This week Heather and I have been in Denver, CO for the North American Mission Board (NAMB) assessment retreat. We weren’t exactly sure what to expect over the two-day event; so we were a little nervous going in.
At the retreat we met NAMB reps, church planters, pastors, and specialists from all over the country, and their goal was to help us get an accurate picture of ourselves – our strengths and weaknesses – with regard to church planting.
We will not have any official results for a week or two, but our feedback was overwhelming positive, encouraging, and affirming. And while there are definitely some areas in which we need to grow, we feel more confident than ever that we are in line with God’s direction for our lives.
Windsor, here we come!
Heather and I spent the better part of today (Thursday) in the Town of Windsor. The more time I spend there and the more I learn about the town, the more I realize how much need there is and how well it fits our team. We’re so thankful for God’s supernatural guidance in this process. As I read in His word this morning:
“I bow down…and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. On the day I called, you answered me; my strength of soul you increased.” -Psalm 138:2-3
