Staff Outreach


keeping in the theme of Big Spring Clean the Vineyard staff helped 1 single parent and 1 grandparent today.


We mowed 2 lawns, did the trimming, trimmed roses, moved concrete, steel posts, and generally made the yards look great...We also cleaned a kitchen and a bathroom and generally tidied up a bit...

two teams, we were finished in about an hour(behind the scenes took about 4hrs planing visiting the sites, gathering the materials, buying the panera bagels, and making the coffee)...power mowing yard work is huge fun...

We returned to some home cooked BBQ from Patrick's BBQ
he was wanting to use some of his brisket for the staff...we gladly ablidged...

Deep south style and Kansas City style...can't beat that...


all staff commented we should do things like this more often...pause...

we are all extemely busy...it seems like an interruption from business as usual would cause concern...the oppsite is true...all work and no play by serving others, makes workers inward, not outward.

If you are a church leader and don't have a planned staff...serving day...maybe you need to pause... and ask some questions...

The reality: outward focused leaders don't just naturally become outward focused. They need opportunities to practice outwardness as a team together...it's huge fun and makes an impact both in the people served and in the staff who do the serving...unity, encouragement, remembering why were are here in the first place etc...

the Buzz... people served say,
guess what our leaders did today?
