Monday Proflections – July 28, 2008

Here’s what’s happening with me and CLI that may be of interest to you this week:

Monday – In addition to the usual follow-up from Sunday, I’ll be following-up with the 57 people who were baptized on Saturday at our Beach Baptism (see tomorrow’s post for our follow-up process).  That’s a record for one of our beach events – God is good!

Tuesday – Today I’m teaching an all day seminar for Church Planters who are at the 3 year mark.  This is a private event at our office but if you want to come, shoot me an email.  I love this topic because the 3 year challenges are unique…you’ve survived but will you thrive?  Click here for some resources that may help you if this is where you find yourself.

Wednesday – I’m making the second round of decisions on my new Tele-Coaching Network for Senior Pastors.  It’s not too late to apply, just click here.

Thursday – We have an all-staff meeting today.  We meet every other Thursday for a one hour book study. Currently we are studying Raving Fans by Ken Blanchard.  Our next book is The Complete Book of Discipleship by Bill Hull (see the July Church Leader Insights Newsletter for my review of this book.  You don’t get my newsletter?  It’s free, click here).

Friday – I’m taking a rare Friday off.  Not sure what we are doing yet! Is the X-Files movie worth seeing?

Saturday – I’m leading a Growth Group Servant Evangelism Project on the Upper West Side today.  Our groups have been out every night this week doing Servant Evangelism and today I lead the final ‘group’ of groups.  We do a week of Servant Evangelism every semester.  Our goal is 25,000 touches this week!

The end of July is a great time to be in the city.  I’m looking forward to a great week.  Aren’t you glad we get to do what we do?  I love being a pastor!
