Today I have the honor of being a part of Kensington Community Church’s Church Planting Network meeting.
They host this gathering for pastors and church planters 2-3x a year and it is just a fantastic experience!
Now, I’m a little partial to Kensington. I have always admired this church and over the years I have spoke many times for their Jr/Sr High Ministry. And, they are one of the churches that helped launched Thrive and their Executive Pastor serves on Thrive’s Management Team.
Needless to say, it’s a crazy honor to be a part!
And, Kensington is a model of being an open-handed church. They have helped start more churches than I can possibly imagine! It’s just unreal! They give and give and give!
There is nothing like being in a room full of pastors and ministry leaders. It’s just awesome. To hear what God is doing in so many churches is crazy inspiring. To rub shoulders with ministry veterans and rookies is just awesome.
Today there was a moment that just totally blew me out of the water.
Greg, the director of the Church Planting Network asked me to share a few words about our launch. Which, are you kidding me?!? What a GREAT honor! So, I shared what God is doing in Mt Pleasant at Thrive.
Then, Steve Andrews the Pastor of Kensington asked everyone in the room to pray for me and to pray specifically for my back.
It was one of the most humbling moments I’ve ever experienced. Pastors laid hands on me and prayed!
Wow. Just humbled and blessed.
