2008


fast year 2007...life in the fast lane makes time fly...

lot's of great things in 2007
Frozen Easter Egg Hunt....burr...now a tribal story...I was there when...

D-16 youth internship
off the chart with 16 teens doin the stuff weekly

Community FunFests
people playing in the game consistently over the summer season reaching low income communities...at the Air Force housing a mom saw the party...just saw...just thought who would do this for us...now at the Vineyard...

Water Everywhere...new format produced great participation...BBQ then go downtown...thousands of bottles out...many great conversations...

Back to School Backpacks
begins the August through December Outflow running as fast as I can season...This year we were presented with Community Service Award from the Trottwood area schools

Main Street Campus Given to the Vineyard
...perhaps a new idea for suburb chrches establishing beachheads in the inner city...2008 will see us developing on ramps for suburb people into the inner city...

FunFest 5
...what can I say but high energy...5k people showing up...Ferris Wheel a huge hit...

Turkeys Giving Away Turkeys
...a new format released 400 turkey surprise dinners into 4 different areas of our community...350 people played in the game...

Thanksgiving Offering
...second year people bringing food, and cash to help the less served in Southern Ohio...road trip always upbeat...this year the truck broke down...more excitement

Making Christmas Dreams Come True
...again an off the chart event for 1400 people who attended and 400 Vineyard people serving...many stories...

7 Christmas Eve Services
...hundreds of people hearing the good news...

This was the year people gave us stuff, more stuff than we could believe...a building, a coffee bar, now funds for a new truck...our old truck...drivers door doesn't work, no life gate, it changes oil and antifreeze daily...a new truck will help greatly...


Personal...
Thinking forward and the areas I want to see God have more control over in 2008 (listen to John Ward's Vineyard message Big God)

Faith
...I want to grow in faith... more importantly in my relationship with God this year...means more scheduling to wait, worship, and welcome Him

Family
...Consistently seeing family ties strengthened

Future...Looking for my future track to begin to develop in 2008...I have a desire to help other churches develop outwardness...perhaps my 30 years playing in the game might open some doors the help motivate other young pastors. Maybe write a book...titled Google Out Google In...visionary lessons in leadership

Finances
...Believing for our personal debt would be wiped out this year we are making good progress

Favor
...One constant, consistent prayer point...God gives favor...favor is worth more than gold...We've been asking for God to give us favor and increase His blessing on our lives...
