Beach Baptism 2006,
Wow! What an amazing feeling to be a part of 350 people taking their next step of obedience! Yesterday we baptized 350 people on the beach. I have not blogged in a while, I guess because I did not feel inspired, but as I sit here tonight looking through all the photos, I realize how many lives were changed on Sunday. It is humbling to think that God would allow me to be a part of that. I am going to try to post some of the pics over the next few days to give you a glimpse of what happened if you missed it. Above is a picture of our "Baptism Team". I am privileged to be a part of this group.
Next is a picture of a wave about to strike as God decides he would like to baptize a couple without our help.
I can never explain to you the feeling of looking up on that beach from the water and seeing hundreds of people clapping and cheering for those who experienced life change that day.
From the beach again,

One Church Where You Are
Pastor Troy asked me several months ago to begin dreaming of an "Internet Campus". At first, I did not fully understand what he was dreaming but quickly discovered that there are lots of folks who either geographically or physically can't attend our existing services. We already have jumped into the “physical” multi-site world and are vigorously pursuing that vision, but the internet campus can give us a true “where you are” option for anybody. Above is a picture of me experiencing the internet campus while on vacation in Sanibel (on my cell phone of all things). Below are some more pics. We are testing the live feed right now, so I am able to be an internet campus attender when I am away and begin to experience what our internet campus attenders will experience in the future. Soon we will be One Church ANYWhere You Are.
