I love hearing what amazing ministries are doing across the country. Got some suggestions? I'd like to read them.
Here are 3 suggestions for you in no particular order:
- Paul Haugen - A worship leader at Clovis Hills Community Church in Fresno, Ca. A good friend of mine who recently came back from a mission trip to Africa (AKA "Rock the Horn"). He should be putting up some incredible pictures and maybe even some video soon.
- Carlos Whittaker (Ragamuffin Soul) - An employee of Buckhead Church in Atlanta, Ga. Unapologetically real and open with his readers...and he's got a ton.
- Dan Long - A fellow Pepperdine University Alumn. He's now at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Ca. I spent a couple of months in Heidelberg, DE (Germany) with this guy. Very intelligent and fun. I call him "Brother."

Just thought I'd pass along the recent news about New Harvest Church.

One picture show how we painted planets colliding and another shows what happens when you turn on the blacklight. Pretty cool, eh?
Well, here's a picture of John from this weekend. He and his wife attended the Zoe Conference in Fresno, Ca. and stayed at our place for the weekend. We took them on a tour of our church campus and he wanted to see what it felt like to sit on a tiny toilet. Hahaha!

"Join our Launch Team?
By 2020 our population in Fresno is projected to grow by 362,000 people. If we were to provide a church for only 10% of the new growth, we will need 72 new churches with 500 members.
No county in America has more Christians in it today than it did 10 years ago. Church planting is the most biblical way of evangelism. The Church is God’s plan for a broken and lost world.
Even though church planting is extremely important and significant, you don’t need any special skills to join this church planting team. We are looking to increase the size of this team every single day until we ‘launch’ in May.
