We’re just 1 week away from the official launch date of Soma! The closer we’ve gotten, the more it’s felt like a God-led movement and less like “just another church service.”
There have been so many blessings along the way, that I just have to share some of them…
- God has worked years ahead of us to build a foundation with Reset before we’d even learned the word “Soma.”
- We approached GCC’s other leaders with this crazy-sounding idea and they almost immediately embraced it as “our” idea.
- We came to the conclusion that we needed to get away to somewhere that would help us get away and shift our thinking from “church services” toward developing a “discipling culture.” Within days, a friend passed along info about the Synergy Ignite conference where we connected with Greg Nettle and Alex Absalom and had our whole mindset rocked.
- We prayed for God to bless us with resources to fund the vision He’d given us and within 24 hours had a check in hand for almost the exact amount.
- We prayed that God would lead us to cross paths with like-minded individuals who could join with the core team and we’ve had a trail insanely talented people coming to us and asking to be a part of what God’s doing.
Those are just some highlights of all that God’s been doing behind the scenes. Seriously, all along the way things have fallen into place in a way that can only be explained with Jeremiah 29:11.
As we prepare to enter the final stretch of preparation, I can say this with absolute certainty… The Kingdom of God is alive and powerful in Brown County. It is expanding. It is reproducing. It is the light in a dark place. And… It is winning.
I hope to see you at Soma on January 15… Check out www.soma-church.com in the meantime!
