planet and to work along with the Dream Team. Thank you for all that you do at New Season Church!
